From the press release:
PORTLAND, Ore. – Jan. 23, 2006 – The long-running Oregon Brewers Festival is celebrating its 19th year by adding an auxiliary event to the schedule. The inaugural Oregon Brewers Festival Blind Tasting & Test, a benefit for the Oregon Blind Commission, will take place on July 26 from 5 to 9 p.m. on the festival grounds at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Tickets cost $40, which includes the 2006 souvenir festival mug, and are limited to 5,000. The event is for ages 21 and older. The Blind Tasting & Test is a prelude to the famed Oregon Brewers Festival, which will run July 27 through 30.
Sounds pretty cool. Hopefully some of my fellow beer bloggers in that area will be attending and reporting on the festival.
