22nd Annual Lighthouse Brewfest

It’s a party at the coast! At this summertime, near-the-beach, bring-your-sunblock brewfest, McMenamins & Guest Brewers alike create their own distinct craft beer style while the Lighthouse serves up delicious food specials and brewery tours all day long.

As part of the annual tradition, the brewfest kicks off weeks earlier with the “Vallancing Act” (named for former Lighthouse Brewer Rob Vallance) during which each participating McMenamins Brewer picks a number. Then beer styles are pulled from a Portland Timbers hat to correspond to that number. The brewers are then required to brew an original recipe in that style.

Each participating brewery is also asked to submit a tiny image to represent their particular brew. This collection of “Tiny Brewer Art,” always amusing if not befuddling, is displayed in the festival booklet provided to patrons, along with descriptions of the beers. McMenamins also unveils a new Mighty Beer Atom each year – a mighty beer atom is our in-house graphic symbol or totem, produced by McMenamins staff in varying positions, that represents the creative spirit and energy of brewers and brewing. That is what it started out as and what it remains today.
