June 28-30, 2019 at the North Park Blocks in The Pearl: We know that Portlanders cherish their craft beers, so on a hot, sunny day in June, why not get them all in one place? Portland’s International Beer Festival is a 3-day specialty beer festival showcasing hard-to-find beers and ciders from all over the world. Sample everything from classic styles (pilsners, pales, etc.) to exotic new-world hybrids (barrel-aged hoppy farmhouse sours, etc.), but make sure you call an Uber or Lyft (or *gasp* call an actual taxi) to take you wherever you want to go… You get a pretty big bang for your buck when it comes to these tastings!
