2016 Nano Beer Fest Sponsors

Thank you to all of our sponsors! Please visit their place of business and don't forget to thank them for helping make this event a success!

Our Sponsors:

  • Max's Fanno Creek Brew Pub
    Max's Fanno Creek Brew Pub

    Founding the Nano Beer Fest at their brewpub back in 2008, owners Marvin and Connie Bowen sought to create a different type of beer fest: one to help out the smaller/newer breweries. With some guidance by Oliver at Global Client Services, the idea of a 'Nano Beer Fest' solidified into reality. Space and parking constraints prevent them from hosting the event for the future, but the Nano Beer Fest will never forget where it got its start! Max's Fanno Creek Brew Pub is the Portland area's place to gather for unique hand crafted beers, cocktails and tasty pub grub. Located in Tigard, you will find an atmosphere that is comfortable, friendly, and casual. Max's Fanno Creek Brew Pub is child friendly and a fun destination for the entire family.

About Our Event

  • Started back in 2008, the Nano Beer Fest began at Max's Fanno Creek where the owners were looking for a way to showcase the local small brewers who were coming on the scene. 8 years later it has grown to an annual event featuring 30+ beers, ciders and meads made by some of the most inventive and newest members of the local craft industry! Join us to celebrate (and meet) these rising stars - there will be 'Meet the Brewer' sessions both days, with many brewers participating.
