After serving its final beer nearly three years ago, the Portland Craft Beer Festival (PCBF) returns to Portland’s Pearl District the first three days of July. Now in its sixth year after being sidelined the past two summers, the PCBF will take place from July 1 – 3, 2022 at Fields Neighborhood Park in Portland, Oregon.
This outdoor festival has become a favorite of beer fans here in Portland. The PCBF brings together over 40 local breweries, each pouring a few selections running the gamut of beer styles. Plus, the venue is one that is quite comfortable and easy to get to via public transit or bicycle.
This year’s PCBF features 46 beverage makers serving multiple offerings. Styles include Blonde Ales, Pale Ales, IPAs, including Hazy and Double IPAs, Lagers, Wheat Beers, and Sour Ales. In addition to these beers, there will be ciders, wines, seltzers and cocktails being served all three days.
