Portland Beer Festival

It costs just $4 to buy your own mug, then it’s only $4 per beer after that–and there are 72 varieties of beer on tap, so you’d better get cracking.

Portland, Oregon will be holding its 19th annual Brewers Festival July 27-30 this year.  Over 50,000 beer lovers will be at hand to deeply inhale the aromatic hops of their beer before gently sipping the elixir and allowing it to tenderly roll across their tongues to awaken their taste buds–after which they will spit it into a bucket, rinse their palate, and move on to the next sample. 

Or, more than likely, they will simply pound that mutha!
