In Beervana, suds are celebrated every waking and drinking hour — but Portland’s PDX Beer Week takes that adoration for beer to the next level. Every June, Portland Beer Week brings limited-edition brews, a lineup full of events and specials at bars and brewpubs citywide. The festival (which returned June 7–16, 2019) overflows with so much hop fever that the “week” spills into 9 days of thirst-quenching fun.
Special events like pairings, brewer’s dinners, seminars, neighborhood pub crawls, tap takeovers and much more keep the beer and the fun flowing every year. Portland restaurants even get in on the PDX Beer Week celebration, often offering special beer-inflected products at local eateries. (In light of all those suds, it’s probably smart to spread the week over 10 days, after all.)
