Organic Craft BrewFest at Overlook Park

  • Overlook Park

Press Release

 

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Organic Craft BrewFest will debut June 23 through June 25 at Overlook Park, 1599 N Fremont St., in Portland. Event hours are Noon to 9pm Friday and Saturday and Noon to 5pm Sunday. The event will present 60 organically brewed craft beverages, including beer, cider and mead, as well as food carts, sustainability-oriented vendors and nonprofits, a soda garden for minors and designated drivers, games for adults, and a children's area with face painting and activities – all in a beautiful park setting.

The Organic Beer Fest focuses on raising awareness about organically brewed beverages and sustainable living. The event serves up 60 organically brewed products, with styles ranging from ciders to cream ales, ambers to lagers, and fruit beers to IPAs. All the products have been brewed using a minimum of 70% organic ingredients, per USDA guidelines.

Advance packages cost $25 per individual and include the festival cup, 15 drink tickets, a wristband, and free re-entry all weekend (with wristband & cup). Packages at the door cost $25 per individual and include the festival cup, 10 drink tickets, a wristband, and free re-entry all weekend (with wristband & cup). Advance packages are on sale now through Bold Type Tickets at http://www.merctickets.com/events/43891630/organic-craft-brewfest.

Designated drivers may purchase a ticket for $5 at the door, which includes handcrafted Crater Lake Soda and a bottle of water; designated drivers are not allowed to consume any alcohol. Minors under the age of 21 receive free admission, but must be accompanied by a parent. Leashed dogs accompanied by responsible owners are welcome.

Most products cost one ticket for a taste and four tickets for a fill. Select products, including some beers and most meads and ciders, may cost extra tickets. Additional drink tickets are available at the festival for $1 apiece.

The festival encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to take advantage of the MAX Light Rail; the Yellow Line Overlook Park Station is adjacent to the festival. Attendees can also take advantage of the Hopworks Urban Brewery Bike Corral, where volunteers watch over bikes for free. Patrons receive an extra ticket with a validated Tri-Met ticket or a ticket from the Hopworks Bike Corral (one discount per person).

The goal of the Organic Craft BrewFest is to promote and celebrate the spirit of organic brewing. In the United States, an organic product is considered truly organic when the product bears the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s official USDA Certified Organic seal; has been certified organic by an accredited organic certifying agency; and contains 95% or more organic ingredients. Products can also be made with organic ingredients, meaning the product contains at least 70% organic ingredients, excluding added water and salt. Organizations that sell less than $5,000 worth of organic products annually are not required to get certification; many of the products at this festival fall into this category.

The Organic Craft BrewFest benefits the Timbers Army 107IST (Independent Supporters Trust), whose mission is to support soccer in and around Portland, from the grassroots to the highest professional level. The 107IST is a member-based non-profit organization open to anyone who loves soccer, the Timbers/Thorns, and Portland.

About Bigfoot Mojo

Upright bassist Belinda Underwood and national mandolin champion Josiah Payne met on the bluegrass scene in Portland, Oregon, as hired hands in other award-winning bands. Musicians in multiple genres since childhood, they both grew up in family bands before moving to Oregon, and were feeling orphaned without their families until they found each other in 2012. After playing together for 3 years as "Josiah and Belinda", they adoped the mascot of the Northwest when they became Bigfoot Mojo.

Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, they have many creative offerings, including this new incarnation. Josiah and Belinda continue to mesmerize audiences with groove-based melodies and impeccable vocal harmonies (the kind that sound genetically-blended), setting a new standard for original music which defies genre boundaries.

Bigfoot Mojo plays with other amazing guest musicians to create a trio, quartet or bigger. Lately they have been featuring world-traveling guitarist Pete Kartsounes, when he is home from tour! Also featured is the young national twin fiddle champion Wilhelmina.

Josiah and Belinda also play together in the high-energy bluegrass band The Wild Wood and in their Middle Eastern funk band, Al Farasha.

Press Release

Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) and GloryBee have teamed up for the release of Bee Here Now Belgian Golden Strong Ale in celebration of Pollination Week. The beer is available on draft and in very limited bottles beginning on June 21 at all three HUB locations.

Bee Here Now is a Belgian-Style beer made entirely with organic ingredients, including malted wheat, rye, and GloryBee clover honey. Organic red clover blossoms were added in the hop back instead of hops, giving the beer a complex floral aroma and flavor. At 9.5% abv, it’s warming on the back end as the honey rounds off the palate.

Join GloryBee and HUB on June 21 to celebrate pollinator pathways at HUB’s SE Portland brewpub. That day HUB will donate $1 from every glass of Bee Here Now to SAVE the BEE, an organization that works to expand research to improve honeybee health and nutrition in addition to combating colony collapse disorder. HUB will have a honey based food special and at 6pm there will be a toast and GloryBee will give away a gift basket.

Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore. (May 23)- From Fort George to Worthy and on to Gigantic, the Cosmic Collaboration Series from Ecliptic Brewing has most recently been Oregon brewery focused.  This time around however, Ecliptic looked out east for their next collaboration partner.  Melvin Brewing from Alpine, WY traveled to Portland to create a beer that defies all explanations.  The Cosmic Collaboration is playfully named, Space Ghost Golden Session Barleywine and takes inspiration from Melvin’s illustrious Imperial IPA’s.

“When Jeremy Tofte (Co-Founder/Field Hoperative at Melvin Brewing) and I first talked about this beer he wanted to make a barleywine,” said Owner and Brewmaster of Ecliptic Brewing, John Harris.  “I thought a barleywine in the summer? No way! That’s when the idea for a golden session barleywine was born.” said Harris.

Ecliptic+Melvin Space Ghost Golden Session Barleywine

Session Barleywine?! What cosmic sorcery!

An unclassifiable phantasm, Space Ghost explodes with a panopoly of Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy, Southern Cross tropical hop flavors with a taste not unlike Melvin’s famous Imperial IPAs.  Complex yet infinitely drinkable, Space Ghost defies all explanations.   ABV 8%  IBU 75

PORTLAND, Ore – Cascade Brewing will release its Manhattan NW 2015 project today at 12pm PDT; and on June 13, it will release Crazy Navel 2016. Both projects will be available in bottle and draft at its two pubs – Cascade Brewing Barrel House and Raccoon Lodge – and through its distribution channels.

Manhattan NW is a blend of sour quad and blond ales aged in bourbon barrels with sour pie cherries and apricot noyaux. A tribute to the classic Manhattan cocktail, this unique sour beer interpretation features flavors of bourbon, maraschino cherries, bitter almond and rich malt backbone (10.3% ABV).

Crazy Navel 2016 is a blend of sour wheat and blond ales aged in oak wine barrels for 14 months with fresh orange zest. Using both Cara Cara and Heirloom varietals, Crazy Navel captures the essence of the navel orange balanced with a refreshingly tart and dry base beer (7.6% ABV).

 

“Manhattan NW has long been one of our most popular releases and is one of highest rated beers in our portfolio,” explained Tim Larrance, vice president of sales and marketing. “We’re also excited about our long awaited new orange project, Crazy Navel, and are confident it will be a summer hit.”

 

Manhattan NW is a tier three offering, while Crazy Navel is a tier one. The new bottles have distinct label styles for each of the three Cascade Brewing pricing tiers, with each label within the tier utilizing distinctive colors to clearly differentiate each beer. The tiers differ by the style of beer used in the product, the type ingredients contained within, the time aged in the barrels and types of barrels used.
