Event Details

A Brats-and-Brews Celebration
Announcing the 2013 Local Hero Award Winners

Join Ecotrust and Edible Portland for a raucous celebration! We are transforming the Ecotrust building into a beer hall—local handmade sausages, kraut, pretzels and brews included! Below little biergarten flags, amid great cheers, we will announce this year’s six Local Hero Award winners.


WHAT ARE THE LOCAL HERO AWARDS?

Since 2009, Edible Portland has recognized local food heroes who exemplify high standards in their social and environmental practices, food sourcing, regional economic impact, and commitment to promoting a sustainable food system in the following categories: Farm/Ranch, Restaurant, Food Artisan, Beverage Artisan, Nonprofit, and Retailer. After a call for nominations, we select the top four nominees, and the public votes for the winner. (Meet the nominees. Voting closed on March 1.)

Come clink glasses with food heroes, enjoy five stations featuring the unbelievable brat-kraut-brew trifecta, and support our work to build a robust regional food system. All proceeds benefit Ecotrust.

The Award Ceremony will begin at 8 pm.

KID'S FOOD HERO DRAWING CONTEST ON DISPLAY!

We asked kids ages 5 to 12 to draw their food heroes, and their eat-your-heart-out entries will be on display during the event. All attendees will have the chance to peruse and vote for their favorite, which will win one of the kids a slot in a Zenger Farm Summer Camp!
