Portland Craft Beer Festival

Jeanette invited me to the new Portland Craft Beer Festival on Saturday. We had just heard about it on the news and put together an impromptu visit on the Fourth of July. It was modeled off of the bigger Oregon Brewer Festival held later this month. This new beer festival only featured Portland Breweries. As you would expect for a summer beer fest it featured many IPAs, Pale Ales, Belgiums and lighter lagers. We did find two stouts and tried over 20 different beers. There were plenty of different beers to sample but after only being open for two hours they were already running out of some of brews. They also had not planned on holding this event during a early summer heat wave but tried adapting with a number of cooling options.
