Oregon craft beer opens its doors wide

On Presidents Day weekend, dozens of Oregon breweries will open their doors to the public and offer tours, tastings and meet-and-greets with brewers.

Hosted by the Oregon Brewers Build for the third year in a row, the annual Zwickelmania tour gives the state some call Beervana a chance to showcase its craft beer reputation all at once. Though “reputation” seems a little weak; maybe “permeation” would be better.

More than 55 breweries will participate in the event on Saturday, February 19, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. If your Road Trips for Beer calendar is empty that day, and you can make it, start planning.

To see a list of the participating breweries and more details, go to the Oregon Brewers Guild website.

By the way, if you didn’t know already, a zwickel is the sampling valve mounted on the outside of a brewery’s fermentation tanks.
