Holiday Ale Festival Starts Wednesday!

November 29th, 2010

There’s no better way, in our humble opinion, to ring in the holiday season in true Portland-style than with a good ol’ fashioned beer festival. If you agree then you’re in luck because on Wednesday, December 1st, the Holiday Ale Festival kicks off in Pioneer Courthouse Square. The festival doors will open at 2:00 p.m. and close at 10:00 p.m., and runs through December 5th. And just in case you were picturing a bunch of burly men dressed in flannel huddled around a keg in the cold, this is not your grandfather’s winter ale festival. There is a large heated tent with a clear top, all the better to appreciate the holiday lights, good food, and 50 special you-can’t-get-these-from-your-local-grocery-store ales for your sampling pleasure.
