Events Calender

Craft Beer Month finishes with a flourish this weekend (which is actually next month, but who's counting?), with quite a line-up:
  • Concordia Cup, Today through August 2 at the Concordia Ale House. Twelve Double IPAs vie to be Oregon's entry in Beer Brawl III. Taster trays are $12. Full details here.
  • Roots Christmas in July, Friday 6pm. They'll be pouring a 2006 Flemish Red aged for two years in a Pinot Grigio oak barrel, the 2007 Epic Ale and 2008 Festivus. Bring a new toy (for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital) and you’ll be entered into a raffle for a bottle of Roots 08 Epic Ale
  • 15th Annunal Rogue Bones and Brew, Saturday and Sunday, 14th and Flanders. Live music, barbeque, 20+ craft breweries, all to benefit the Oregon Zoo. Full details here.
  • Bailey's 2nd Anniversary Celebration, Saturday noon - 10pm. It's a mini-fest with an amazing line-up of beer (Derek has the list here). Ten bucks gets you a glass and three pours. Full details here.
  • Double Mountain Cookout and Street Party, Saturday noon - 10pm in Hood River. Live music, barbeque, and a full slate of DM beers, including two I am keen to try, Pilsner and Little Red Pils. Full details here.
Surely you can find something amid these lush offerings with which to amuse yourself.

Wha???

I was watching the new last night and three difference channels stated:

Obama -- Bud Light
Biden -- Bucklers (non-Alco)
Gates -- Sam Adams Light
Crowley -- Blue Moon

I would say Gates made the best "patriotic" choice considering Blue Moon is a Coors product brewed in Golden Colorado, but co-owned by Canadian Molson. Adam Adams would be the ONLY American beer of the bunch. I've read that Obama drinks simple light beers and was a big fan of Colt 45. No joke!
