Mt. Hood Territory Breweries Celebrate Zwickelmania

Zwickelmania 2020 may be over, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the amazing craft beer from our brewers. Check out our Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail options, and go on a tasting aleventure. 

Flight of beer at Breakside Brewery

Brewers throughout Mt. Hood Territory open their doors during Zwickelmania, an event celebrating the craft of craft beers. Get a behind-the-scenes look at your favorite breweries with meet-the-brewer events, brewery tours and tastings of unique experimental brews. Some of these beers are so new they can only be tasted straight from the "zwickel," the tap on the tank that allows brewers to monitor the beer crafting process. Zwickelmania comes to Portland on Saturday, February 15, 2020 from 11am-4pm. 

Vanguard Zwickelmania

This year, Mt. Hood Territory will be celebrating Zwickelmania at Vanguard Brewing in Wilsonville, where we'll also be promoting our Tap Trail beer passport! Vanguard features innovative brews like their "Now and Zen" sake-yeast hybrid beer. Or try the freshest IPA you've ever had, straight from the bright tank zwickel during Zwickelmania. Since the Zwickelmania event lasts for just one day, download the free Tap Trail mobile passport for discounts at 16 local craft breweries that you can use any time.
