Farmhouse & Wild Ale FestivalThe last weekend in March marks the first ever Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival in Portland, OR. Held at Saraveza and its adjacent event space, The Bad Habit Room, the event will feature more than 30 rare Farmhouse and Wild Ales, many which have never been available before.

Farmhouse-style beers have seen a resurgence in the Pacific Northwest by brewers who are embracing styles that include Saison, Biere de Garde and Brettanomyoces-infected beers. The beers originated in farming regions of France and Belgium, utilizing locally grown ingredients and vary widely in flavor from earthy to spicy to fruity and funky tart.

The two-day festival, curated by Ezra Johnson-Greenough, will include rare kegs, vintage beers, exclusive one-off kegs and beers that are not usually available in Oregon. There will be indoor and outdoor seating, Saraveza’s full menu and a special snack menu.

Tickets will be available at the door (cash only) however advance purchase is recommended. Drink tickets are good for a 4-oz beer sample of many beers; some beers will cost two tickets per sample.
