Oregon Garden Brewfest

This is a new brewfest for me and I have never been to the Oregon Gardens before. When it started there were many news stories about parking problems so I stayed away from it. They have taken a number of steps to take care of this problem so this year we gave it a try. Parking was no problem. It turn out to be a great venue for a brewfest. The event was held in a forested area that provide nice shade and plenty of room to move around. Between the five of us we tried around thirty different beers, meads and ciders. As with most summer events it was heavy with IPA and there were some good ones. After we finished with our sampling we walked around the garden and enjoyed the landscaping and flowers.
