Salmon-Safe is teaming up with Portland’s Hopworks Urban Brewery and twenty regional & national brewers on a first ever Salmon-Safe IPA Festival that will be held at HUB  on August 25.

Co-presented by HUB, the Salmon-Safe IPA Festival is the first festival of it’s kind, bringing together breweries – large and small – to make hop-forward beers that are all brewed with Salmon-Safe certified ingredients.

The Festival will be divided into two sessions on August 25. Session #1 is an all-ages session that runs from 12-4pm, and Session #2 is 21+ and runs from 5-9pm. Each ticket package costs $25 and comes with 10 drink tickets, an order of HUB’s world-famous pretzels, a HUB 10th anniversary chalice and a raffle ticket for prizes from various Salmon-Safe certified businesses. Each session has only 400 tickets available and the event is expected to sell out, so make sure you grab tickets in advance. All proceeds from this event benefit Salmon-Safe’s work with Northwest hop and malt growers.

In between sessions, Salmon-Safe and HUB have lined up engaging panel discussions with brewers and hop growers to discuss why Salmon-Safe certification matters and how breweries and farmers are working together to keep our waterways and our planet healthy.
