With August upon us it means that the Oregon Brewers Festival has come to an end. If you made it to the festival, chances are you most likely had a good time (unless you happened to come Saturday evening when the lines were crazy long) and drank some outstanding beers.
For me, I was at my booth most of the time during all 5 days promoting my Beer Lover’s Oregon book and talking to a ton of people about craft beer in the state.
Needless to say I met a lot of amazing people. I’ve said it before, but craft beer fans and industry folk are some of the friendliest and most down to earth people I’ve met and hung out with. The fantastic people I talked to made being there 5 days in a row an absolute blast (drinking beer helped as well).
