Every year, the last full weekend in July. The Oregon Brewer’s Festival. 72 beers from nearly as many breweries in Oregon, Washington, California, Alaska, Hawaii, even from as far away as Delaware.
It’s also the hottest weekend of the year so far. We’re wilting under 100°-plus heat.
I have a strategy. For every two or three 2oz tastes of beer, drink a full glass of water. This also means frequent trips to the Porta-johns, which is where wearing a skirt comes in handy.
I have calculated that it will be impractical for me to taste every one of the 72 beers. Sigh.
