Jul 3-5: Portland Craft Beer Festival – Volunteers Needed

PCBF LogoVolunteer for the James Beard Public Market at the first ever Portland Craft Brew Festival in July. As most of us know Portland, Oregon is recognized as the leading “beer fortified” city in the world. At last count there were 57 breweries within Portland city limits with several more scheduled to open within the year.

The Portland Craft Beer Festival (PCBF) is a new annual opportunity for the legal-drinking-aged public to taste a substantial representation of beers originating from Portland breweries. Only beers brewed within Portland city limits will be featured at the PCBF, making it a unique experience from other beer festivals hosted in the city.

Who: Volunteers 21 and older are needed to serve beer for a 3½ hour shift on behalf of James Beard Public Market. An OLCC Servers Permit is not required to participate as a volunteer server at this event.

What: For their time volunteers will receive a t-shirt, wristband and beer mug with 10 beer tickets to enjoy after their shift.

When: Saturday, July 4th from 12 pm (noon) – 3:30 pm. Stay on afterwards to enjoy the festival, complementary beer tickets and the holiday fireworks display.

Where: Fields Neighborhood Park – 1099 Northwest Overton Street Portland 97209
