I blame Oregon Beer Awards. If you haven’t experienced OBA be sure to get yourself a ticket next year and prepare for one hell of a night! March seems to be centered around St. Patrick’s Day which is A- OK with me. As a craft beer lover with roughly 65% Irish blood I’ll leave the green beer for someone else as I enjoy more of the truer Irish styles. I’ll be keeping my eye out for an Irish red and maybe a stout or two, keeping them session-able is key to withstanding the all day camaraderie. You can find a glorious BREWVANA bus in the NE Neighborhood St. Paddy’s Day Parade in Sunday, March 17th throwing out all sorts of goodies! Here’s a list of to do’s for the month:
