2020 NW Coffee Beer Invitational

NW Coffee Beer Invitational Fest

On Saturday, January 25th the 7th annual NW Coffee Beer Invitational Fest returns to Goose Hollow Inn in southwest Portland. The late winter fest is curated by veteran Oregon brewer Dave Fleming with a brewery list that showcases more brewing veterans with some new.

Each of the participating breweries has been tasked with getting creative with their beer and using a locally-roasted coffee. The lineup includes 11 Great American Beer Festival winners and the upcoming Gorges Beer Co.

More from a press release:

The beverages are in competition and a best of show winner and runner-up will be announced at the festival. Fred Bowman (one of the founders of Portland Brewing) and John Foyston (long-time Oregon beer writer) will bring their expert palates to our judging table.

The cozy tent at the Goose Hollow Inn is our venue again, so join us for unique beverages in a “stimulating” atmosphere. Great food from the Goose will be available throughout the event and we will have live music from The How Long Jug Band (12:00-3:00pm) and Lynn Conover with Gravel (3:30-6:30pm).

$25 admission includes a festival glass and 10 taster tickets. Family friendly! No pets please.
Tickets at the door only.
