Brewing Bridges Collaboration Festival Caps North Bank Beer Week

North Bank Beer Week is on the horizon and arguably it’s premiere event will be the 2nd annual Brewing Bridges Oregon/SW Washington collaboration beer festival. More than twenty Southwest Washington breweries have collaborated with Portland-area counterparts for this event held at the Pearson Airport Museum on Sept 14th, 2019 from 3-8p.m.

Brewing Bridges closes out North Bank Beer Week, a celebration of the breweries at Southwest Washington from the mouth of the Columbia, Goldendale, Vancouver up to the base of Mt. St. Helens.

Local food trucks and Corn Hole (tournament play, possible if enough interest) will figure into the nights eats and entertainment.

“The event is intentionally timed to include the sunset as it passes over Fort Vancouver and the I-5 bridge.” Said Mike DiFabio, owner of Fortside Brewing Company and a member of the Northbank Beer Alliance.

Brewing Bridges is made possible thanks to the generosity of Columbia Bank. With views of the reserve, Officers row and the historic Fort Vancouver.

The event is $49 and limited to 600 attendees – unlike many festivals, there are no tokens and nothing more to purchase except food. A keepsake glass and a wristband is your ticket to experience, enjoy and taste as many collaboration beer as you’d like from 3-8 p.m. (Alcohol monitors and security reserve the right to cut off anyone who appears intoxicated).

Tickets can be purchased at the door or at
