2017 Spring Nano Beer Fest – Now Under New Management

Stretching back nearly ten years, the Nano Beer Fest began at Max’s Fanno Creek Brewpub in Tigard in 2008 before relocating to southwest Portland in 2016. Now the Nano Beer Fest is under new management from some of the folks behind Hotlips Pizza and the Portland Craft Beer Festival and returns bigger and better to the recently remodeled John’s Marketplace in Multnomah Village. Nano Beer Fest is now planned as a bi-annual event featuring 50+ beers, ciders, meads, and soft beverages made by some of the newest members of the local craft industry!

More from a press release:

One of the main differences you’ll notice at Nano Beer Fest is that, for the most part the beers will be poured by the brewers themselves! We will have floater volunteers from the Oregon Brew Crew and PDX Brewers Club to fill in the spaces, so everyone serving will be knowledgeable about beer. The event will be held at John’s Marketplace, one of Portland’s finest beer stores!

Individual participation cost is $20 for a keepsake logo glass and 10 beer tickets.  1 ticket will yield one 2oz pour, 2 tickets a 4oz pour and 3 tickets will get a full pour (7oz).  Additional tickets will be available for purchase at $1.00 each.

There are advance ticket packages available through www.nanobeerfest.com that will get attendees more for their money: $20 for glass, and 15 tickets and a VIP package for $30 that includes 25 tickets and early entry on Friday (1 pm) with the industry folks to beat the crowd and enjoy more beer!
