Oregon’s largest city, Portland expresses its love for beer quite freely with a large number of breweries and a larger number of beer festivals. Portland hosts exciting beer related events throughout the year. Two significant beer festivals are held in the Valentine’s Month as well. If you are planning to visit Portland, we recommend, you attend these events.
Zwickelmania is a one-day event held in Oregon every year on the President’s Day weekend. On this day, every year the breweries welcome all beer lovers to participate in the events. The event celebrating the love for beer falls a day before the Valentine’s day; on the 13th of February from 11 AM to 4 PM. About 120 small and big breweries have planned to be a part of the meet-the-brewer events. If you are planning a Valentine’s Day trip to Portland with your partner, drop by a brewery for some delicious and crisp brews. Zwickelmania is not limited to Portland but six regions of Oregon. Last year more than 30,000 people participated in the event by touring 115 breweries.
