“This is the most fun you’re going to have at a beer awards ceremony anywhere in the world,” said Ezra Johnson-Greenough, founder of The New School and Portland Beer Week, “It’s like attending the Academy Awards only with much better beer.”
Winners will be announced during the ceremony on Tuesday, February 28, at Revolution Hall (1300 SE Stark Street, Portland). The 2017 OBA Hall of Fame induction by JVNW will also take place. In addition to 22 judged beer style categories, awards will also be given for Best New Brewery, Best Beer Bar/Bottle Shop, Best Brewpub Experience, Best Beer Festival, Brewery of the Year – Small, Medium and Large.
Each category will be presented by an industry supporter, who will send a representative to the stage to open the envelope.
