Oregon Brewers Festival

After OSCON ended, I went to the [Oregon Brewers Festival](http://www.oregonbrewfest.com/) 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](http://flyingfish.com) Bourbon Barrel Abbey Dubbel which is a delicious Belgian-style Dubbel. Then, I had tastes of [Rogue Ales](http://rogue.com/) Imperial Porter, [Boulder Beer](http://boulderbeer.com/) Sweaty Betty Blonde, [Green Flash](http://greenflashbrew.com/) West Coast IPA, and [Laurelwood](http://laurelwoodbrewpub.com/) PNW Pils. I deliberately tried to get beers from non-locals breweries since I seen many of the local beers in bars or stores.
