For the first time in recorded history, I missed the brew fest.
If I’d gone I would have tried to get there early, like this guy. And left early, before the lines got so long that a obtaining a 3 ounce sample would be a 20 minute ordeal.
But this particular brew fest weekend I had to move house (from N. Mississippi to downtown – from a walkscore of 88 to 100!), so dealing with that stress did not put me in the right state of mind (moving sucks!) to deal with the stress of sneaking out of work early on Thursday or Friday to get some beer before the hoards.
I know I must have missed some great beers . . . can anyone clue me in? I will scour Portland’s beer bars to obtain my own 16 or 20 ounce sample, sans the 20 minute wait.
