Oregon Brewers Fest
The Oregon Brewers Festival is one of America's longest-running and most beloved craft beer festivals, and takes place every year at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, right on the banks of the Willamette River. Over the course of the weekend, handcrafted beers from more than 80 of the nation's foremost micro-breweries will be turned out to a crowd in excess of 80,000. There will also be live music on the go for all four days of the festival, home-brewing demonstrations, and an assortment of high-quality food stalls dotted around the venue. The best part, is that with the MAX Light Rail system just a stone's throw away, visitors won't even have to drive home when their revelry is concluded.
