Beers Made By Walking Event - October 10, 2015


This weekend, Beers Made By Walking and the Forest Park Conservancy are serving up a series of place-based beers and cider that are inspired by the trails of Portland’s Forest Park. The tapping takes place at four different bars in SE Portland on October 10, from 12-5pm. Proceeds from the beer are donated to Forest Conservancy.

The featured beers come directly from a collaboration with the Forest Park Conservancy, which sent experts to lead monthly public hikes with brewers in Forest Park. Each brewer was challenged to make beer inspired by the plants from the trail. The beers/cider you will taste on October 10 include ingredients such as licorice fern, dandelion, cedar, wild berries, Oregon grape (the stout flower), grand fir, and much more.

Here is a list of beers and their respective bars for the event this Saturday. Additional information about the event, including information about an optional walking tour between pubs is available here.
