NEW THIS YEAR!
For the first time we are offering a limited number of VIP tickets. If you buy your ticket early through Bold Type Tickets, you can choose to purchase the VIP ticket ($35) and receive an exclusive VIP mug and 15 tickets for larger 6 oz pours. Because availability is limited, VIP tickets may not be available at the door.
BIG – Breweries in the Gorge
As you know Portland has plenty of amazing beer, but nothing is created in a vacuum. There are many celebrated breweries outside the Portland metro area. Starting this year, PCBF will spotlight one region that has inspired, or been inspired by, the Portland craft beer scene. This year we have selected the Breweries in the Gorge – B.I.G. to be our focus for a special tent. Look for beers from Full Sail, pFriem, Double Mountain, Everybody’s Brewing, Backwoods, and Sedition Brewing.
Taplister is sponsoring a digital beer list
In effort to save a tree or two, and provide a more accurate listing of each of the beers, wines, and cider currently pouring, Taplister has partnered with us to provide a digital listing of each of the beverages with tasting notes for easy and quick reference.
Kick off the celebration early! Extended hours on Friday, June 30th
PCBF will now officially open earlier – at noon on Friday.. You can walk in the park and grab your first beer at noon on each of the three days of the festival
