Handful of tickets remain for the 9th annual Oregon Brewers Brunch at Metalcraft
Order before 5pm on Friday, July 3 to take part in the fun
PORTLAND, Ore. – The 9th annual Oregon Brewers Brunch & Parade is just three weeks away and only a handful of tickets remain. The event, which always takes place on the morning of the festival opening, will occur on Wednesday, July 22 from 9 to 11:30am. Tickets may be purchased through this Friday, July 3 at 5pm at www.oregonbrewfest.com/
This year’s brunch is being hosted by Lompoc Brewing; Lompoc has four locations, but none of them are close to the festival grounds, so the longtime Portland brewery has rented out Metalcraft Fabrication, located at 723 N Tillamook St for the party of 500 craft beer enthusiasts.
Tickets cost $45 which includes brunch, two beers, a T shirt, live music, the OBF tasting glass and four tokens for the festival. This year’s brunch menu includes:
- Fresh seasonal fruit platters
- Variety of sweet and savory breads and baked treats
- Vegetarian breakfast potatoes with Walla Walla onions, red peppers, garlic, grilled zucchini, more
- Fresh scrambled eggs
- Carlton Farms thick cut bacon
- Zenners breakfast sausage braised in New Old Lompoc Seasonal Lager
- Baked salmon with Lompoc Saison hollandaise
- **Vegan Morningstar sausage patties (MUST BE REQUESTED IN ADVANCE)
- Coffee, water and tea
Lompoc will be serving SaazAll Pilsner, Pamplemousse IPA, Proletariat Red, a Sour Fruit Beer, Saison de l’Evolution, Jitterbrew Stout and a Bloody Mary Beer. In the recent Portland Monthly Magazine, Saison de L’Evolution was named as a top 25 beer, and Pamplemousse IPA was named the #1 grapefruit IPA!

Following the brunch, everyone will march from Metalcraft across the Steel Bridge to the festival grounds for the opening ceremonies (1.8 mile route). The parade will be led by Kurt and Rob Widmer, founders of Widmer Brothers Brewing and this year’s honorary Grand Marshals; and accompanied by the Transcendental Brass Band.
Brunch and parade participants with a wristband will flow through the Pine Street entrance and head for the stage for the opening ceremonies. Everyone at the opening ceremonies with a glass gets a glass of the ceremonial keg (no tokens required).
The Oregon Brewers Brunch is for ages 21 and over. All ages are welcome to walk in the parade. For more information, visit www.oregonbrewfest.com.
