    Oregon Brewers Festival

    The Festival started yesterday and I walked in the opening parade. Big fun, brass marching band and the works!
    There were 85 breweries represented, many bringing brews made specially for this event.

    I'd get really drunk at Trailer #8. Like, "puke-in-my-girlfriend's-purse" drunk.

    Take me to Trailer 10 please. Dogfish Head, Rogue, Mad River and Stone in one place? Must be close to what heaven serves.

    You know it really is with all those German immigrants that settled in the hill country. At least you got Shiner Bock.

    Shiner is a good beer-when-you-just-need-a-beer type, but I've had like 10 different types of Shiners, and with the exception of Ruby Redbird(grapefruit beer...yum), they all taste the same!

    There are days when I really miss Portland. There's a lot to be said for having four microbreweries within a few minutes walk or ride from the house.
