Celebrate Earth Day by enjoying 20 different Salmon-Safe beers at Hopworks.

Hopworks Urban Brewery of Portland, Oregon invites you to join them for a Salmon-Safe IPA festival. Along with its own beers, the even features IPAs from several other beloved Northwest breweries. The list includes Georgetown Brewing, pFriem Family Brewers, Steeplejack Brewing, New Belgium Brewing, Sunriver Brewing, and a collaboration brew from Aslan Brewing and Lost Grove Brewing. See the complete list below.

This is the second time that Hopworks Urban Brewery has organized the festival. The event returns in 2023 after a multiyear hiatus. The Salmon-Safe IPA Festival takes place on Earth Day (April 22nd), starting at noon. Details below. Learn more about the event at secure tickets here.

According to event organizers, “The impact is two-fold: challenging brewers to use only Salmon-Safe ingredients in their beers can have a lasting impact on their brewing methods; and educating beer drinkers about the benefits of looking for the Salmon-Safe label on their brews can help create more demand for sustainably brewed beers.”

Tickets are sold for two separate sessions. From Noon to 4:00 pm, all ages are welcome. From 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm, only attendees over the age of 21 will be admitted. A free Salmon-Safe Grower and Brewer panel discussion will take place from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Each ticket comes with a 16-ounce glass tasting mug, and ten tickets for four-ounce tastes of beer. Tickets are $30.00 per person over 21, and are on sale now. $5.00 from each festival ticket sold goes to Oregon Wild to support their work, which ultimately benefits every Oregonian.

“It’s super-important for brewers and beer lovers to understand the link between fresh beer and fresh water, and it all begins with selecting the right ingredients,” said Hopworks founder Christian Ettinger. “Beer is the perfect platform for enlightened discussion around impact reduction, and this festival is a great reminder that we should all vote with our time and our dollars to support organizations that are working to preserve the land and water around the Pacific Northwest.”

“By sourcing Salmon-Safe hops and malts, the craft breweries at the festival are helping lead a movement towards climate-resilient agriculture that’s protective of Pacific Northwest salmon watersheds,” said Dan Kent, co-founder and executive director of Salmon-Safe. “And when consumers select a beer with the Salmon-Safe label, that inspires additional Northwest grain and hop growers to transition to environmentally innovative farming practices.”

Salmon-Safe IPA Festival is a benefit for Oregon Wild, Since 1974, Oregon Wild has worked to protect and restore our region’s fish and wildlife, ancient forests, and the rich diversity of public lands and landscapes that make the state so unique. The Oregon Brewshed® Alliance was started by Oregon Wild to engage brewers and industry stakeholders in the act of protecting our watersheds. Because great beer depends on great water, Oregon’s brewing industry is intimately connected with the health of the region’s land and water. Brewshed® Alliance members include brewers, craft beer affiliates, and conservationists who pledge to educate the beer drinking community about protected watersheds and their essential role in the state’s renowned craft brewing industry. Members also advocate for clean water and forest protections and support Oregon Wild’s conservation mission.
