The 2020 Portland Beer Week has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. For the most up-to-date information, please visit the Portland Beer Week website.
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, PDX Beer Week features limited-edition brews, a lineup of events and beer specials at bars and brewpubs citywide. The festival will return in a virtual form in 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus. However, expect the event to return in it’s normal fashion in 2021, overflowing with so much hop fever that the “week” spills into 11 full 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 11 days, after all.)
Portland, home to more breweries than any other city on earth, has pioneered the craft beer movement since the early 1980s.
