In recent years breweries of the Pacific NW have helped bring about the resurgence of these beers with traditional methods like using locally grown ingredients that may be found in our farms and fields.Portland’s first ever Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival celebrates U.S. brewers who have embraced the styles of Saison, Biere de Garde and Brettanamyoces inflected beers which vary from light to strong, earthy, spicy, fruity and funky tart.

Held at North Portand’s Saraveza Tavern and neighboring Bad Habit Room on Saturday and Sunday March 30th and 31st the festival will feature more than 20 farmhouse style beers from across the country, many never before available and from both established and new breweries.
