The 4th annual Peche Fest, Oregon’s only festival dedicated to drinking (and eating) the world’s greatest fruit—the peach—returns Saturday, October 8, at Saraveza and the Bad Habit Room in Portland. Nature’s finest creation, the peach, will be on tasty display with tart, fuzzy, juicy peachy goodness with 25+ beers and ciders from sweet, funky to sour and barrel-aged. As usual, there will be a special food menu of sweet and savory items made with peaches. Both General Admission tickets (3-10pm) and special limited VIP session (1-3pm, limited to 50) tickets are now on sale.

There will be annual classics like Upright Brewing’s Fantasia and Logsdon’s Peche ‘n Brett alongside new buzz-worthy beers like Almanac’s Peach de Brettaville, Block 15’s Peach Pit Wit, De Garde’s Imperial Stone Bu, and even new peachy debuts by breweries like Great Notion and Deschutes.
