Organic Beer Fest
The North American Organic Beer Festival is this weekend at Overlook Park in Portland. The event, one of the season's best, starts today and continues through Sunday. Overlook park is a lovely setting for the festival and with the explosion in organic ingredients the beer selection and quality should be excellent.
One caveat, however, to be organic in beer you need only to use organic malt not hops. Organic hops are still hard to come by but it would be interesting to know if there are any beers at the festival that use both organic hops and malt.
