Portland Brew Festival

For my 30th birthday,  which was actually yesterday,  My wife got me tickets to the Portland Brew Festival.

Down on the Portland Maine waterfront,  there is an old warehouse style building which had all the vendors and brewers lined the walls.   You get your glasses and drink tickets at the door,  then just try anything that you want.  

Some brewers are quite serious

                 You get a booklet where you can keep track of the beers you have tried and what you think.   This was great for me,  one because I love trying new beers,  and two,  because I like to keep notes on the beers that I try anyway!!


The note reads,  "worst of the day, tastes like tires, DUMPED"

I was just a little happy.

By the end of the day,  I had sampled almost 40 beers,  and found some new favorites.   Bringing your pregnant wife to a beer tasting gets some odd looks,  but she was a great sport,  AND a free designated driver.

  1. Belated Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a good time. I guess you couldn't get into too much mischief since the glasses are so small ; )
