Portland, Oregon, is making a run for beer capital of the U.S. The Oregon Brewers Festival, held July 27-31, marks the perfect time to sample more than 80 craft beers from local and nationally known brewers.
Beer lovers, look no further — in Portland, you’ll find 53 breweries (more than any other city on earth), scads of annual beer fests, brew ‘n’ view movie theaters, beer pairings at fine restaurants and tap lists galore. Since the early 1980s, Portland brewers have been hard at work, pioneering the craft beer movement with fresh local ingredients. Along with bustling brewpubs and a calendar overflowing with beer-themed events, their innovative, tasty brews help the city to continually earn its “Beervana” nickname. Beer lovers travel from all over the world to attend this event and join the 70,000 plus attendees that shows up to celebrate tasty beers and great weather.
