127 - Most IBUs at the fest (Laughing Dog Alphadog)
---8 - Minimum years in a row 21st Amendment Brewery brought Watermelon Wheat
Much, much more to come of OBF-related posting.


  1. Oops. Do you mean "I offer you the Oregon Brewers Festival?"

  2. I count 4 Pilsners.
    - Full Sail Brewing Co / Full Sail Ltd 03
    - North Coast Brewing Co / Scrimshaw
    - Trumer Brauerei / Trumer Pils
    - Victory Brewing Co / Victory Prima Pils

    Albeit, I was disappointed with the 6'er of Scrimshaw 12 oz. bottles, June 2009. Perhaps, a 'mild / watery' batch. I will give it another try.
