Portland Holiday Ale Festival 2009

For obvious reasons*, this is a photo from the Holiday Ale Festival. This is one of my top three favorite Portland beer events of the year. First of all, it's cold and rainy: my favorite kind of weather. Second, these beers are big and unique: my favorite kind of beer. And third, I can hop on the Max to get to and from the festival: my favorite kind of festival mode of transportation. This is a great big celebration of great big beers, we'll see you there!

* for those who didn't find this photo obvious: The 2011 Holiday Ale Festival kicks off this Wednesday.
