Oregon Garden Brewfest: The beer lineup

Oregon Garden BrewfestThe Oregon Garden Brewfest over in Silverton this month is bigger than ever before, hosting 62 breweries (and meaderies and cideries) that will be pouring at least 125 beers (and meads and ciders)—that’s a stunning amount of beers represented, and the number of breweries is approaching Oregon Brewers Festival levels.

What I like about this is, it’s a chance to try some of the lesser-known and newer Oregon breweries, like Calapooia, Falling Sky, Gilgamesh, Old Town, Pale Horse, Rusty Truck, Santiam, and Sasquatch. And—this is a bit of a coup but they have Bend’s newest brewery, Rat Hole, in this list!

It’s going to be tough to decide what to drink! There’s quite a number here I haven’t tried. Definitely looking forward to it.
