Beer lovers rejoice! Zwickelmania returns for its 12th year on Saturday, Feb. 15 in Portland, and statewide on Saturday, Feb. 22.
Zwickelmania is a statewide celebration of the Oregon craft beer scene. More than 100 breweries across the state open their doors for tours, tastings, meet-the-brewer sessions, and, of course, free samples. This free event runs from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. both Saturdays. This year, Zwickelmania will run concurrently with Oregon Craft Beer Month. This month-long celebration will include tap takeovers, beer festivals, panel discussions and more.
