    This was easily the best event I've been to in the last year. My first time visiting Portland too, and the general hospitality throughout the city was pretty awesome. Nice to see so many familiar faces throughout the weekend, especially Saturday night at Sassy's.

    A little late, but figured I'd share a few pix from the O&G social. What a great event. Drinking Tilquin draft while listening to Pierre Tilquin talk about making Tilquin was pretty awesome. I hope I'm lucky enough to score a ticket next year.

    My hands are still sore from shucking oysters, and some other stuff.


    Also, the nerdgasms I had when I saw de Garde, Bokkeryder, and Tilquin walk through my front door were pretty incredible.

    Oh, I guess Lambic.info was there too :)

    Brews 2017 celebration dinner and the start of planning for 2018.

    Thank you all for your support; those who volunteered, were part of the advisory council, attended from near and far, we couldn't have done it without you!

    Now on to next year! What did you love? What would you like to see? What can we do better?

    Cheers!

    I'm tired of letting Forgetfu and SeaWatchman have all the fun...

    TalkBeer is getting involved next year.

    Hard to do recon when you're so rekt that you have to dip out early from the Friday night event.

    In Steve 's defense he had been bar/brewery hopping all day and had an... interesting Airbnb to get back to.

    Had an awesome time last weekend! Saturday was my b-day and I won the 3L Mamouche as a present to myself (sorry Bill) :) I met quite a few people during the event and at the post-auction toast with the Uli blend. I'm sure some of you were TB'ers so let me know on this thread if we met! I'd love to put a face/name to an avatar. Cheers, and looking forward to next year!
