Willamette Week is proud to present Portland’s original home brewer and professional brewer collaboration event. Since its start in 2013, when 11 brewer teams competed in the first Pro/Am in an empty warehouse which is now a New Seasons Market, this event has evolved into “the most unique beer festival of the year” that is “unlike other beer fests that feel too big or too generic,” (Brewvana, 2015). This year, under the expansive roof of The North Warehouse, 30 home brewers partner with established pro brewers to create and debut 30 brand new beers with witty names. And for the first time ever, you'll find cider and mead in the running. More than 500 guests taste all the new brews and vote for their favorite, all while enjoying the experience of an intimate but lively event.
