PORTLAND, Ore. (Jan. 9, 2015) — Zwickelmania, the annual one-day event in Oregon when breweries open their doors to the casual and hardcore beer fans, lands on Feb. 14 this year — Valentine’s Day — from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. More than 100 breweries, both big and small, are participating with meet-the-brewer events and beer samples.
For those who are planning a special Valentine’s Day trip to a place in Oregon, visitors are invited to click on one of the seven regions of Oregon on the Zwickelmania event page
to see which breweries are participating, itineraries and maps available for the Bend, Eugene, Portland, Salem and Southern Oregon areas.Oregon Brewers Guild executive director Brian Butenschoen says, “With more than 100 breweries open across nearly 30 cities, there are many options in Oregon perfect for a romantic beery weekend getaway, whether you head to a city with a robust concentration of breweries or to a town with just one.”
Last year, more than 36,750 people toured 105 participating breweries statewide and the Oregon Brewers Guild is expecting that number to increase in 2015 with Valentine’s Day starting off what will be a three-day Presidents’ Day weekend.
