Beers Made By Walking Announces Its 2017 Portland Hikes

Wildwood Trail in Portland’s Forest Park during Beers Made By Walking.

Since 2011, Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) has been hosting hikes to get both brewers and beer fans outside on hike to discover nature. It’s on these hikes that brewers talk about native plants that can be used in the process of brewing beer or fermenting cider. During this time BMBW has worked with over 100 breweries throughout the country to create over 200 place-based beers.

For its sixth year, BMBW will return to the Rose City’s beautiful Forest Park. This series of public hikes brings brewers and cider makers on various hikes throughout Forest Park. BMBW invites brewers to go on nature hikes and make beer inspired by plants found on the trail.

Once again the Forest Park Conservancy will organize this season’s hikes. Each hike is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required. Hikes for the 2017 BMBW season will include Hopworks Urban Brewery, Base Camp Brewing, Lucky Lab Brewing, Breakside Brewery, Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider, and PINTS Brewing.
