What better time to leave The Good Life and head one state to the southwest and into the sunny yet somehow still cool (or at least mild) climate of Colorado?

Summer Seasonals Dominate a Revitalized Oregon Brewers Festival

In the weeks leading up to the Oregon Brewers Festival - Brew Fest or OBF for short - there was a lot of controversy about the changes this year: no more plastic mugs and returning to glass, the pour sizes being 3 ounces instead of 4, another day added to the festival, etc. Within an hour of entering the hallowed ground of Portland's beautiful Waterfront Park, all the hubbub died, the taps flowed, the raucous bands enlivened the crowd, and the levity of the moment washed away the critics, leaving just a collection of beer lovers and the objects of their affection.
