The Countdown to BrewFest Begins!

July 15, 2010

It’s that time of year again, my dear friends. The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. And the Oregon Brewers Festival is just around the corner. If you’ve never been, BrewFest is best explained by the numbers:

  • 23: number of years Oregon Brewers Festival has been celebrating craft breweries
  • 4: number of beer-filled festival days (July 22-25)
  • 2: number of tents (North and South)
  • 6: number of participating restaurants on site
  • 81: number of beers from across this great country served (including many from our amazing state)
  • 24: number of hours it takes to recover

I’m a huge fan of attending during the weekdays, if you can swing it. The lines are much shorter, and we always enjoy having a little extra time to chat with the pourers and our fellow beer drinkers – which is a major part of the fun.

Don’t worry about purchasing mugs and tokens in advance, since the lines are never that bad  (if you really want to, click here for places to buy). If you’re a returning BrewFest-er, don’t bother bringing last year’s mug, since they won’t let you use it. You can, however, use tokens from years past, something to remember if you end the weekend with some extras (though we never do).

Keep an eye out for more BrewFest posts as the countdown continues!
