Portland’s 2011 Fresh Hop Tastival takes place at Oaks Amusement Park (7805 SE Oaks Park Way) this Saturday, October 8 from noon until 8pm.
Hop heads will be in heaven – this fest features dozens of delicious locally brewed beers spiced up with freshly picked hops (scroll down on this page for the full beer list).
Admission to the Tastival is free, but to taste you’ll need a tasting glass. Prices (cash only!) start at $10 for a glass and 2 drink tickets, with additional tasters at $1 a pop. Kids are welcome, and courtesy of Portland’s U-Brew & Pub, they’ll be getting hopped up on free root beer!
In addition to sampling a huge variety of fantastic beers in a beautiful setting, attendees can take in a homebrewing demonstration, and enjoy music DJed by Hollowdog and Sexxon Valdez.
