Oregon Brewers Festival Preparation
It's that time of the year again, thank god. The 20th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival is just around the corner. This year, 73 breweries are scheduled to appear and share their wares. If you can't find a beer to fall in love with here, you've mistakenly categorized yourself as a beer lover. Maybe you should try a wine tasting instead.
If you are only in town for the weekend, you should still go, but just be prepared for long, long lines. On the weekends, you can actually see the lines from across the river when you drive by at 70mph on I-5. Again, it's still worth it as long as you know what to expect. Last year, more than 55,000 attended.
The festival is only about 2 blocks from the Oak St. Max station. Driving and parking can be a hassle at this event--especially if you're planning to drive home. If you can, hop on the Max and take it to the festival. It's cheap, safe, sober, and air-conditioned.
