The Vegan Beer & Food Festival returns to Portland on Saturday, June 11 for the 2nd year. Held at Ziddell Yards in Portland's South Waterfront District, this festival is a showcase for, you guessed it—vegan food and beer.
The festival's organizers are based in Los Angeles and have held similar events in LA for the past six years. However, since Portland is ever so vegan friendly, I expect this festival will generate its own local following. Here's how the event's organizers describe it:
Vegan Beer and Food Festival features the best of the region's craft beer, wine, ciders, kombucha, cold brew and craft sodas on draft. We curate the top vegan food carts, trucks, vendors and restaurants. Our "pop up" marketplace showcases vendors selling everything from clothing to ceramics to craft goods. And, of course, great live music from some of the best talent around.
The Portland event will feature 50 breweries (full list here), that will serve at least two beers. I didn't attend this event last year, but the organizers invited me, so I may check it out. For more details, including ticket packages, please check out the Vegan Beer & Food Festival website.
