September - November Northwest Beer Festival Calendar

Summer's over, but fall might just be the best time of year for beer in the Northwest! If you scan through the schedule below, you'll see plenty of Oktoberfest and Fresh Hop beer events. Fresh (or Wet) Hop beers are made from hops that have not yet been kiln dried. To ensure maximum freshness, these hops are rushed to the brewery and typically used within hours of being harvested at the farm. If you've never experienced a Fresh Hop beer, now's the time to taste one!

This is by no means a comprehensive list. If I'm missing anything (I'm focusing on annual, not one-time-only events), please send me the event details at and I'll be happy to add it.  That said, here's a look at the upcoming festivals during the months of September - November.
