OBF Stats

The PIB is done (final review later today), which means we're inside of two weeks to the Oregon Brewers Festival. Having had my first real gander at the beers, here is what I note:
20 - Years since inception
73 - Participating breweries
14 - Participating states

21 - IPAs (six imperial/double)
12 - Belgian-style ales
-9 - Wheat ales (two hefs, four wits, two fruit wheats, one weiss)
-9 - Lagers
-7 - Pale ales
-6 - Pilsners
-6 - Minimum number of years in a row that 21st Amendment Brewery has sent Watermelon Wheat
More to come . . .


  1. Yeah, I noticed they seemed to be heavy in the IPAs this year.

  2. Had to chuckle about the Watermelon Wheat 'streak' from 21st Amendment. Is it time for an intervention/letter-writing campaign? :)
