Just when you thought that Portland might have too many beer events a new festival emerges upon the local beer scene later this month. The inaugural Sip of Spring Beer Festival will take place in Portland’s Parkrose Neighborhood at Rossi Farms from April 27-28th.
Organized by the team that produces the popular Holiday Ale Festival, Sip of Spring will bring a craft beer festival to a part of Portland that has not been exposed to such events
“Spring beers are in bloom all over the city,” stated Preston Weesner, event general manager, in a statement. “This festival provides a venue to celebrate by gathering with friends and enjoying a beer outside, on a farm, with a view––because you can!”
Sip of Spring takes place on Friday, April 27th from 1:00-9:00pm and Saturday, April 28th from 11:00am-9:00pm. It will also take place the same weekend as the 2018 Nano Beer Fest.
