Last year the shining star of the new beer festivals was the Portland Craft Beer Festival. Founded by Joseph Sundberg, Christopher Rhodes and Rodney Woodley, the trio set out to host a beer festival that highlighted the abundance of craft beer that is brewed directly here in Portland, Oregon. Now in its second year, the Portland Craft Beer Festival (PCBF) will return to the beautiful setting of The Fields Neighborhood Park in Portland’s Pearl District from Friday, July 1 through Sunday, July 3.

For the second year, PCBF will be pouring over 90 beers and ciders. The Beer Slushie Machine will return for its second year as well. This year the machine will feature Widmer Hefe Shandy. For wine lovers there will wines from Coopers Hall and Clay Pigeon Winery.

With the massive size of The Fields Neighborhood Park there will also be some fun games to keep everyone entertained. This year PCBF has partnered up with Pips & Bounce for a weekend of table tennis. In addition to ping pong there will be corn hole games, hula hoops, and more. On Sunday morning, July 3rd at 11am, join in on some morning yoga an hour before the festival opens.
