Now in its fourth year, Portland Craft Beer Festival (PCBF) will return to The Fields Park from July 6 – 8, 2018. As part of the Oregon Craft Beer Month, PCBF is a festival that features many of Portland’s 70+ craft breweries.
The idea behind the Portland Craft Beer Festival is to give patrons the opportunity to sample beers in one location from many of the breweries that call Portland home. Only beers, ciders, meads and wine that are crafted within the city limits of Portland are featured at the PCBF. For 2018 PCBF organizers state that there will be close to 100 different beers from more than 50 breweries.
PCBF also features a special area that highlights breweries from another local region. This year PCBF will pour beers from seven breweries from Central Oregon that includes Boneyard, Cascade Lakes, Crux, GoodLife, Sunriver, Wild Ride, and Worthy Brewing
PCBF features several local food carts, including Urban German, Pig Sauce BBQ, PDX Sliders, and new this year Boke Bowl. There will also be numerous games such as corn hole, pinball, and ping pong, along with booths for local businesses. A children’s market will be set up to start our Family Day on Sunday.
Entry into PCBF is $30 for a mug with 10 beer coupons. Mug and wristband allows entry all weekend. With some exceptions for special beers or wine, 1 ticket will yield one 4 oz pour and 4 tickets will buy a full pour. Additional coupons will be available for purchase at $1.00 apiece. Please note: If admission is purchased in advance, buyers will save $5, plus receive an extra 5 drink coupons. These $25 tickets are now available for purchase through www.PortlandCraftBeerFestival.com or directly through Bold Type Tickets.
As in previous years, PCBF will again donate 10% of its proceeds to CaskAide, Inc. and its partner charities. CaskAide, Inc. was formed to partner with the Portland Craft Beer Festival to support local non-profits through the promotion of local breweries. Starting in 2018, PCBF welcomes new partner Schoolhouse Supplies. The Oregon Brew Crew and Friends of Trees are also partner charities.
