PORTLAND, OR - Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) invites brewers to go on nature hikes and create place-based beers inspired by plants found on the trail. Today, BMBW announces an event featuring 5 beers/ciders that were inspired by the trails in Portland’s Forest Park. The beer release party takes place on September 15, from 5pm – 8pm at Bazi Bierbrasserie in SE Portland.

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 of BMBW.

Each brewery is donating the beer for this event and a percentage of the beer sales on September 15 will support the Forest Park Conservancy’s work restoring Forest Park.

Participating breweries include: Base Camp Brewing, Breakside Brewing, Burnside Brewing, Hopworks Urban Brewery, and Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider.
