Ten years ago, Max’s Fanno Creek was looking to create an alternative event to the overcrowded festivals that were focused mainly on well-known beers. With a desire to celebrate the smaller brewers from the region, Nano Beer Fest was born. It gave Nano breweries a much-needed stage to show off their tiny batch beer for the ever-growing craft beer scene in Portland!

Over the years, many breweries have come and gone, and a few have grown their companies from the garage into thriving businesses. As part of the celebration of Nano Brewers and their successes, we’ve added an alumni invitee to the fest starting last year. The 2018 alumni brewer will be Cider Riot! We’ve also added a 3rd day to the fest and Sunday will be an all ages FAMILY DAY.

The 2018 Nano Beer Fest will once again feature 50+ beers, ciders and mead made by some of the most inventive and newest members of the local craft industry! NBF focuses on Nano breweries that can be hard to find around the region all brought together in one place.

Once again most of the brews will be poured by the brewers themselves! We will have knowledgeable floater volunteers from Oregon Brew Crew and PDX Brewers Club to fill in any gaps. The event will be held at John’s Marketplace, one of Portland’s finest beer stores!

Individual participation cost is $20 for a keepsake logo glass and 10 beer tickets. 1 ticket will yield one 2oz pour, 2 tickets a 4oz pour and 3 tickets will get a full pour (7oz). Additional tickets will be available for purchase at $1.00 each.

There are advance ticket packages available through that will get attendees more for their money: $20 for glass, and 15 tickets. Join us to celebrate (and meet) these rising stars!
