North American Organic Brewers Festival

The world’s largest gathering of organic brewers occurs in just a couple weeks over on the left coast in my favorite city, Portland, OR.

This year’s North American Organic Beer Festival promises to showcase 75 organic beers and lagers plus live music, other sustainability-oriented vendors and plenty of local and organic food. Sounds like heaven to me.

Many of the featured brews will be locally brewed as well, but organic offerings are also arriving from Belgium, Canada, Germany and the UK.

Quoted in the Portland Beer Blog, festival organizer Abram Goldman-Armstrong claims, “Organic beer is the next step in the craft-brewing revolution.”

The event will be held at Portland’s Overlook Park June 27-29. Admission is free, a tasting glass is $5, and 4oz samples of beer are $1. For more information visit www.naobf.org.

    Hi Kristina – I’m afraid you’ll need to contact the organizers directly about volunteering. I just published a blog post about it. Click through to their website for details.
