This is totally a more relaxed atmosphere vs. the summer Oregon Brewers Festival. Less to taste, but each brewery has it's own "booth". Most of the times someone from the brewery is there, but not always. And there are vendor, food, music, demonstrations (cooking, pairings, etc). It's a great event. I've only been there on Friday afternoons, but won't be able to make it until Saturday afternoon this year. It will be interesting to see if the vibe is different.
