The 3rd annual Portland Fruit Beer Festival will be held on June 8th and 9th during Portland Beer Week and welcome over 30 participating breweries. Highlighting the spectacular flavors and variety that fruit can offer from locally grown Oregon berries to exotic and rare you have never experienced anything like the Portland Fruit Beer Festival.
Taking place outdoors in front of Burnside Brewing Co. on 7th and E. Burnside for it’s 3rd year with even more space with the addition of the 7th street closure the PFBF is one of the most centrally located and family friendly festivals in the state. The all-ages festival has something for everyone including hard cider for the gluten intolerant, killer food from the Burnside Brewing kitchen and juices and sodas for the non drinker.
The brewery and beer list this year is more diverse than ever featuring Oregon locals and regional favorites. The beers this year range from a hoppy Mango IPA to a sour Currant and Raspberry Baltic Porter. Lighter beers get their due with an OJ infused Pilsner, Blood Orange Wit and Sour Cherry Wheat. On the stranger side the fest will feature a Sour Cucumber beer a Kiwi ale and a Beer/Cider/Mead hybrid 3-way collaboration. Barrel-aged beers also get their due with special brews from Upright Brewing, Lompoc Brewing, Burnside Brewing and more. If your a cider fan you can look forward to Marionberry and Rhubarb infused hard ciders. As usual nearly all of the beers at the Portland Fruit Beer Festival are brewed exclusively for this event and may be the only place to try them.

Fort George Brewing: Forbidden Wonder Fruit Ale
For this year’s Fruit Ale Festival, Fort George decided to make a kiwi caramel beer. Kiwis are known around the world by many names, but our favorite is the Chinese translation – “”Wonder Fruit.”” We made this caramel ale with Wyeast’s “”Forbidden Fruit”” yeast, infusing a sublte raspberry flavor. The Forbidden Wonder Fruit Ale has a lighter body that won’t distract the pallet from the layers of flavor that glide over the tongue. Even with all of these great ingredients and flavors mixing together, the Forbidden Wonder Fruit Ale is not overly sweet, making it a beer that everyone can enjoy on a hot summer day. 6.7% ABV
Gigantic Brewing: Hey there Fruitcake!

Once again 10 Barrel gets fresh! Tonya took her award winning Berliner Weisse and added loads of cucumbers. The aroma is undeniably cucumber. The flavor is like biting into a crisp baby cucumber fresh from the garden. Just when you have had enough the tartness acts as a pallet cleanser leaving you ready for the next sip. Eat Beer! 4% ABV 17 IBU
