12th annual Zwickelmania: Portland Metro Area

February 15 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


The 12th annual Zwickelmania, which annually draws more than 30,000 people, will span two different Saturdays. Portland Metro area breweries will kick off the event on Saturday, Feb. 15, while breweries across five more Oregon regions––including Central Oregon, the Columbia River Gorge, the Oregon Coast, Southern Oregon, and the Willamette Valley––will welcome guests the following Saturday, Feb. 22. The free event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both dates.

Zwickelmania will serve as the highlight of Oregon Craft Beer Month, a month-long celebration that includes tap takeovers, beer festivals, panel discussions and more. Oregon Craft Beer Month has previously taken place in July for the last 15 years; according to the Oregon Brewers Guild, its members collectively agreed to the date change this year, noting that summer is already an incredibly busy time for the industry. Hosting Oregon Craft Beer Month in February gives Oregon beer the celebration and attention it deserves.

Thirty breweries from across the state have collaborated on a limited run Zwickelmania beer that will be canned and sold at participating breweries during the event. “State of Excitement IPA” is a West Coast IPA collectively created by 30 Oregon brewers to celebrate the friendly and collaborative nature of the Oregon beer scene. State of Excitement IPA will be available for purchase at select breweries during Zwickelmania. Proceeds from sales of the beer benefit the Oregon Brewers Guild, which supports breweries, suppliers, education and collaboration.

Zwickelmania is named in honor of the zwickel, a screw valve that mounts on the outside of fermentation or conditioning tanks and allows brewers to sample the beer inside for quality assurance and control.
