Portland Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest

Portland Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest

Portland’s Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest is expanding to two weeks/10 days for the 2018 hop harvest season. Already the areas first large fresh hop event, the Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest is now arguably it’s freshest.

Presented by Portland Beer Week and Burnside Brewing Co. the Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest takes place Wednesday through Sunday for two weeks: September 12-16 and 19-23rd, as a temporary covered outdoor beer garden featuring ten rotating taps of 100% fresh hop beer, an outdoor fire pit, boombox and Oktoberfest-style food specials with no cover charge and $5 beers with $3 half pours with $13 growler fills to-go on Sundays.

In order to best showcase the green, oily, lupulin-filled fresh hop beers that are only made once a season and unique to the pacific northwest, the Fresh Hop Pop-Up takes place early as the beers are first being released. Fresh Hop beers are best served fresh like their namesake and that makes the Fresh Hop Pop-Up the best place to try them.

Featuring daily tappings and special featured brewer nights, the 2018 Fresh Hop Pop-Up Beer Fest may have the best lineup in town for hop fans. Taplists/beers are subject to change due to the last minute nature of the beers being ready.
