Portland's Inaugural Lagerfest

Lagerfest 2013


This weekend marks the launch of Portland’s Inaugural Lagerfest in Southeast Portland. Being held Saturday and Sunday on the street in front of White Owl Social Club at SE 8t and SE Main, this first ever Lagerfest will showcase the easy drinking, crisp lagers. Lagerfest takes place August 24th and 25th from 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM.

More than 40 breweries will showcase over 55 of their lagers this weekend.  Each brewery will provide their own sophisticated take on the classic lager beer. “Lagerfest is where cheap beer crushing meets finely crafted brew making. It’s a celebration of the lager–everyone’s very first introduction to beer, the one that takes us all back to our younger days when beer meant something cheap and in a can.”

To make this fest more enticing there will be a few beers making their Portland debut. From Eugene, Hop Valley Brewing is sending up their Experimental Lager and Oakshire Brewing is providing ‘Merica, their take on a domestic lager. Astoria’s Fort George Brewery has a special delivery of Down 5 Lager for this weekends festivities.
