PDX Beer Week Returns Today Through June 19

2016 PDX Beer Week

Tonight is the official launch of the 6th Annual PDX Beer Week with its Rooftop Kickoff Party on the beautiful rooftop of the Ecotrust Building located at 721 NW 9th Avenue in Portland’s Pearl District. The free, all ages event will take place from 6:00 to 10:00pm.

At tonight’s Rooftop Kickoff Party expect to see the official launch of the PDX Beer Week beer, Subcontinental IPA from this year’s brewery sponsor, Portland Brewing and its collaboration partner, Double Mountain Brewery. There will also be beers from Deschutes Brewery, Breakside Brewery, Hopworks Urban Brewery, Hop Valley Brewing, and Double Mountain Brewery. Entry is free but the purchase of a $1.00 plastic cup is required to drink. Beer tickets are $2.50 each for an 8 oz. pour or two tickets for a full pint. Just make sure to bring cash, as this will be the only accepted form of payment. All profits from the 2016 Rooftop Kickoff Party go to benefit the local non-profit New Avenues for Youth.
