Share your love of suds at the 15th annual Pacific Northwest Brew Cup, Sept. 23-25, 2016. Located on Astoria’s historic waterfront overlooking the Columbia River, the North Coast’s hoppiest festival will feature 40 Northwest beers and ciders- watch who will fight it out to become the first keg to blow in the “Thar She Blows” contest! With local distilled spirits, food vendors who will delight your palate, and live music as varied as the beer, there’s something for everyone.
The event opens Friday, September 23 at noon, with the Scratchdog String Band opening the music stage at 1:00 pm, and continues through Sunday, September 25, closing at 4pm. New this year! During the festival, head over to the “Meet the Brewers” tent to talk hop varietals, IBUs and all things beer!
Entrance to the PNW Brew Cup is free and open to all ages; souvenir tasting glasses are available for purchase ($9) and tokens ($1) are required to sample any of the great beers and ciders. Brew Cup swag is available at entry as well as chances to play the “Business Crawl Passport,” and be entered to win great prizes donated by Astoria’s downtown merchants. A special area for kids, both big and small, provided by Purple Cow Toys, will keep the children happy. And don’t forget, it’s time to get that growler filled on “Growler Fill Sunday” - $10 for a ½ gallon – so bring your growler and fill up, you deserve it!
AND for the beer & beer stein enthusiasts, the PNW Brew Cup logo is coming to life! To celebrate the 15th year of the Pacific Northwest Brew Cup, the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) has partnered with Steel & Timber Construction + Fabrication to create a commemorative 66-ounce PNWBC beer stein complete with it’s unique “lid” and ornamental design. Tickets will be $10 each, and can only be purchased on-site.
