Our Friend Chris Crabb sent over this press release about the
North American Organic Brewers Festival. The event takes place June 29 – July 1 at Overlook Park. Event hours are Noon to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and Noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

This should be a great fest this year – we’ve increased to three trailers, so lines won’t be a problem. Styles run the gamut from Belgian Whites to Cascadian Darks. There’s also live local music, organic food (including ice cream and coffee!), sustainability-oriented vendors and non-profits, a soda garden with complimentary Crater Lake Root Beer for minors and designated drivers, and a children’s area with face painting and activities.  The NAOBF is a family friendly event, and minors are welcome with parents.

Admission into the event is free.  The purchase of a $6 reusable, compostable cornstarch glass is required for tasting beer, as are tokens, which sell for $1 apiece.  A full glass of beer or cider costs four tokens and a four-ounce taste costs one token; select beers cost double tokens. Patrons receive a $1 discount toward the tasting glass with a validated MAX ticket, a ticket from the onsite Hopworks bike corral – last year, nearly 2,000 attendees parked their bikes at the festival – or three cans of food for the Oregon Food Bank (limit one discount per person). The NAOBF benefits the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and the Oregon Food Bank.
