Buoy Beer Company says
The 28th annual Oregon Brewers Festival will take place at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland, Oregon, July 22, 23, 24, 25 & 26, 2015 — "Always the last full weekend in July." The main entrance is at S.W. Oak Street and Naito Parkway.

Event hours are Wed through Sat, Noon to 9 pm and Sun, Noon to 7 pm. Token & mug sales close one-half hour earlier than the closing time.

Admission into the festival grounds is free. In order to consume beer, purchase of a 2015 souvenir glass is required and costs $7. Beer is purchased with wooden tokens. Tokens cost $1 apiece. Patrons pay four tokens for a full glass of beer, or one token for a taste. Any mugs or glasses from previous years are not accepted, but tokens from past years may be reused.

The Oregon Brewers Festival is one of the nation's longest running and best loved craft beer festivals. Situated on the west bank of the Willamette River, with towering Mt. Hood as a backdrop, it is the ideal venue for anyone who loves craft beer. With a laid back attitude and scores of award-winning beers, the festival reflects the essence of the city of Portland.

The Oregon Brewers Festival exists to provide an opportunity to sample and learn about a variety of craft beer styles from across the country. Eighty craft breweries from all parts of the nation offer handcrafted brews to 85,000 beer lovers during the five-day event.

The festival's focus is craft beer, but there's more than sampling involved. The event features live music all four days, beer-related vendors, beer memorabilia displays, beer writers, homebrewing demonstrations, and an assortment of foods from a variety of regions. The Crater Lake Root Beer Garden offers complimentary handcrafted root beer for minors and designated drivers. Minors are always welcome at the festival when accompanied by a parent.

The Oregon Brewers Festival strongly encourages responsible drinking, and urges patrons to take advantage of the MAX Light Rail line, located just one block west of the festival on SW Oak Street. Go by bus, train or taxi, just don't drink and drive. The festival also offers free, on-site bicycle parking.
