Pacific Northwest Brew Cup

Thu, Aug 22, 2013

The Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) has recently become the organizer of the Pacific Northwest Brew Cup, the premier beer festival on Oregon’s North Coast. This Oktoberfest style beer festival featuring at least 36 Brewer selected beers, live music, food, and family games is scheduled to be held the last weekend in September, the 27th, 28th and 29th at Astoria’s newly renovated Historic Train Depot, just east of the Columbia River Maritime Museum, along the Astoria waterfront.


ADHDA is a non-profit organization that is committed to encouraging community involvement and investment in preserving the character of historic downtown Astoria while promoting its health and future. Astoria is currently a participant in the Oregon Main Street (OMS) program and a member of the National Main Street network. The Main Street Approach is a proven comprehensive approach to commercial historic district revitalization. As a 501(c) (3), all donations made to ADHDA are tax deductible.


Over 36 distinct northwest beers are on tap for this annual three day event that draws approximately 3,000 (and growing) beer lovers from all over the Lower Columbia and up and down the coast each year. Entrance to the festival is free. Festival attendees can purchase a souvenir glass mug which is the official tasting glass for the weekend, and also purchase individual tastes of the various beers. This is a family friendly event with activities for children as well. The event is scheduled to run from noon -10pm on Friday, 11am -10pm on Saturday and from 11am - 4pm on Sunday.
