PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — The 27th annual Oregon Brewers Festival is set to pick up steam Friday as thousands of beer enthusiasts make a weekend pilgrimage.

The Oregon Brewers Festival, one of the longest-running beer gatherings in the country and a key event of Portland’s summer, features more than 20 styles of hand-crafted beers from 80 breweries.

Situated along the Willamette River at Waterfront Park, the festival is free to the public, though any beer-consuming will require a $7 tasting glass and $1 tokens.

The festival, which started Wednesday, will be open from noon to 9 p.m. through Saturday. Taps close at 7 p.m. Sunday.

KOIN 6 News reporter Elishah Oesch was out bright and early enjoying some of the area’s finest craft brews.
