Walk and Talk Through Portland’s Beer History
Wednesday, March 20 2:45-5:00 pm
Price: $16 (Participants purchase their own beer)
There’s a reason Portland is called “Beervana,” Portlanders love their beer. With 77 breweries in Portland and 117 in the metro area, the city is a magnet for creative craft brewers and a convergence point for engaged consumers. Led by the director of the Oregon Hops and Brewing Archives, this walking tour will take participants on a journey through the city's beer history. It will focus on Portland's pre and post-Prohibition eras and the evolution from micro to craft. We will also discuss how the beer culture has been shaped by the proximity of a major hop growing region and a university renowned for brewing and agricultural research. We will visit old and new breweries and pause to purchase a pint.
Please gather at the SfAA registration desk at 2:45, tour leaves promptly at 3:00 pm.
Participants should wear walking shoes and be prepared for any weather. Walking distance around 2 miles.
