Holiday Ale Festival

The Holiday Ale Festival takes place in Pioneer Square, the heart of downtown Portland, November 28 to December 2. This evening event might be a little chilly, but well worth a trip. Cozy up to the heaters under the tent and take in the city lights with the region’s largest decorated Christmas tree as the backdrop. There will be food vendors, craft booths and a root beer garden for minors. Many of the beers available for tasting are special releases just for the event.
