NAOBF 2015 Details and Beer List



The 11th Annual North American Organic Brewers Festival starts on Thursday, August 13th and runs through Sunday, August 16th. Once again, the fest will be held at beautiful Overlook Park.

This is one of my favorite Portland beer festivals. The vibe is always laid back--more family-oriented than the bros chugging brews atmosphere that you find at some other events. The focus of this fest is organic brewing and sustainability, and the Portland brewers involved don't just talk the talk. they walk the walk...or they brew the brew. You know what I mean.

There is no parking at Overlook Park. Since I live in a neighborhood that is often slammed by street fair traffic, I recommend you give the folks who live in the Overlook area a break and take public transportation to NAOBF. The MAX stops RIGHT IN FRONT of the park. Seriously, the station is mere steps from the entrance. Get yourself an all-day Tri-Met pass for $5 and leave the driving to them. Better yet, ride your bike! Hopworks will be setting up a safe and secure bike corral for the event again this year.

Times
Noon to 9pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday; noon to 5pm Sunday.

Admission
Admission into the event is free. The purchase of a $7 reusable, compostable cornstarch cup is required for tasting beer, as are tokens, which sell for $1 each. A full cup of beer costs four tokens and a four ounce taste costs one token (select beers cost double tokens). Patrons receive an extra token with a validated Tri-Met ticket or a ticket from the Hopworks Bike Corral (limit one extra per person).

The event is cash only. ATMs will be on site, but you know how that goes--possible lines and a hefty service fee. Best to bring a pocket full of cash.

Here's what you've been waiting for...THE BEER LIST!
