The Grass-Roots Organization Celebrates Craft Beer Culture and Pushes New Boundaries
 
This June, the City of Roses is poised to host the 6th Annual Portland Beer Week presented by Portland Brewing Co. The 11-day festival runs from June 9th through the 19th and will feature breweries of every size from all over the nation. Portland Beer Week celebrates the city as a leader and innovative force in the beer world.The festival kicks off with a weekend dedicated to rye and fruit beers, offering a variety of educational seminars and engaging activities. The events aim to inspire the beer & food industry to push boundaries, while providing consumers with new knowledge and entertainment.
 
“Think beer at 360 degrees,” says Ezra Johnson-Greenough — co-founder of Portland Beer Week with Kerry Finsand and the man behind The New School, Portland’s leading voice for anything beer-related. “Alongside fun events open to the public, we have partnered with Oregon State University to offer industry folks a series of seminars, from beer-branding and marketing, to barrel-aging and sour and wild ale. We aim at providing a platform to unleash new ideas and learn from each other.”
 
To celebrate the spirit of cross-pollination between the food and beer worlds, Blue Star Donuts is releasing a special beer donut and Salt & Straw Ice Cream an official beer flavor. Each made with Portland Beer Week’s official beer, a collaboration between Double Mountain Brewing and Portland Brewing. More food, drink, pairing highlights and special collaborations await an exciting and packed 11 days of beer.
Many local businesses came on board to support the festival, among them are Columbia Distributing, Whole Foods, Society Hotel, Travel Portland, Double Mountain, Portland Brewing, Fort George and McMenamins.

About The Author

PR / Marketing Intern

I am a sports fanatic, music lover, outdoor enthusiast and beer advocate born and raised in sunny San Diego, CA. While I am not out exploring San Diego’s craft beer scene, I can be found hanging out at the beach with friends or attending southern California’s many live music events. My passion for craft beer was inherited from my father while home brewing together in their garage. I continued to share his passion for craft beer with friends while attending college in Los Angeles, where I was able to explore the craft beer scene outside of San Diego. In the future, I hope to be involved in Marketing/ Event Planning for the craft beer industry so I can spread my love and passion for beer with the larger San Diego community. I am an avid sports fan and can be seen sharing a pint with other aliens at local Padre and Charger games!
