The Oregon Brewers Festival on the waterfront here in Portland is always a blast.  There are tons of people outside getting twisted on the river.  What better way to spend a summer weekend? 

Portland Oregon is the craft beer capital of the United States.  This is most likely because the surrounding mountains provide fresh spring water to the area and all of the local brewers.  Local water plays a significant role in the brewing process and the Portland area has taken full advantage.  Every beer on our top 10 list is a must, but Green Flash’s Le Freak stole the show!
