Beer lovers rejoice! Zwickelmania is back for its 12th year. This is the one day a year when Portland breweries big and small open their doors to casual and hardcore beer fans. All participating breweries offer events like meet-the-brewer, beer tastings, brewery tours and food and beer pairings. Check out the Zwickelmania webpage for participating breweries, maps and details on what each brewery has in store for you.
The Portland metro area kicks off the celebration on Saturday, Feb. 15. The following weekend, Zwickelmania events will be held in the rest of the state: Central Oregon, Eastern Oregon, Mt. Hood/the Gorge, Southern Oregon, The Coast and the Willamette Valley.
