Spring Beer Fest in Portland

alt.portland points to the Spring Beer & Wine Fest coming up in just two weeks, April 14 and 15, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. Sounds like it might be a good visit, similar to the big Oregon Brewers Festival:

  • 12 noon til 11 pm
  • Admission is free from 12 til 2 pm, after which it’s $5.
  • Taster tokens are $1 each.
  • Souvenir beer glass: $6
  • Plastic beer mug: $3

There will be 40 breweries present, most with two beers to sample. Nice! Though frankly, it looks like many of the breweries (the ones I’m familiar with, anyway) are bringing their conventional beers. Seems like it’d be a good opportunity to present some unique brews…

And for wine lovers it looks like there will be 12 wineries represented. And don’t forget food and music.

Anyone going?
