Live from PIB 2008

In a few days I'll do a recap of the 2008 Portland International Brewfest, but today I'm experimenting with posting live via cell phone.

Each year it seems like there is one beer at the PIB that sticks in my mind. Something I never had before that really opens my eyes. Last year it was Eel River Triple Exultation; a couple years ago it was de Dolle's Belgian Stout. What will it be for 2008?

And the answer is... Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza. Dry and yeasty, just delicious.

Go to the festival, have a good time!


  1. Bill, is that a photo of the Oro de Calabaza? If it is, I poured that for YOU! Glad you had your eyes opened...

  2. Brian, if you keep volunteering right behind the beers I want, we're going to be seeing a lot of one another. You also poured me a Ft. George Wit at the Organic fest.

    What are you going to volunteer for at the OBF? Pliny the Elder?

  3. Two days hence, my good man, and we'll be engaging in that fine hobby up in your neck of the woods!

  4. Hey, that photo's composition is exactly like one I took. Great minds think alike! (I had the Oro, too--it was nice.

  5. Po: it's more than a hobby, though less than a career.

    Jeff: great minds do think alike; I just wish the picture quality was more like yours. Ah well, cell phones...
