4th Annual SheBrew Beer Festival & Beer List

This Saturday, March 3rd, is the 4th annual SheBrew Beer Festival in Portland, a celebration of female brewers, cider and mead makers and homebrewers for all genders and ages. Held at the Buckman Coffee Factory in southeast Portland, this event features ten local female homebrewers and 20+ female pro brewers of beer cider and mead with all brewing special beverages for the festival.

This fest supports women and female-identified, LGBTQ members of the community with proceeds to go to the Human Rights Campaign and the Oregon Brew Crew. Along with a homebrew competition held a few weeks ago, the SheBrew is a two part event that culminates in the festival this Saturday. This event goes all out with women owned and operated food truck for eats, female musicians and comedians for entertainment and even a local women’s Rugby team working as security for the event.
