December 2nd - December 6th, 2015 | Pioneer Courthouse Square | Portland, Oregon

More than 50 potent winter ales are featured at this year's event, all of which are created specifically to bring warmth and cheer to the holiday season. These aren't beers you'll find in the supermarket - our brewers have put together special recipes just for the Holiday Ale Festival.

Limited Release Beers

2015 Limited Release Beers

The Limited Release Beers are special vintage beers for which there is a very limited supply. These beers typically require additional tickets for a taster, with a select few also offered as full glass pours of varying ticket cost. To help ensure as many people as possible get a fair chance of trying at least one of these beers, we stagger their tapping throughout each day of the fest (Wednesday through Saturday only).

TBD - To Be Determined • MPLT - More Pouring Later Today • GTHT - Gone Today, Here Tomorrow • OUT - Sold Out

All Limited Release Beers are double tickets unless noted (onsite); some are tasters only. Beers are subject to change. "Meet the Brewer" Beers will be announced the evening before each day of the event. All other limited release beers will be announced as "pop-up" tappings in real-time both here and on our social media feeds.
