Oregon Otter Beer Festival
Supporting ocean conservation has never been more fun! Cheers to that.
3rd Annual Oregon Otter Beer Festival
April 13, 2024
OMSI, Portland OR
The Elakha Alliance is hosting our largest fundraiser of the year on April 13th, 2024 all in the name of working towards returning sea otters to Oregon. The non-profit is challenging local breweries to make a ‘sea otter themed’ beer utilizing Maris Otter Malt. Each brewery agrees to donate a portion of their otter beers sales back to the Elakha Alliance, and the Oregon Otter Beer Festival is a chance to celebrate their tasty concoctions for a cause. The Festival guests had the special opportunity to vote for their otter-fan-favorite, meanwhile a panel of judges will select their top winners for various otter-beer titles.
The Festival features incredible door prize raffles, with outstanding coastal-themed experiences and unique artwork from around the world. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
