If organic beer is your thing, Portland, OR, is your place.
The 3rd annual North American Organic Brewers Festival, being advertised as the world's largest such event, is scheduled for June 8-9 at Overlook Park in North Portland.
More than two dozen breweries from the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, Wisconsin, Vermont, Germany, England and Belgium will be represented. Perhaps chief among them will be Pinkus Mueller, a brewery in Munster, Germany, which created the world's first commercial organic beer in 1980, and now brews more than a half-million gallons of it annually.
Admission to the event is free. Sampling mugs are $5 each, taste tickets $1 each.
