Puckerfest 7, a Celebration of Sour & Wild Beers, Starts July 12
PORTLAND, Ore. – Portlanders and visitors alike are practicing their best pucker faces in anticipation of Puckerfest 7 at Belmont Station, the Rose City’s premier beer store and Biercafé.
Now in its seventh year, Puckerfest has established itself as one of the most popular events during Oregon Craft Beer Month. This year, Puckerfest kicks off on Friday, July 12 at noon, and rolls through as many sour and funky beers as possible over the course of the week through July 18.
Adventurous beer lovers can look forward to a rotating cast of up to 20 wild and funky beers on tap daily, along with "Meet the Brewer" nights where brewery friends from around the region join fans and followers in Belmont Station’s Biercafé to share their stories and some extra special beers.
The Biercafé will be open from noon to 11 p.m. every day during the festival in order to accommodate more visitors. Please note that The Italian Market, the awesome new food cart adjacent to Belmont Station, is open Noon to 9 p.m. daily.
