Deschutes Brewery's 400-foot-long traveling pop-up bar, the Street Pub, is making its way home to Oregon – to Portland’s Central Eastside – for the ultimate outdoor block party. Since 2015, this giant outdoor pub has raised close to $940,000 for charities across the country. With up to 25,000 attendees expected, Deschutes is hoping that Portland beer lovers will help the brewery surpass the $1,000,000 mark for total donations to date.  Proceeds from each pint will go directly to the Cascade AIDS Project, the Children’s Cancer Association and Farmers Ending Hunger.

The Street Pub’s inaugural Portland visit takes place on Saturday, September 23, from 2 to 10 p.m. at 200 S.E. Stark Street. The event is free to attend, with 14-ounce pour tokens going for $5.  In additional to great beer, live music and food will round out this 1 day family friendly event. Beers will be matched by delicious culinary offerings crafted by Deschutes Brewery’s corporate executive chef Jeff Usinowicz (a.k.a. Chef Jeff) along with Chef Ryan Day from Wayfinder Beer and Chef Wesley Berger of Patton Maryland.

VIP Tickets are also available for $50 and include specialty beer tastings, catered appetizers, 2 beer tokens, a Hydro Flask True Pint, rare barrel tastings, Humm Kombucha on tap, a 50 percent off Keen shoe card, plus other fun swag.

Rare beers will be tapped throughout the event, alongside 18 other brews from 60 taps. In addition, there will be a guest tap from local neighborhood brewery, Wayfinder Beer.

“Street Pub is a natural extension of our Oregon public houses, which form the foundation of the brewery through sharing, community, creation of new beers and fan feedback on those beers,” said Veronica Vega, brewmaster for Deschutes Brewery. “In Portland, we are celebrating Street Pub’s homecoming with a selection of experimental projects that won’t disappoint. We can’t wait to hear what Portland thinks, as our fans’ willingness to try new things is the reason we are able to continue to push our imaginations.”
