Be a Part of The Dream

We may have been established in Milwaukee in 1844, but it was in Portland that Pabst was reborn. Our love letter to Portland has been written in the stars for sometime now, and this July we're on our way to deliver the message first hand. Join us by day, near the banks of the Willamette River, for a one-of-a-kind music experience and an endless supply of Portland's favorite brew.

And then at night Project Pabst invades some of the best music venues in the country, as we honor the city that solidified the bond between Pabst and music of every genre. Get ready to throw back a few pounders with your favorite people, as we promise to keep the festival from smelling like teen spirit . . .

It's 21 and over, folks.


Festival Info

Getting to Project Pabst

Project Pabst will take place in Portland’s South Waterfront District at the historic Zidell Yards located at 3030 SW Moody Ave, Portland, OR 97201 (between the new Tilikum Crossing and the Ross Island Bridge). Zidell Yards is just 1.2 miles from downtown Portland and is easy to get to by walking, biking, and other public transportation options - our favorite, Portland Streetcar. Street parking and public parking are limited in the immediate festival area. We encourage all attendees to use alternate forms of transportation. If you do drive, please carpool to reduce traffic, and always choose a Designated Driver.



Directions

3030 SW Moody Ave, Portland, OR 97201

Located in the heart of Portland's South Waterfront District, the 33-acre Zidell Yards is the largest undeveloped site in the city. Barge-making still operates on one part of the former shipyard, as the fourth generation of the Zidell family transforms the site into a brand new neighborhood of homes, work spaces and dynamic public arenas on the Willamette River. For more information on the Zidell Yards, visit www.zidellyards.com or on Facebook at Zidell Yards.

By Portland Streetcar

In collaboration with Project Pabst, Portland Streetcar has announced increased service and free rides (for Project Pabst ticket holders) to Zidell Yards over the festival weekend. To ride for free, just show your streetcar driver a valid Project Pabst ticket. Jump on the Portland Streetcar and head to the S.W. Moody & Meade South streetcar stop which drops you across the street from Project Pabst. The streetcar accommodates bikes and wheelchairs.

Activities

PBRcade


Knowing that Portlanders feel most at home in a bar, Pabst is excited to bring the PBRcade dive bar back to the grounds of Project Pabst. With the sights and sounds of some of PBR’s favorite locales, this bar will have pinball machines and arcade games (yes, both Nibbler and Pac Man), Eye Candy VJs to play your favorite video jams, and it wouldn’t be a dive bar without the occasional surly bartender.

Pabst VANdalism

An experiment in mobile creativity on the streets of USA and beyond, the #PabstVan will be onsite at Project Pabst. It’s a good thing you have two hands—grab a beer and a spray can and go to town. The van will be onsite at Project Pabst Saturday and Sunday for your VANdalizing enjoyment.

DON’T FORGET TO EAT

What goes great with beer? Grilled meats! Come hang out in the new PBR-B-Q and power down Bunk Sandwiches or Reverend’s BBQ.

Want more? We’ve also got your covered with incredible local food vendors including: Atlas Pizza, Boke Bowl, Fifty Licks Ice Cream, Olympic Provisions and Slowburger.

Not Your Father’s Root Beer Floats

It’s true, Project Pabst got their hands on a few cases of Not Your Father’s Root Beer (yup, it’s alcoholic and it’s amazing) and will be partnering with Fifty Licks Ice Cream to serve up some Not Your Father’s Root Beer Floats. Did we mention it’s National Ice Cream Day on Sunday? It is. Better grab a float.
