We are so excited to announce that Portland has a new beer festival for the calendar! The Pearl District Business Association just announced the debut of Pints in the Pearl –a one day craft beer festival that will showcase some of the best beers the Pearl District breweries have to offer. It will take place on June 4 from Noon to 9 PM at NW 13th and Everett; the street will be closed to vehicles.
“We are so excited to debut this festival in the Pearl District,” exclaimed Carolyn Ciolkosz, director of the Pearl District Business Assn. “Our neighborhood has such a strong history of craft brewing that carries through the present with its award-wining breweries. We are looking forward to bringing them all together to celebrate what makes the Pearl District so special.”
10 Barrel Brewing, BridgePort Brewing, Deschutes Brewery, and Fat Heads Brewery will each host a station serving three different beers, including one that is made exclusively for the event, along with a complimentary food pairing menu. Each station will be manned by brewery staff, which will allow attendees to learn more about the beer from the very people who make and serve it.
In addition to the beer and food tasting, Pints in the Pearl will feature family friendly entertainment, ranging from cornhole to love music by bands including The Weather Machine and local American Idol contestant, Haley Johnson.
Admission for the inaugural event is $20, which includes a limited edition souvenir stainless steel pint and three tokens, valued at $5 apiece. Each token is good for either one 16 oz beer or one food item. Additional tokens may be purchased for $5 apiece. Tickets are available in advance at PintsInThePearl.com or at the door (note: the event will only accept credit and debit cards on-site) and the event is open to all ages.
Pints in the Pearl is presented by the Pearl District Business Association, a non-profit organization with the mission to promote the Pearl District as the region’s premier destination for shopping,
dining, art and living. The event’s goal is to enhance the vitality of business by providing value to its members and to the community. The event is also sponsored by Central Office and Venture Portland.
