Oregon Brewers Festival

After OSCON ended, I went to the Oregon Brewers Festival on Friday afternoon. This is the first time I have gone after living in Portland for five years and loving beer. I rode my bike downtown; they had guarded bike parking. The cost was $4 for the mug, $1 for tokens which give a taste (or 4 give a full glass). When I went, the tents were fairly crowded but there weren’t long lines for the beer or the restrooms.

First, I had a full glass of Flying Fish Bourbon Barrel Abbey Dubbel which is a delicious Belgian-style Dubbel. Then, I had tastes of Rogue Ales Imperial Porter, Boulder Beer Sweaty Betty Blonde, Green Flash West Coast IPA, and Laurelwood PNW Pils. I deliberately tried to get beers from non-locals breweries since I seen many of the local beers in bars or stores.
