Holiday Ale Festival

The snow isn’t sticking and the wind hasn’t started up yet and there is still time to go to the Holiday Ale feast today. Tomorrow Sunday the Ale feast starts out with a Brewers Brunch for $30. From 10am to noon. 21 and over, you must have ID. The menu includes: Hair Of The Dog Fred, Scaldis Prestige, Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse , St. Feuillien Triple beers, and cheeses, pastries and fruit. The rest of the festival continues on until 6 pm. It is a very popular festival and very crowded. We went after work Friday with what looked like the rest of Portland getting off work. The beer lines were long. I didn’t want to get back into the long line. Instead of tasting beers like I wanted to I got a mug of beer. Then I found a less crowded place to drink it. I discovered that there were venders selling very nice looking arts and crafts. I drank my beer by the sculptures then left. Mugs are $5, tickets are a dollar each. Tastes are one ticket, mugs of beer 4 tickets. Get great deal but not as cheep as happy hour. Pioneer Courthouse Square 701 SW Sixth Ave Portland, Oregon 97204. Take MAX it stops on both side of the square. www.holidayale.com
