Oregon's soil produces amazing fruits and vegetables. The vineyards grow grapes that make award-winning wines. The hops are the reason Portland has more breweries than any other city in the world. The ocean provides sustainably caught salmon, Dungeness crab and tuna. And the beef, pork and chicken are organic and raised to the highest standards. Oregon grows much of the country's hazelnuts, marionberries and green beans. And the forests are home to so many exotic mushrooms the Japanese have Oregon on speed dial. Best of all, Oregon has marvelous chefs who know what to do with all this abundance. So it's been decided it's high time Oregon had their own world-class celebration of food, drink and everything else that makes Portland awesome. It's called Feast Portland and Deschutes Brewery is proud to support this event and it's fine cause.
At the heart of the festival is a mission to end childhood hunger in Oregon and in the country. A state where food is so plentiful should not also rank as one of the hungriest in the nation. This is part of the three-day dynamic exchange of ideas, inspiration and dialogue that Feast Portland will create with food enthusiasts from Oregon, across the U.S. and around the globe.
Deschutes Brewery will be available at the Saturday Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting Presented by Alaska Airlines, the Tillamook Brunch Village and the USA Pears Night Market at Zidell Yards. We look forward to celebrating Oregon's bounty with you at this five star event! Cheers!
