We’ll be serving three craft beers by Portland’s own Widmer Brothers Brewing in ARTCRANK pint glasses all three nights of the show.

BTA promotes bicycling and improve bicycling conditions in Oregon, creating communities where people can meet their daily transportation needs on a bike.
On Thursday night, Clif Bar is offering free valet bike parking directly in front of the venue on 10th Avenue and giving away a grip of Mojo bars to keep partygoers going strong. And thanks to a donation by Neenah Paper, all proceeds from sales of the ARTCRANK PDX 2012 show poster will also benefit BTA.
