A Weekend in Beervana

For the beer geek around town, this could be a busy weekend. Today is Earth Day, and you might celebrate with a pint of Eel River Earth Thirst DIPA at the Guild Pub. One dollar will go off to the Oregon League of Conservation Voters. The beer was specially brewed to celebrate Earth Day. Then you could head off to the Spring Beer Fest, happening today and tomorrow at the Oregon Convention Center. Or perhaps you would prefer to attend the brewers dinner at Urban Farmer with Fort George. It will feature pairings with five oyster-centric dishes (though the sixth, chocolate cake, comes sans bivalve). Menu here (pdf).Link
On Saturday, the Spring Beer Fest again beckons, and Blazer fans will be pleased to know they'll be showing the game. Another good bet is Brewpublic's Microhopic fest, featuring beers from Portland's wee breweries. (Two are micro, one nano, and one pico.) The venue is Migration.

No rest for the beery on Sunday. Jacob Grier and Ezra Johnson-Greenough go upscale with their third Brewing Up Cocktails event at Spints Alehouse the Grain and Gristle, while Beermongers goes downscale with national Pigs in a Blanket Day. Oakshire beers will be featured in Brewing Up Cocktails, and brewer Matt Van Wyk will be on hand for the event.

So, pick your poison, but carefully: you will have to choose.

Sounds like it would better to stay home and eat my chocolate bunny!
