This was my first time to visit the Portland International Beerfest. It found some interesting beers to try even though it was a little expensive. I tried a couple of German dopplebocks for the first time and one was quite good. This festival has both draft beers by mostly local breweries and bottle beer, which were mostly foreign beers. The event draws a lot of people but is all contained in one city block so no way enough space. In spit of the crowd and expense it can be place to sample some hard to find beer styles.
