Pacific Northwest Brew Cup 2014: September 26-28

The Pacific Northwest Brew Cup is an annual beer festival held the last full weekend in September in beautiful Astoria, Oregon. The festival features northwest beers on tap Friday through Sunday, along with live music, food vendors, and activities for the kiddos. Admission is FREE. To taste beer you’ll need a souvenir mug ($9 each) and tokens ($1 each).

The Pacific Northwest Brew Cup was established in 2002 by the owners of Astoria’s Baked Alaska Restaurant. Today, the event is organized and presented by the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association, with proceeds benefiting local downtown revitalization efforts.

Named “Best Beer Festival” by John Foyston of The Oregonian, January 2010.
