About Zwickelmania


What the heck is Zwickelmania, you ask? It’s a free event hosted by the Oregon Brewers Guild in which breweries throughout the state throw open their doors and let the public stream in! Stop by our brewery, where you can chat with the brewers and try a sample of their handcrafted brew. You can also take a tour of the brewery, nab a tiny appetizer or two, fill a 64 ounce growler for $5 off and score a few stamps for your McMenamins Passport.

"There's an excitement about the craft brewing scene here, and Zwickelmania offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate our beer culture by visiting some of the phenomenal breweries that call Oregon home," says Oregon Brewers Guild Executive Director Brian Butenschoen.

From 11 am - 4 pm, participating locations will offer everything from brewery tours and beer & food pairings to brewer-led discussions and beer samples. Additionally, the Oregon Brewers Guild will provide free shuttle buses in Portland, Eugene and Bend to ferry visitors among multiple breweries. Admission to Zwickelmania events and the shuttle bus service are both free.

Zwickelmania takes its name from the zwickel sample valve on beer conditioning tanks.  This sample port is an essential tool in the brewing process and allows brewers to take quality control samples during the fermentation process.

Shuttle Routes:
