Inaugural Boring Beer Fest

In the future every community will have a beer fest, stepping up to fill the beer festival hole in the Gresham, Sandy and Boring, Oregon, communities is the inaugural Boring Beer Fest. This new annual event was created to showcase regional brewers and cidermaker of many sizes in the underserved community that many say lives up to its name of Boring. Festival organizers have teamed up with the local Boring Brewing Co. to put together and host this eclectic mix of breweries on August 24-26th, 2018.

More from a press release:

Inspired by the Mt. Hood “Fruit Loop,” as well as the Clackamas County “Tap Trail,” breweries from these areas were the first be invited and represent the bulk of the breweries and cideries being featured. The addition of the “City Slickers” tent will bring some excellent selections from Portland.

The event will be set up in several unique spaces on the Boring Brewing and Winery property, so festival attendees can walk the grounds and enjoy separate areas. There will be live music in the manicured back yard, a water oasis to beat the heat, a covered country patio and several other setups – all with exciting beer options. Regional food as well as vendors and summer yard games will be found throughout the grounds. Boring Brewing has created a flagship beer for the event that will be available as a 16oz option, so music lovers can enjoy a pint in the live music area. Sunday will be family day with special entertainment for the kids!

We are proud to be raising money for two 501(c)(3) non-profits organizations: The Kyla McCullough Gift Fund and the Boring Oregon Foundation
