Just got back to the office from the brunch. It was fun, but I didn't get to stick around for the parade...next year I really need to take the Thursday and Friday off from work! Saw the mayor of PDX, Kurt Widmer and meet John Foyston (he does the beer column in the Oregonian A&E and the beer blog on oregonlive among other things).

I'll be there tomorrow when it opens. Last year I saw a couple of guys that had pretzel necklaces. When you're tasting so many beers in a short time your tongue gets all confused. So this year I'll have a pretzel necklace on.

My back is still trashed, so I'll miss the fest. Missed last weekend's as well. Both were great last year.

Festival was awesome got to try a lot of great beers. Pliny The Elder was the show stealer. Best IPA I've tried yet. Went to LHBS the next day and they had all the hops I needed except Columbus . Talked to a friend who went Saturday who said Pliny the Elder was tapped out by 1pm.

Just got back to Seattle. What a weekend! Went to OBF on Thursday which is always great, fewer people, no lines and the beer never runs out.

On Friday we headed out for a Portland pub crawl. We started at Hopworks then went over to the open house party at Hair of the Dog. From there we were off to Roots, Lucky Lab and The Green Dragon where we also sampled some Absinthe from the distillery next door. We ended up at the Pilsner Room for the late night happy hour and ended up closing the place down.

On Saturday, I got up in the morning and met up with friends from the night before for some breakfast at Veritable Quandry. Hit the festival from noon til around 2:00 and then headed over for the annual cigar and beer industry event at the Pilsner Room/Full Sail Brewery. John was pouring a mighty fine 10 year old barleywine.

Kilted Brewer must have called while I was there but I didn't hear my phone so we never hooked up. EvilTOJ managed to make it however and we walked up to Bailey's Taproom for a Fort George Barrel Aged Raspberry Wit while my friends checked out the talent next door at Mary's Club.

I'll post some pics later.
