North American Organic Brewers Festival

The North American Organic Brewers Festival will take place June 25th-27th in Portland, OR. This annual event features beers from around the globe that are either certified organic, or brewed with organic ingredients. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Oregon Food Bank.

In a continuing effort to promote sustainability, the festival is now using tasting cups made from cornstarch, rather than plastic. The corn cups are 100% compostable, and are made using solar energy and domestically-grown corn. Additionally, all vendors will be using compostable plates and flatware, and the festival's energy needs will be provided by a biodiesel-fueled generator.

If you're near Portland, or can make the trip, this looks to be an exciting event.
