Default Oregon Brewers Festival

The Oregon Brewers Festival is coming up July 26 - 29, 2007 in Portland. Who all's going? We should plan an HBT get together. I'll be there on Thursday when they open.

Yeah, the public transportation in Portland is great with the light rail (MAX) and the street car downtown you can get anywhere. It's also cool that it's only a $28.00 train ride from Seattle to Portland and I can walk to the festival from Union Station.

I'm planning on being there. I worked the OBC booth one morning last year and spent the afternoon sampling. Missed the sign-up meetings this year. I MAX in, but my van is so tall that I have to park about a half mile from the Beaverton station.

When are you going david_42? I like the Thursday aftrnoon sessions just because the crowd is a lot smaller. I'll probably be back early on Friday and for a bit on Saturday. I'll be in Portland all weekend. We'll have to grab a beer.

I signed up for the OBC booth Sunday 12-3:30. I had been planning Saturday, but they needed coverage. I suspect this means lots of floaters before I get there. Fortunately, the IPAs go first & it's a rare one I haven't tried already. Last year, there were only a dozen brews I had not tasted before. But, that was plenty.

Well count me out. Portland's way to far for me. Plus I don't like beer anyways.






What? Why are you all looking at me that way? I was kidding!

We're going to go, I just don't know when, exactly. Thursday evening sounds like a good time to go, before the weekend hits.

Alright folks this is coming up this weekend. I'll be there when they open on Thursday, I know others are coming later but we should plan a time to all get together and drink some beers. I'm not heading back to Seattle until Sunday. We should PM contact info so that we can get a hold of each other when we are in town. (Worked great at NHC in Denver)
