PCRT Beer Week Disc Golf Scavenger Hunt


This will be a ticketed event. 

Join us Saturday November 7th at The Thirsty Pig for the 3rd annual PCRT Beer Week Scavenger Hunt. This year we've added a twist.... disc golf! Teams will participate in a beer-centric scavenger hunt across the Portland penninsula while playing 9 holes of disc golf.

Clues will lead you to Portland's bars, breweries, and landmarks. At each location, your team will be required to play a hole of disc golf. Each location will be designing their own hole and providing their own version of a basket and disc. There will be prizes for the top teams, beer drinking bonus challenges, and special deals along the way. 

Teams will be scored on their overall time to complete the course, disc golf score, beer drinking bonuses, and bonus points for costumes and enthusiasm. Since this is a form of golf, we encourage teams to don their finest golf apparel (whatever that may be) as points will be awarded for costumes! More information will be coming soon. Be sure to check this page as well as for updates.

Awards and After Party: The event will start and finish at The Thirsty Pig where you will enjoy an after party and awards ceremony complete with prizes and drink specials.  

Starts at The Thirsty Pig at noon. 21+
