The Portland Craft Beer Festival (PCBF) will be an annual opportunity for patrons of legal-drinking age to sample a substantial representation of beers originating from every brewery in Portland. What makes the PCBF unique is the fact that only beers brewed within the city limits of Portland will be featured at the PCBF. Aside from beer, there will be selections of Portland’s crafted ciders and wines, as well as locally operated food vendors. Individual participation cost is $25 for a keepsake mug and 10 beer tickets. The first 6,000 attendees will receive a souvenir PCBF mug, good for return entry. With some exceptions for special beer or wine, one ticket will yield one 4 oz pour and four tickets will buy a full pour. Additional tickets will be available for purchase during the festival at $1.00 apiece. By purchasing advance tickets through PortlandCraftBeerFestival, each entry will receive an extra 5 tickets.
