2018 Nano Beer Fest Announced

2018 will mark ten years since the Nano Beer Fest kicked off at Max’s Fanno Creek, back then it was in Tigard and now after new ownership last year the fest returns to John’s marketplace in southwest Portland April 27-29th. This fest that features small and even unknown breweries shines a spotlight on those you may never see on tap or in bottle elsewhere while some may end up being the next big thing.

More from a press release:

Over the years, many breweries have come and gone, and a few have grown their companies from the garage into thriving businesses. As part of the celebration of Nano Brewers and their successes, we’ve added an alumni invitee to the fest starting last year. The 2018 alumni brewer will be Cider Riot!

The 2018 Nano Beer Fest will again feature 50+ beers, ciders and mead made by some of the most inventive and newest members of the local craft industry! NBF focuses on Nano breweries that can be hard to find around the region all brought together in one place.

Once again most of the brews will be poured by the brewers themselves. We will have knowledgeable floater volunteers to fill in any gaps. 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. Join us to celebrate (and meet) these rising stars!
