2017 Portland Beers Made By Walking

Beers Made By Walking and Forest Park Conservancy Announce New Hikes with Portland Brewers and Cider makers

Now in its sixth year, Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) returns to the Pacific Northwest with a new series of public hikes with brewers and cider makers in Portland’s Forest Park. BMBW invites brewers to go on nature hikes and make beer inspired by plants found on the trail.

The 2017 series of hikes are organized by Forest Park Conservancy. Each hike is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required. Hikers are accompanied by a local brewer who must create a hike-inspired beer/cider in the summer. A list of hikes and sign ups are available below.

These place-based beers serve as drinkable, landscape portraits of the trails that are walked. Tapped during special events at each respective brewery, the beer and cider proceeds are donated to the Forest Park Conservancy. The full list of beers will be published after the hikes are finalized, but you can see hike dates below if you'd like to add them to your calendar.
