FUJI TO HOOD Japan/Oregon Collaboration Beer, Cider & Culture Festival Returns to Portland in 2024

The connection between Oregon and Japan runs deep and the craft beer industry is no different. Back in 2018, the inaugural FUJI TO HOOD, an international craft beer, cider, and cultural event was held in Portland, Oregon. After last year’s event in Tokyo, Japan, FUJI TO HOOD returns to Portland, this summer on Saturday, July 20, 2024 to The Redd on Salmon.

Fuji to Hood builds cross-cultural connections and lifelong friendships, while promoting education, shared community, and social interactions through the art of fermentation. The festival takes place every other year in Portland, and in off-years in Tokyo, Japan known as HOOD TO FUJI with brewers making the trek between countries for the occasion.

“We are very proud and honored that Fuji to Hood has grown to become the premier event connecting Oregon and Japan.” said event co-organizer Red Gillen, in a statement.

Taking place at The Redd on Salmon on July 20 from Noon – 8:00pm, FUJI TO HOOD will welcome over 1,000 attendees to experience unique music, performances, visuals, and liquid crafts from Pacific Northwest and Japanese creators. Each beer or cider is a true collaboration, meaning that at least one ingredient from the visiting country must be featured in the process.

Fuji to Hood’s new 501c4 non-profit organizing group ‘Beer Friends’ is pleased to announce the twenty-five brewery and cidery teams collaborating on brand new creations for the largest Fuji to Hood yet.
