Brewing Bridges collab beer fest is back for the 4th year

Northbank Beer Week is a celebration of the beers of Southwest Washington. It’s a ten-day celebration that kicks off on September 8th. One of the premier events of Northbank Beer Week is Brewing Bridges Collaboration Beer Festival. This year the festival takes place on Saturday, September 17th in Vancouver, Washington. Brewing Bridges offers festivalgoers a selection of one-off collaboration beers.

For the fourth year, Brewing Bridges brings more than 20 Southwest Washington breweries together with other breweries for a collaboration beer fest. Many of the collab partners (listed below) are from across the river in Portland, but others are from farther afield, like Payette Brewing from Boise, Idaho and Freebridge Brewing from The Dalles, Oregon. In addition to the collab beers, they say that some of the breweries will bring other surprises, too.

They’re calling it a “no-token beer festival,” which means you can try as many of the collaboration beers as you like, as long as you’re responsible. This event gets to play by a different set of rules than many other festivals because it takes place on federal reserved land at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.
