Portland International Airport is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the now-iconic Clocktower in the shop and amenity-filled pre-secrurity area of the airport. And that means lots of fun – and free stuff – for travelers, meeters and greeters and anyone who knows what a pleasant area that pre-security space can be.
Coming up Friday, June 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 pm, the plaza will be transformed into a beer garden with more than a dozen craft beers available for tasting. The event also celebrates the grand opening of Deschutes Brewery at PDX – the beermaker’s first location opening in Oregon in 10 years.
As part of the brewfest, attendees will be able to pick up a limited edition Clocktower 30 pin, which is one of four special pin designs travelers can collect this summer.
Can’t make it to the brewfest? PDX has many other events coming up throughout the summer. See the full schedule here.

Deadline is September 9, 2018. Enter here.
I used to live on the Oregon coast and can attest to the fact that is indeed a magical place.
