The Portland International Beerfest starts tomorrow, and it looks to be the best one in years. Organizers have done a great job of finding new and obscure beers--or obscure beers from famous breweries. Many of the classics are there, which is good: every year newbies should be able to find the standards for style. But there are also beers like Dupont's Avril, a low-alcohol table beer. It's going to take me a while to get through these, but I'll have a post up later today or tomorrow with a list of the beers that interest me. Meanwhile, go have a look at the beer list and see what grabs you.
