Fall Brews and Oktoberfest in Tualatin Valley

While Oktoberfest has German roots, the Tualatin Valley puts its own spin on it, sharing our local beer culture with any and all who visit. With more than two dozen breweries in Tualatin Valley, there are a lot of porters, stouts and wheat beers to choose from. Even sour ales, which have a Belgian genealogy, are also a playful nod to Oktoberfest.
