Oregon’s Zwickelmania – Craft Sampling Madness

Being an ACB correspondent definitely has its benefits: entry into festivals, abundant free samples, occasional brewery swag, a guilt-free excuse for (polite) public drunkenness. Yet when you're tasked with imbibing as many samples as possible within a defined time limit, things can get a little challenging... like social skills and such. Having survived my first summer of Oregon beer festivals, I now feel like a veteran and it was once again time to mercilessly punish my liver the best way I know how to: Zwickelmania 2014.

I love thinking about all the milestones -- my first live brewer interview (Backlash), my first tap takeover (Stoddards), and my first craft event, reporting on the music, food and people that made 2013's Brewers Helping Neighbors a success.
