PORTLAND, OR - Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) invites brewers to create place-based beers inspired by plants found on nature trails. Today, BMBW announces a beer tapping event featuring 18 beers/ciders that were inspired by the trails in Portland’s Forest Park.

The event takes place on October 10, from 12-5pm, at four different bars in SE Portland - Bazi Bierbrasserie, Belmont Station, Horse Brass Pub, and Likewise.

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. Hikes took place on various trails throughout Forest Park. “Cumulatively, the beers create a drinkable landscape portrait of Forest Park,” says Eric Steen, founder and director of BMBW.

Each brewery is donating the beer for this event and a percentage of the the beer sales on October 10 will support the Forest Park Conservancy’s work restoring Forest Park.

Participating breweries include: 10 Barrel Brewing, Base Camp Brewing, Burnside Brewing, Coalition Brewing, The Commons Brewery, Ecliptic Brewing, Hopworks Urban Brewery, Humble Brewing, Laurelwood Brewing,  Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider, Upright Brewing, and Widmer Brothers Brewing.

Participants can visit any of the four pubs in any order from 12-5pm. For those interested in a scheduled walk between the four venues, a walking party will begin at Belmont Station at noon and end at Bazi Bierbrasserie.

Locations of participating pubs, in order of the walking tour:
Belmont Station - 4500 SE Stark Blvd. Portland
Horse Brass Pub - 4534 SE Belmont St. Portland
Likewise - 3564 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland
Bazi Bierbrasserie - 1522 SE 32nd Ave, Portland
