Portland Craft Beer Festival Marks the Beginning of Summer Beer Fest Season

This weekend is one of Portland’s new premier beer festivals. Portland Craft Beer Festival features exclusively Portland breweries, is family-friendly with many activities, and has food and drink options outside of beer, like mead, cider and wine. Friday and Saturday the fest is 21+ from noon to 10pm and Sunday is all-ages friendly and open noon to 7pm at The Fields Neighborhood Park in Northwest Portland’s Pearl District.

The Fields Park is a great location if you enjoy drinking in the center of Portland in a wide grassy field, but we recommend bringing some shades and a hat as it’s going to be bright, sunny, and warm this weekend. PCBF is a fest with something for everyone, breweries you know as well as new and nano breweries you may have not tried and wine and cider for non-beer drinkers. Food options are also pretty numerous: Boke Bowl, PDX Sliders, Urban German Grill, Pig Sauce Co. and Market of Choice.

Relax and instagram in front of Bridgeport Brewing’s rose and hop wall at their Teardrop trailer mini bar.
