Portland’s Fresh Hop POP-UP Beer Fest Returns

Burnside Brewing Co., Portland Beer Week, and Willamette Week present the 2nd annual Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest in Portland this September 20 – 24th at NE 7th and E Burnside. This partially covered outdoor beer garden features the freshest fresh hop beer of the season, all made using undried hops picked from the bine and brewed within 24 hours. The Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest will feature ten taps (up two from last year) of rotating Pacific Northwest fresh hop goodness with daily special tappings and featured theme nights with some of the brewers.

In addition to over twenty fresh hop beers pouring over the 5-day pop-up fest, there will also be a special Oktoberfest-style beer garden food menu of specials from Burnside Brewing available outdoors at the fest at discounted prices. Also new this year are an expanded covered tent and outdoor fire pits to keep warm during the cool fall breeze. There will be no cover charge to enter the pop-up beer garden and it’s all-ages friendly, but bring cash (cards are not accepted but there is an ATM across the street). Fresh hop beers will be sold by the pint at only $3 a half pint and $5 for a full pint (tasters are not available).

Food Specials:

  • Pretzel with cheese sauce  $4
  • Potato salad  $4
  • BBQ pulled pork sandwich with slaw  $6
  • House made pickle  $3
  • Bratwurst dog with stout kraut and fried onion  $6
