    In Portland, any month of the year could be dedicated to local beer — what with our 60+ breweries and countless bars and pubs — but since 2007, it’s mainly July that’s been officially known as Oregon Craft Beer Month. From hefeweizens to sours, fruit beers to IPAs, brewers celebrate legendary local brews by packing the month with hundreds of activities and countless taproom specials. Keep an eye out for brew-centric events all summer long.

    Portland events

    Oregon Craft Beer month is celebrated throughout the state. Some of the events in Portland include Puckerfest, a celebration of sour beers hosted by bottle shop Belmont Station, and Lagerfest, which brings offerings from more than 50 breweries to the Central Eastside’s White Owl Social Club.

    Oregon Brewers Festival

    The month culminates in the truly epic Oregon Brewers Festival in downtown Portland’s Waterfront Park. Tapping some of the world’s best brews since 1988, this annual rite of summer draws more than 85,000 discerning drinkers with pours from more than 90 craft breweries over five days. Stop by the International Tent, which features brewers from the Netherlands and New Zealand, for even more exotic offerings. Rare and specialty beers from across the country are accompanied by both food vendors and live music, creating one of the most festive scenes in Portland, any time of the year.
