2014 Holiday Ale Festival

December 3, 2014 @ 11:00 am - December 7, 2014 @ 5:00 pm


Held in the heart of downtown Portland, the Holiday Ale Festival keeps attendees warm and dry under a large clear top tent allowing for views of the city lights. Gas heaters create a cozy ambience under the boughs of one of the region’s largest decorated Christmas trees. As always, the Holiday Ale Festival is taking place in the heart of downtown Portland at Pioneer Courthouse Square. Directly on the MAX transit line! The Festival also includes on-site food, festival merchandise and more!

*FREE* re-admission into the Festival all 5 days with wristband and current year’s mug.

To enter and taste beers, the purchase of an initial tasting package is required. The package includes a souvenir mug, 12 beer tickets and costs $35 at the door (CASH ONLY).

Additional beer tickets can be purchased for $1 each. Previous years’ mugs cannot be used and will not be filled; however, current year mugs can be reused on subsequent visits within the same yearly festival.

Advance Tickets are now on sale!

Advance General Admission Tickets [$35] include a festival mug, 14 beer tickets and expedited entry all five days with wristband and current year’s mug (provided the event is not at capacity). This advance purchase provides 2 additional tickets plus expedited entry as compared to standard admission at the door.

Advance VIP Tickets [$80] include a festival mug, 30 beer tickets, express entry all five days with wristband and current year’s mug (provided the event is not at capacity), a bottle of water and access to VIP beer lines (including Limited Release/Lounge Tappings).

A “taster” size pour of beer (4oz) requires one ticket (a few limited release and special tapping beers require two tickets). A full mug of beer requires four tickets (some limited release and special tappings may not be available in full mug pours, or may be double tickets).

The festival stops selling beer tickets 1/2 hour prior to the posted closure time.

This is a 21+ event! No minors are allowed, including infants. No pets are permitted (except ADA).
