3/23/2016 Portland, OR -
The Portland Fruit Beer Festival will be held at the North Park Blocks in downtown Portland for it's sixth year this June 10-12th, 2016. This major expansion takes the fast-growing festival and increasing popularity of fruit beers to new heights from it's old concrete home to grass, tree's, park benches, sun and shade with more space, more beers and more ciders than ever. Tickets are now on sale for the Portland Fruit Beer Festival with an added 3 ticket bonus to advanced general admission purchases.

In addition to the new location at Portland's centrally located North Park Blocks, the Fruit Beer Festival adds a 3rd full day with bonus tickets to walk-up General Admission attendees arriving before 2:30pm on Friday June 10th. General Admission packages start at $25 for a branded Govino 16oz cup and 12 drink tickets but advanced online ticket holders or those who arrive early Friday receive an extra 3 drink tickets. Beers and ciders will be 4oz pours for 1-3 tickets and additional drink tickets are only $1. 

Burnside Brewing Co. will host the Burnside Can Garden inside the Portland Fruit Beer Festival, and offer $3 an $4 cans of Burnside Couch Lager and Burnside IPA respectively. This special new beer garden offers an alternative to the fruit beers and samples for a full and easily quafable 12oz can of beer.

The Portland Fruit Beer Festival will expand the list of participating breweries and cideries from 27 in 2015 to as many as 35 in 2016. With both more beer and more cideries that offer plenty of gluten-free options. The rare and rotating taps of very limited special kegs will also return.

As usual, the Fruit Beer Fest is ALL-AGES and will have some of the best local food vendors from Hot Lips Pizza to Bunk Sandwiches and more. Music will be provided by some of our best local DJ's and for non-drinkers their will be Hot Lips fruit juices and sodas. Organizers are also excited to announce that the Portland Fruit Beer Festival is now a Rose Festival sanctioned event, also sponsored by the Portland Mercury and Burnside Brewing.
