Oregon Brewer’s Festival

On Thursday Andy and I attended the first day of the Oregon Brewers Festival. Each year they kick off the festival with a big parade through downtown Portland.

All the breweries in the region send their own group of representatives.

The 'Hammerheads' from McMennamins

Most of the brewery reps just wear shirts though.

There is a speech and then the official keg is tapped. All the attendees are welcome to sample the keg. Each year, Fred Eckhardt presides over the festival.

We try all sorts of different kinds of beer and take funny photos.
