From our sponsors at PFBF:
PDX Fruit Beer FestivalPortland Fruit Beer Festival
Saturday, June 11 – Sunday, June 12
11-9 p.m. | FREE| All Ages

Burnside Brewing
7th & East Burnside Street
burnsidebrewco.com

A new kind of beer festival kicks off this June outside of one of Portland’s newest breweries, Burnside Brewing. Fruit beers are the red-headed stepchild of craft beer, often overlooked by beer lovers because of preconceptions that they are sweet, boring, or artificially flavored. The first annual Portland Fruit Beer Festival aims to change all that and open minds to the strange and exotic possibilities that fruit beers can offer.

Featuring more than 20 different beers from over 15 breweries from the Northwest and beyond, the Portland Fruit Beer Festival is a celebration of the wonderful variety that fruits offer and the incredible and unique beers brewers can make with them. The PFBF will take place June 11th and 12th (Friday and Saturday) in the parking lot of Burnside Brewing.

The festival welcomes all ages with free entry, and the Burnside Brewing pub will also be open for regular business, offering dinner and overflow seating from the fest. 15 beers will pour outdoors in the partially covered parking lot. A special few taps will be offered next door in the brewery’s production space, featuring extremely rare rotating beers that have very limited availability.

Tasting glasses are available for $6 and are required to sample beers at the festival. Tickets are $1 each. A 4oz pour requires 1 ticket, with pints available for 4 tickets on the primary 14-15 beers. The rare rotating taps will range from 1-3 tickets a 4 oz pour. Food options include Tastebud’s mobile wood-fired oven and Burnside’s own outdoor BBQ, and there will be juice and soda for those not partaking in beer and live entertainment.

    Yum, sounds delicious! I’d love to attend this kick off event and support the new festival.

  2. amy May 29, 2011 at 14:57 #

    Pick me! I am a redhead, so those “redheaded stepchild” beers are a match made in heaven!

  3. Travis May 29, 2011 at 15:04 #

    I would love to go because it would be my first beer festival!!

  4. eileen May 29, 2011 at 15:17 #

    I would like to attend the festival because I have never had a fruit beer and what better way to try some at the Beer Fruit Festival!

  5. Ben Einhorn May 29, 2011 at 15:20 #

    never has there been a better gift to fruit…and beer!

  6. Gwyn May 29, 2011 at 15:34 #

    I love fruit beer! And I love free things. Win win.

  7. kathryn May 29, 2011 at 15:44 #

    I love fruit beers! Pick me!

  8. Anthony May 29, 2011 at 15:47 #

    because it sounds delicious and i’ve never had a fruity beer before!

  9. Greg May 29, 2011 at 15:52 #

    I love beer and I love free, combining the two just seems like a natural synthesis from Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

  10. Kris May 29, 2011 at 16:15 #

    I love craft beer, including fruit beers and being a red-head, it seems only appropriate I should attend since, ” Fruit beers are the red-headed stepchild of craft beer.”

  11. JOSH May 29, 2011 at 16:18 #

    I am the most deserving. I mean, I was BORN for beer festivals!! I love beer and would love nothing more than to be able to share a day of beer festin’ with someone special…..

  12. Nikki hansell May 29, 2011 at 16:22 #

    Red headed step child of beer. Sounds like my kind of peeps

  13. Joe M. May 29, 2011 at 16:54 #

    I would love to attend the first ever fruit beer fest! The fruit beer is what got me to love beer in the first place :).

  14. Julie May 29, 2011 at 17:02 #

    I MUST win these tickets to prove to my boyfriend (and therefore the naysaying society as a whole!) that “fruit beer” is delicious, and not too sweet like so many believe… Help me, please! I’m just one girl, trying to break down a stereotype…

  15. Marcy May 29, 2011 at 17:18 #

    I would be ecstatic to win this package and experience my first beer festival ever!!!!

  16. naomi May 29, 2011 at 17:45 #

    Fruit+beer is a great combination! Pick me please!

  17. Mar!o May 29, 2011 at 20:00 #

    Originally from Belgium, I need to find out what they are capable of brewing. Fruity beers are famous back home, especially cherry-based Kriek. I gotto go …. :-)

  18. Lisa May 29, 2011 at 20:56 #

    Seeing this ad made my mouth water. I thirst for fruit beer. Oh, don’t you tease me. Give me a taste of your lucious raspberries, your pleasant peaches, your delectable cherries…. I can’t wait to consume you.

  19. Nicole May 29, 2011 at 21:56 #

    Love this! I want to go!

  20. Anna May 29, 2011 at 23:20 #

    The beer selection sounds great, I must be there! Free tickets would make it even more awesome!

  21. StJason May 29, 2011 at 23:22 #

    You know what is boring? The northwest’s obsession with hoppy beers. Don’t get me wrong, people like them, but every single bar has two or three (or thirty) on tap. IPA, Imperial IPA, Double IPA, Triple IPA, Quintuple IPA, CDA, Fresh Hopped… The genre is done. It’s nice to explore new things. Personally, I am looking forward to exploring Burnside’s Gooseberry Berliner-Weisse, Fort George’s Cherry Stout and Upright’s Orange Wit.

  22. Mandi May 30, 2011 at 09:12 #

    I love beer. And I love a well crafted beer with depth and more complicated flavor then hops alone. I will probably be going to this anyway because this sounds like an incredible event but being able to go for free would be really amazing! You should pick me.

  23. Luke May 30, 2011 at 10:59 #

    I was planning on going berry picking that weekend, followed by some nice cold beer. But then I saw this event. Two birds. One stone.

  24. Mia Smith Baldwin May 30, 2011 at 11:34 #

    This sounds wonderful, and I would LOVE to win tickets!

  25. nicolle May 30, 2011 at 11:49 #

    I would like to attend because I love fruit beers!

  26. Jana May 30, 2011 at 11:57 #

    One day I will live in a world where my delicious, flavorful, and equally thrilling fruit beer is not mocked. I will proudly order a raspberry or blueberry or even mango beer without scorn and rebuke. I applaud you early leaders, you festival entrepreneurs, you heros. Thank you from all of us silent admirers. (slow clap, of course)

  27. Kelly May 30, 2011 at 12:03 #

    Planning to attend regardless. I love a beer festival!

  28. Patrick May 30, 2011 at 12:06 #

    Really looking forward this Fest, the lineup looks amazing!

  29. Patrick May 30, 2011 at 12:10 #

    I’ve been promoting this event to friends and on my Twitter and Facebook, and will be entering a fantastic brew in the homebrew competition. Pick me, and I will continue to help promote the event like crazy.

  30. Kaitlin Cobb May 30, 2011 at 12:14 #

    Fruit beers are my passion, I love finding and trying new types and the fruit beer festival sounds like a dream come true! The festival also happens to be the weekend of my 23rd birthday as well :) I think its fate

  31. Jeannine M. May 30, 2011 at 12:17 #

    I LOVE fruit beers AND brewfests! This is clearly a match made in heaven. <3

  32. Nate gibson May 30, 2011 at 12:24 #

    Pick me! I’m old enough to legally drink and I love Flemish sour ales and any fruit beers!

  33. Brian May 30, 2011 at 12:44 #

    My mother-in-law is coming in to town that weekend and I need an excuse to get out of the house for a bit. This is perfect!

  34. Angie May 30, 2011 at 12:52 #

    This would be great. I found that festival a few weeks ago and thought it would be super fun.

  35. Nick May 30, 2011 at 13:04 #

    This sounds way more fun than being productive!

  36. karen May 30, 2011 at 13:24 #

    Would love to win, huge fruit beer and craft beer fan and it’s my first beer festival since moving to Portland in January! The fact that Portland has so many microbrew pubs is one of the reasons why moving to Portland was SUCH a great thing to do!

  37. Kori May 30, 2011 at 13:29 #

    Would love to win this so my husband and I could go out for a date night to it:)

  38. Michael May 30, 2011 at 13:35 #

    Super excited for this festival. Thanks for the chance!

  39. Joe May 30, 2011 at 13:42 #

    Big Beer Festival Fan. My wife and I our expecting our first child in early July. So this will likely be my last of the year. Really want to make sure I attend.

  40. JK May 30, 2011 at 13:53 #

    Every night with the lights out, where you gone?
    What’s wrong?
    Everytime you can try but can’t turn on
    Your rock song

    Got some if you need it

  41. philip May 30, 2011 at 13:56 #

    Fruit beer is good for you

  42. pseudoluke May 30, 2011 at 14:01 #

    I, for one, am sick of pretending that fruit beers are somehow “inferior” to other ales. Although I am guilty of occasionally referring to them as “bitch beers,” in my heart I long to pour that fruity beverage in and around my mouth. I’m ready to come out of the non-gay closet and declare myself a fruit!

  43. Michael May 30, 2011 at 14:52 #

    I have been trying fruit beers lately, and they are not what I thought they were.

  44. TiparilloPDX May 30, 2011 at 15:00 #

    Trying to talk my wife into this festival – this would seal the deal!!

  45. Jay May 30, 2011 at 15:10 #

    I will be coming from SLC, Utah and my son will be coming from NYC to visit my daughter, a newly minted Portlander with a passion. Would be a god to them if I won drink tickets.

  46. Chicadilly May 30, 2011 at 15:11 #

    I can’t wait! The beer list looks soooo delicious! It’s going to be a blast!! :)

  47. Lisa May 30, 2011 at 15:33 #

    This would be a perfect gift for my hubby’s birthday on the 14th! please pick me! :)

  48. Big Fruit May 30, 2011 at 16:29 #

    Give me those free tickets or else I’ll wear my fruit beer inspired banana hammock! Seriously though, this is the most exciting beer fest of the year. From top to bottom the taplist is inspired and unique. I’ll be there regardless swilling some Berliner Weisse and Gose. See everyone else!

  49. Kellie May 30, 2011 at 17:27 #

    I have been waiting for this festival. We have been to most of the big ones around Portland, but they are so heavy on IPA or types of beer we are just not as thrilled with. I am very excited about a beer festival that blends great beer with great fruit. We have this on the calendar and are anxiously awaiting and welcome something with such a great option for variety and all types of beer being represented within the fruit category!

  50. Jacque May 30, 2011 at 17:43 #

    beer is the only one for me, no other drink can take its place

  51. Jordan May 30, 2011 at 17:47 #

    I Love beer.

  52. da May 30, 2011 at 18:23 #

    Sweet!

  53. Theo May 30, 2011 at 20:24 #

    I would like to attend because I love beer and I love fruit

  54. Tara May 30, 2011 at 21:28 #

    Why I need to go: All of my favorite brewers will be there, fruit berliner-wiesse, I don’t have any disposable income so this would be a huge boon to me, and I’ve been excited about this festival since it was first announced (even before the beer list came out!).

  55. Co May 30, 2011 at 23:47 #

    Super excited dor this festival.

  56. Eric May 31, 2011 at 00:50 #

    Sign me up

  57. zee May 31, 2011 at 02:38 #

    Thanks
    Zee

  58. Kyle May 31, 2011 at 09:50 #

    I would like to go because i have never had a fruit beer before!

  59. Kristin May 31, 2011 at 10:22 #

    Fruit beer is my all time favorite!! It would be nice to try something other than the usual apricot and raspberry. Would love to win tickets to this event!!!! Thanks for considering me!

  60. Ryan May 31, 2011 at 11:41 #

    I hate fruit beers… Show me there’s something better out there than 21st ammendments Watermelon Wheat or Maui’s Coconut Porter

  61. April May 31, 2011 at 12:20 #

    I want to have fun!

  62. Stan May 31, 2011 at 13:09 #

    Pick me! I’m a home brewer and a beer aficionado. I’d love to see what the pros can do with fruit and beer.

  63. Maggie May 31, 2011 at 14:12 #

    Looking forward to tasting and learning about how our talented pros incorporate popular as well as more innovative fruit ingredients into their brews. Hopefully the offerings at PFBF will be a far cry from the many mass market beers that taste like artificial fruit flavoring was added during bottling.

  64. Maddy May 31, 2011 at 19:25 #

    Fruit+Beer=Liquid Ambrosia

  65. JennyK May 31, 2011 at 19:32 #

    I love fruit and lambic beers and definitely plan on going to the Fruit Beer Festival! Please pick me for the hook up!

  66. Eric V May 31, 2011 at 20:10 #

    My girlfriend and I are always up for trying new and interesting beers.

  67. April May 31, 2011 at 20:49 #

    I love lambic.

  68. Sarah May 31, 2011 at 20:54 #

    So recently, Whole Foods had a “Pint for Pint” promotion. Donate a Pint of Blood.. get a Pint of.. Berries.

    I was kind of hoping for beer. Berry beer, even. Can you fix this?

  69. Portlandier May 31, 2011 at 21:07 #

    Portland, Beer, and Fruits
    I’m sure there are some great ‘Keep Portland Weird’ references here but let’s just cut to the chase and host this at a stripclub with a marquee reading “Fred Armisen, film Portlandia season 2 here”

  70. Erin V May 31, 2011 at 21:12 #

    Sounds delicious and delightful! And a perfect way to kick off the end of the school year. I’m in. :)

  71. Darcy B May 31, 2011 at 21:21 #

    Yes please—sounds like fun! Berry beer sounds lovely!

  72. allisen May 31, 2011 at 21:22 #

    I love fruit beer! So glad it is finally getting some recognition. Can’t wait for the festival!

  73. Tyson C. May 31, 2011 at 23:46 #

    The beer line up and the breweries included sound amazing. Can’t wait to attend and to get the package would be incredible!

  74. lao-ocean May 31, 2011 at 23:52 #

    Fruit beer?!? Count me in!

  75. Liz June 1, 2011 at 12:34 #

    Good beer is my love. I want this package.

  76. Pam June 1, 2011 at 12:36 #

    I love fruit beers (second only to my love of ciders). This is a fest that I can enjoy with my husband. I would truly enjoy the package.

  77. Katherine June 1, 2011 at 14:34 #

    Because it’s better than putting a lemon in my hefe and calling it fruit beer. =)

  78. Rain Madrone June 1, 2011 at 14:37 #

    I, for one, have never looked down on fruit beers, and going to this festival would be an opportunity to further explore their wonders!

  79. Emma June 1, 2011 at 14:52 #

    I would like to go so my love for fruit beers can come out of the closet!

  80. Morgan June 1, 2011 at 14:52 #

  85. Bob June 1, 2011 at 16:03 #

    This’ll be a lot tastier than the festival of meat beers I went to last weekend.

  86. Kenny Schmidt June 1, 2011 at 17:18 #

    This sounds so great. I think this beer fest will do great things for fruit beer in the region & will be here for years to come. I MUST GO!

  96. Barbara June 2, 2011 at 12:03 #

  97. Erika June 2, 2011 at 12:47 #

  113. Sara June 2, 2011 at 15:57 #

    We regularly take our friends out to different breweries around Portland and we have yet to go to this one! It is actually pretty close to our house, and this would be an excellent way for us to be introduced to a new hang out spot! ALSO, my birthday is on the 3rd and this would be an awesome birthday gift that I would always remember :)

  114. Josh C. June 2, 2011 at 15:59 #

    Free Radicals are a bitch. Alcohol releases the antioxidants trapped in fruit. Why brew beer with fruit? ‘Cause its smart, haters. Can I represent?

  134. Sally June 2, 2011 at 19:22 #

  135. Brandy June 2, 2011 at 19:34 #

    I am just passing through for the summer on my way from Boston to LA and this would be a VERY cool Portland thing to do and tell all my friends in both cities about! :)

  136. james June 2, 2011 at 19:37 #

    hats off to the madmen brewers who bring the produce section to their craft. I … must … worship … at their altar.

  137. Lindsay June 2, 2011 at 20:30 #

    I would like to WIN because I’ve never been to the fruit beer festival and it sounds like a fun time! It would be AMAZING to get the opportunity to go.

    Pick me…and thank you for the chance!

  145. Josh June 3, 2011 at 01:41 #

    blueberries, watermelon, rasberry, orange…do they allow mixes of all the beers together?

  146. Tina June 3, 2011 at 03:02 #

    I’d like to attend because fruit beer sounds delicious!

  147. Ian June 3, 2011 at 06:55 #

    I want to get my 5 daily servings of fruit in beer form

  148. Marty June 3, 2011 at 08:08 #

    Help me promote scury with fruit in my drinks!

  149. Atha June 3, 2011 at 08:59 #

    Honestly, I hate fruit beer. But I love BSide Brewing. The guys over there convinced me that I need to attend this event and open my mind a bit – if I can get in for free, I could become a believer…

  150. Andrew June 3, 2011 at 09:05 #

    I want to win so I can get my vitamins in the fruits and my refreshment in the beer at the same time. Efficiency at its best. Win/Win situation!

  151. damien June 3, 2011 at 09:10 #

    love a well made fruit beer -give me some WATERMELON!

  152. Dam June 3, 2011 at 09:19 #

    Fruit=healthy right? So fruit+beer=healthier beer. I’m in!!

  153. Susan June 3, 2011 at 09:53 #

    Anything to get me out of the house!!!

  154. Alec June 3, 2011 at 09:54 #

    A hell of a way to kick off the summer. Give this poor grad student some good fruit beer!

  155. Brian G June 3, 2011 at 10:18 #

    I think fruit beers can be wonderful and allow brewers to show off their creativity. My wife needs some convincing that they’re legit… need two tix to prove I’m right! ;-)

  156. Kristen June 3, 2011 at 11:39 #

    This could be the perfect introduction to beer!

  157. Angel June 3, 2011 at 12:00 #

    I love fruit, and I love beer. Enough said. Oh, did I mention I love fruit beer?

  158. Juniper June 3, 2011 at 12:19 #

    JuniPEAR would love to go!

  159. Lindsay Poston June 3, 2011 at 12:21 #

    Fruity beers are my favorite beers, but among any festival there’s usually only a couple fruity ones. This one will have fruity ones all over the place!!!

  160. Danielle June 3, 2011 at 13:40 #

    God! This sounds to die for! I am crazy for raspberry beer, this is the beer festival for me! Help me go and enjoy it in all of the sunshine that is coming! How awesome! And so cool to try all different flavours!!! SO EXCITED!

  161. Julie June 3, 2011 at 14:28 #

    I’d love to win tickets! I really love summery fruity beers and can’t wait to see how this new event rolls out. Thanks!

  162. Jenn June 3, 2011 at 15:02 #

    fruit and beer? what could be better. I love it when it’s sweet, sour, bitter… As long as it’s beer. And now I know I won’t get scurvy since this would cover my vitamin intake for a bit!

  163. Steve June 3, 2011 at 16:12 #

    My wife enjoys the fruit beer and I like to keep her happy!

  164. shay June 3, 2011 at 16:42 #

    This is my kind of beer festival! Please pick me for the tickets! These events are why I moved to Portland!!! :D

  174. John June 6, 2011 at 14:20 #

    Fruit beers are some of the best beers in the world, and I can not wait to go to this festival with some friends. I hope this festival proves to any skeptics that fruit beers are some of the best beers in the world.

  175. Amber June 6, 2011 at 15:57 #

    I’m a red-headed stepchild…and so are fruit beers, therefore we need to be together. :)

  176. Stevey Jo June 6, 2011 at 17:55 #

    My wife and I love fruit beers so much, we’ll be traveling all the way from PA to check out this Fest (…and the rest of the PNW.)

  177. Matt June 9, 2011 at 17:03 #

    I love Beer… but my wife doesn’t.
    She loves fruit… but I don’t.
    Sounds like something is going to have to give! :-)

  178. Brandy June 9, 2011 at 17:21 #

    A fruit beer festival? Amazing! A beer I’ll actually enjoy and the festival lends enough cred for me to not have to be embarassed about it! Pickme! Pick me!

  179. erin June 9, 2011 at 17:42 #

  180. Kahreen June 9, 2011 at 18:22 #

  181. Helen June 9, 2011 at 21:40 #

    How is this event All-Ages? Am I missing something? Like, it’s actually rootbeer in disguise…

  182. bena June 9, 2011 at 22:32 #

  183. Sarah June 9, 2011 at 22:46 #
