Press release

Road Trips for Beer photo by Gerard WalenPORTLAND, Ore. (January 30, 2013)—Over 23,000 visitors set their sights on Oregon breweries during Zwickelmania in 2012 and that figure is projected to grow on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at the fifth annual Zwickelmania.

Free Zwickelmania shuttle tours are located in Portland, Bend, Salem, Corvallis and Eugene and entry is free at all participating breweries. A full list of shuttle schedules will be added soon to the Oregon Brewers Guild website at http://oregonbeer.org/zwickelmania.

“Each year, Oregon breweries are seeing a rising interest from people who are excited to experience the inner workings of a brewery,” says Brian Butenschoen , Oregon Brewers Guild executive director. “This is that rare time of the year where people get exclusive access to the breweries and brewers.”

This is the fifth anniversary—or the wood anniversary. Attendees should be on the lookout for barrel-aged beers, such as ones from Full Sail Brewing, Breakside Brewery and the unveiling of Oakshire Brewing’s “Hellshire III.”

Visitors are encouraged to take pictures of the breweries while they’re touring and to use the hashtag #Zwickel13 when posting to Twitter and Instagram. Additionally, anyone who posts a photo from the event to the Zwickelmania Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win a prize package containing two glasses and 10 tickets each to the upcoming event “Cheers to Belgian Beers” on Saturday, April 20 at Metalcraft Fabrication in Portland.
