Grab your picnic blankets, sand chairs, the kids & the dog and join us for the first annual BrewFest in the Park at Overlook Park! This first year event will serve more than 60 craft beverages, most of which have been organically brewed, including beer, cider and mead. There will also be food carts, vendors, a soda garden for minors and designated drivers, games for adults, and a children’s area with face painting and activities – all taking place in a beautiful park setting.
Packages at the door cost $20 per individual and include the festival cup, 10 drink tickets, a wristband, and free re-entry all weekend (with wristband & cup). Advance packages are on sale now through Bold Type Tickets at http://www.merctickets.com/events/43891630/brew-fest-in-the-park.
Designated drivers may purchase a ticket for $5 at the door, which includes handcrafted Crater Lake Soda and a bottle of water; designated drivers are not allowed to consume any alcohol. Minors under the age of 21 receive free admission, but must be accompanied by a parent. Leashed dogs accompanied by responsible owners are welcome.
Most products cost one ticket for a taste and four tickets for a fill. Select products, including some beers and most meads and ciders, may cost extra tickets. Additional drink tickets are available at the festival for $1 apiece.
The festival encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to take advantage of the MAX Light Rail; the Yellow Line Overlook Park Station is adjacent to the festival. Attendees can also take advantage of the Hopworks Urban Brewery Bike Corral, where volunteers watch over bikes for free. Patrons receive an extra ticket with a validated Tri-Met ticket or a ticket from the Hopworks Bike Corral (one discount per person).
This festival benefits the Timbers Army 107IST (Independent Supporters Trust), whose mission is to support soccer in and around Portland, Oregon, from the grassroots to the highest professional level. The 107IST is a member-based non-profit organization open to anyone who loves soccer, the Timbers/Thorns, and Portland.
