The PORTLAND CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL (PCBF) is an annual opportunity for patrons of legal-drinking age to sample a substantial representation of beers originating from almost every brewery in Portland. Portland, Oregon has more breweries within its city boundaries than any other municipality in the world, with more opening each month. What makes the PCBF unique is the fact that only beers brewed within the city limits of Portland will be featured at the PCBF – this is different from the other beer festivals that occur in the city. Aside from beer, there will be selections of Portland’s crafted ciders and wines, as well as locally operated food vendors and artisans.
The Inaugural PORTLAND CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL drew over 8,000 people in attendance over the three day holiday weekend and was proclaimed by The Oregonian’s beer columnist as “Portland’s Best New Festival”.

Individual participation cost is $25 for a mug/cup with 10 beer tickets. The first 6,000 attendees will receive a souvenir PCBF mug, good for return entry. With some exceptions for special beers or wine, 1 ticket will yield one 4 oz pour and 4 tickets will buy a full pour. Additional tickets will be available for purchase at $1.00 apiece.

In 2016, PCBF will donate 10% of its proceeds to CaskAide, Inc. and its partner charities. CaskAide, Inc. was formed to partner with the Portland Craft Beer Festival with the intent of supporting Portland neighborhood interests through the promotion of local breweries.
