Welcome to the 21st AnnuAl

oregon BreWers FestivAl!

the good old Days Are Back Again
The Roaring Twenties: The phrase evokes colorful images of an era of flappers, jazz clubs and art deco . But one of the darker aspects looming throughout that decade was the 18th Amendment, better known as Prohibition, which made illegal the manufacture, distribution, and sale of alcoholic beverages . It wasn’t until Dec . 5, 1933, that the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, officially repealing the 18th Amendment . President Roosevelt signed the proclamation ending Prohibition on December 5, 1933 at 7 pm EST (4 pm PST) . Millions of gallons of beer began to flow as society celebrated the end of more than a decade of repression . As the Oregon Brewers Festival (OBF) turns 21 this year, the event fondly toasts to the history of the 21st Amendment, and encourages all attendees to raise their mugs each day at 4 pm and do the same . The OBF is one of the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious craft beer festivals . Situated on the west bank of the Willamette River, with towering Mt . Hood as a backdrop, it is the premier venue for anyone who loves craft beer . With a laid back attitude and scores of award-winning beers, the OBF captures the essence of Portland, and is the keystone event of Oregon Craft Beer Month . The OBF exists to provide an opportunity to sample and learn about a variety of craft beer styles from across the country . Styles range from ambers, Belgians, reds, pilsners and bocks to browns, pales, porters, stouts and wheat beers . This year’s lineup offers a superior balance of styles, with something for just about every taste . Nearly one-third of the breweries showcased at this year’s event were medal winners at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival . The festival’s focus is craft beer, but there’s more than sampling involved . Attendees can enjoy an eclectic display of beer memorabilia, meet beer writers, sign up to become a SNOB, or learn how to homebrew with the Oregon Brew Crew . The Portland Tribune Stage showcases some of the best high-energy talent the Northwest has to offer (see a complete schedule inside) . There’s lots of delicious food, and a root beer garden where minors and designated drivers can enjoy complimentary cups of Crater Lake handcrafted soda . After all these years, we’ve finally come “of age .” Thanks to all of you for helping us celebrate the 21st annual Oregon Brewers Festival . Cheers!

respecting Beer, respecting Youth
Here at the Oregon Brewers Festival, we love beer . We also respect beer . The OBF promotes responsible drinking, and as a result, we have responsible attendees who come together to celebrate our local culture . This is why we have a long-standing history of being a family-friendly event . We will always strive to allow minors into our event when accompanied by a parent . We also believe in educating minors and parents about the potential dangers of underage drinking . As such, we are pleased to have with us members of the Wallowa Valley Together Project, including high-school students of TADA (Teens Against Drugs & Alcohol), promoting their “0b421” campaign . Located in the tiny town of Enterprise, Oregon, the Wallowa Valley Together Project exists to support efforts that promote healthy communities . Its purpose is to provide citizens with the necessary tools to create lasting, effective change within families, schools, neighborhoods, and communities . Needing to find a way to provide information and increase awareness locally to multiple target populations about the potential dangers, risks, and unhealthy community norms associated with underage drinking, WVTP developed the “none before 21” campaign . Local high school and elementary students helped with designing a single logo that would quickly communicate the message, look appealing, and be applicable to all audiences . Under the direction of Andrea Tyler, the campaign has been hugely successful, and has spawned an online store carrying a complete line of “0b421” items, from mouse pads to java jackets and car magnets to dog tags . “We are confident that together we can make tremendous strides in reducing underage drinking and the damage it causes youth, families, schools, and communities,” says Tyler . You can learn more about the WVTP and view some of its cool “0b421” items at the Root Beer Garden in the North end of the park . For more information, visit www .wvtp .org .

oregon Brewers Festival supports Diversity & inclusion
Each year, the Oregon Brewers Festival selects a deserving organization for which to make a contribution . This year, the Festival is pleased to pledge a donation of $10,000 to the Oregon Business Leadership Network (OBLN), a Portland-based organization that works to teach diversity and inclusion . The OBLN is an employer-led organization that seeks to improve employment prospects and consumer choices for people with disabilities by raising employer awareness about the positive benefits to business for actively including qualified people with disabilities in the workforce and as consumers . Whether it be because of the shrinking size of traditional labor pools, the need to comply with legislation, the recognition of the importance of minority customer bases, or the awareness that good talent comes in all kinds of different packages, most forward-thinking companies are investing in efforts to diversify their workforces - to find effective ways to include and accommodate people from non-traditional sources of talent . While women and visible minorities were some of the first groups to benefit from these more inclusionary hiring practices, many other groups, including people with disabilities, are adding new colors to the diversity spectrum . The OBLN provides Oregon businesses with networking opportunities, education, and resources to effectively increase understanding and awareness of disability issues in the workplace . The organization offers workshops, trainings, tools and resources to make it easier for employers to support current employees with disabilities as well as those who become diagnosed with a disability during their working years . The OBLN can also help recruit qualified candidates with disabilities and provide a comfortable and supportive workplace for everyone . To learn more about the OBLN, call 503-281-1424 or visit http://www.obln.org/ .

Blogging Beer
With so many craft breweries in the U .S ., tastings, brewer meetups, beer dinners and pairings can happen at the drop of a hop cone . Even the most diligent of beer aficionados can barely keep up . So how does a beer fan keep in the know? Enter the beer blog . Blogs can range from very personal diaries to community discourses and event announcements, depending on the subject matter and author . There are literally hundreds of blogs in the Internet with a focus on craft beer . The subject matter on these blogs can range from notations on new beer releases to what happened to the pub down the street . Most allow comments from readers so that lively discussion is encouraged, creating an environment in which new information spews forth more vociferously than an uncapped bottle of shaken beer – and all you need to access this community is a computer and the Internet . We couldn’t begin to list all of the beer blogs out there, but here is a sampler tray of some of our favorites: A good Beer Blog http://beerblog .genx40 .com/ Appellation Beer http://appellationbeer .com/blog/ A Pint of Knowledge http://apintofknowledge .wordpress .com/ Beaumont’s Beer Blog http://www .thatsthespirit .com/en/blog/ Beer 4 chicks http://www .beer4chicks .com/ the Beer geek http://www .thebeergeek .com/ the Beer here http://blog .oregonlive .com/thebeerhere/ Beervana http://beervana .blogspot .com/ Beer northwest http://beernorthwest .blogspot .com/ Beer retard http://beer-retard .livejournal .com/ Blog sober: the champagne of Blogs http://www .bsbrewing .com/blog/ the Brew site http://www .thebrewsite .com/

obscure goes mainstream with the collaborator Project
In 1997, a group of homebrewers was quaffing some beers with Rob Widmer at Widmer Bros . Brewing Co . in Portland . The discussion turned to beer styles that weren’t represented among the craft brewers in America . The brewers bemoaned the fact that they had to rely on European imports for esoteric styles . The Widmer brothers, Kurt and Rob – who both began their career as homebrewers – saw a unique opportunity . They went on to challenge the Oregon Brew Crew homebrewing club to hold an annual competition, in which the best of the club’s beers, regardless of style, would be brewed and served by Widmer Bros . Brewing . The concept was simple: The Oregon Brew Crew would supply the creativity, while Widmer would provide the industry expertise to take a homebrew recipe and make it in a commercial facility . The cooperative project became known as Collaborator . The first beer to be selected, a Milk Stout, was an appropriately collaborative effort by Ken Bietschek, Jeff Brinlee and Jeff Langleythat . Commercially brewed by Widmer, it was served in the summer of 1998 as the Collaborator Stout and was an instant success . Over the years, this Collaborator beer has been brewed more often than all of the subsequent Collaborator beers combined . Its popularity was further boosted when it became the American Homebrewing Association’s “Big Brew” recipe for National Homebrew Day in 1999 . In 2004, Widmer tweaked the original recipe and introduced the Collaborator Milk Stout as Snow Plow Stout, its annual winter seasonal . Snow Plow went on to win a gold medal at the 2002 and 2004 Great American Beer Festival . The Collaborator project has been going strong for a decade, producing such memorable products as Hallucinator, Pre-Prohibition Lager, Saison Cristophe, Zephyr Kölsch, Rawkin Bock, and Hopnosis . Collaborator beers are available at the Widmer Gasthaus and a handful of supporting pubs (with the exception of Snowplow, available in retail locations seasonally) . From every barrel of Collaborator beer sold, $1 is donated to the Bob McCracken Scholarship Fund, which supports students at the Oregon State University Fermentation Science program under the direction of Dr . Thomas Shellhammer . This scholarship was set up by the Oregon Brew Crew in memory of a past club president to ensure that future Oregon brewers get a thorough education . You are fortunate enough to be able to taste a Collaborator beer right here at the Oregon Brewers Festival (although be warned, it is usually one of the first beers to run out) . The 2008 Oregon Brewers Festival Collaborator beer is Resurrection Rye, a classic American pale ale that celebrates the communion of hops and rye . Created by Portland homebrewer Patrick Miller, Resurrection Rye features the distinct piney and spicy flavor of rye paired with big Northwest hops that quickly command your attention . This brew weighs in at 6 .6% abv, and with 80 bittering units, it’s not for the faint of palate . Resurrection Rye is located at the northernmost tap of trailer number four in the south end of the park . Get some while you can!

Do You Know Bob Farrell?
Chances are you do if you've been to any beer festival in Portland . You probably saw him as he checked in as a volunteer at the Spring Beer & Wine Fest . You no doubt have purchased tokens from him at the Oregon Brewers Festival . You might even have giggled at his antics when he played Santa Claus at the Holiday Ale Festival . But no matter what season or reason, Bob Farrell has been an integral part of your fun . The ultimate volunteer, Bob always works in the background -- definitely not quietly if you're around him, but certainly consistently and efficiently . Never one to bask in the ordinary, Bob is always right at his covolunteers' shoulders with a quick (usually off-color and always funny) story or practical joke . A man with not only a nefarious sense of humor, but an equally wicked attention for detail, Bob, as former president of the Oregon Brew Crew homebrew club, can recite complete passages of the group's bylaws -- just in case of an emergency . Bob also was the first recipient of -- and inspiration for -- the coveted "Orange Bung,” awarded to an exemplary OBC volunteer each year . Bob is a dyed-in-the-wool fan of the Cleveland Indians -- as opposed to the "Cleveland Baseball Team" -- and an award-winning mead-maker -- creating rather unconventional meads that might include such adjuncts as Atomic Fireball candies, merlot and cranberries, or bourbon . It's safe to say that if you have been to a beer festival in Portland, Bob has made your beer experience a little better . For many of us, Bob is a whole lot more -- he's a funny, energetic, ornery friend, fellow homebrewer and co-volunteer . We raise a glass today to Bob Farrell .

Broadly Defined Beer styles
By noel Blake Amber ale is a general term used to describe copper-colored ales or lagers, which are more full-bodied than golden ales, often with a medium maltiness and moderate to strong hoppy bitterness . Belgian ales are an entire universe of beer from the most diverse brewing tradition in the world . They are typically complex and harmoniously balanced . Bocks are somewhat strong lagers with a pronounced malt character . A maibock is pale in color and has a somewhat more prominent hop character than a dark, rich doppelbock . Brown ales are malty, with a coffee-like flavor and a pleasing nuttiness . They may also be somewhat sweet or hoppy . cream ales are generally light colored and mild, lagered at cold temperatures or combined with a lager . esB stands for Extra Special Bitter . These traditional English-style ales feature a wellbalanced hoppiness and sweet maltiness . Fruit and honey Beers are usually very light-bodied ales with fresh fruit or honey added . They should be delicate, and therefore low in hops . The fruit flavor should be fresh, vibrant, and easily identifiable . Honey adds subtle flowery undertones and a honey flavor . Fruit and honey ferment very well, so these beers should not be overly sweet, but may present some malt flavor and apparent sweetness due to low bitterness . golden ales typically have an appearance similar to that of a Pilsner . Malt character is subdued and the hop profile ranges from spicy to citrus; common hop additions include Styrian Golding and Cascade . india Pale Ales, usually known as IPAs, were originally pale ales brewed extra strong and hoppy for shipment to the English colonies in India . American brewers are notorious hopheads, and they often use the IPA to show off their hopping prowess . IPAs should have a pronounced fruity or earthy hop aroma and flavor . A rich body from Pale malts, and sometimes Caramel malts, should be present as a foil for the hop flavor . They are often intensely bitter, and have a dry finish . Imperial IPAs are even stronger and hoppier . Kölsch is a pale, dry German ale that originated in the city of Cologne (Köln) . This style is light-bodied and refreshing . Although not bitter, Kölsch may present flowery flavors from subtle use of German hops . The malt flavors are delicate and sometimes reminiscent of Chardonnay .

18

lagers are malty and light-bodied with predominant flavors of toast and caramel . Pale Ales are based on the English bitter style, and are often not all that pale . They may encompass a wide range of types such as Golden, Amber, Red, or ESB . Pale Ales are characterized by yeast varieties that give fruity aromas, and may be either mildly or well hopped . Hops are usually apparent in the aroma, flavor, and the bitterness . Darker versions have caramel flavors from dark malts, and are usually more hopped than golden ales . Pilsners are pale straw to deep gold in color . The traditional German and Czech styles represented at the festival are crisp lagers with a smooth malty flavor . They are often well hopped with floral and spicy European hops such as Hallertau and Saaz . However, the hops should not overwhelm the malt flavor . The finish is clean and often fairly bitter . Porters are complex, dark, strongly flavored ales that are said to take their name from the dockhands for whom they were originally brewed . Porters are similar to stouts but without the bitterness . red ales are richly flavored, sweet, hoppy beers . They usually feature a reddish or orange color and a sweet malt flavor from the use of caramel malts, and a strong hop character often including grassy notes from dry-hopping . stouts are dark brown to inky black ales that feature the rich flavors of roasted malts that include chocolate, coffee, toffee, and charcoal . They can be light-bodied such as draft Guinness, or rich and thick . Although hop flavor and aroma are low, they sometimes display a noticeable bitterness from both hops and roasted grains . strong ale is a catchall style category for beers from seven-percent alcohol by volume and above . Characteristics will greatly vary, with some sharing similarities with Barleywines and Old Ales . Barrel aging is certainly not out of the question . Wheat beers are either in the Bavarian or American style . Compared to a Belgian Wit, the use of malted wheat in a Bavarian Weizen gives a more pronounced bready wheat flavor, and they are not spiced . They may be filtered and clear (“kristall”) or unfiltered and hazy (“hefe”) . The most remarkable aspect of these beers is the traditional yeast, which gives pronounced flavors of clove and banana . American interpretations may substitute hop flavors for the Bavarian yeast flavors . American wheat beers have a neutral yeast character that is often replaced by a gentle hop aroma . Wit is a wonderful summer wheat ale style from Belgium, sometimes referred to as a “white beer .” The use of unmalted wheat gives it a light body and a hazy, whitish color . These beers are usually spiced with coriander, with its characteristic grainy, citrus, and minty undertones, and orange peel, which gives a slightly bitter, tea-like palate . Other spices may be added, but hops are always very low .

get schooled in the World of Beer
Beer is made from water, yeast, malt and hops . Sounds simple enough . Yet there’s a lot to learn about beer: What exactly are hops? How do you brew beer? What is a Beer Snob? At the Oregon Brewers Festival, industry members and fans of the industry come together to celebrate and honor the revered beverage, and share their knowledge with those thirsty to learn more . Visit these organizations at the Festival for a real beer education .

oregon Brewers guild
In the early 1990s several local brewers met informally to discuss common issues, problems and opportunities . In 1992, this group evolved into the Oregon Brewers Guild, a dynamic trade organization that represents a majority of the state's craft breweries . Its primary mission is to promote the common interests of the members and the brewing industry in Oregon by supporting the marketing and promotional efforts of Oregon's breweries, and by educating beer enthusiasts about Oregon's indigenous craft beers . The Guild is also very involved with legislative work .

cascade Breweriana Association
In 1910, a brewer in Montana approached the American Can Company about canning beer, but it was not feasible at the time . In wasn’t until 25 years later that the beer can was introduced . The very first beer to ever sell in a can was Krueger's Ale and Krueger's Beer, sold in Richmond, Virginia in 1935 . It was an immediate success . Later than year, Pabst became the first major brewer to can, with its Pabst "Export" Beer . There is a local club dedicated to the collecting and enjoying of beer memorabilia . Founded in 1977, the Cascade Breweriana Association is comprised of more than 200 members who collect a vast array of items . One member has 5,000 beer bottles while another has 4,000 beer cans . One specializes in pre-prohibition brewery advertising, while others collect neons, signs, mirrors, crowns, steins, glasses, trays, coasters, and the like . At the festival, many of the CBA members will have their breweriana on display . www.cascadebeer.com

Founded in 1979, its members are brewers of all experience levels, from the extract brewer, just finishing his or her first batch, to brewers turned professional with successful microbreweries . The group’s monthly meetings, workshops and classes are great places to learn more about beer, brewing, judging and history . A not-for-profit organization, the Oregon Brew Crew donates beer books to local libraries, coordinates volunteers for numerous beer events in Portland such as the Oregon Brewers Festival, and supports the Bob McCracken Scholarship Fund for Oregon State University’s Fermentation Science students . www.oregonbrewcrew.com

oregon hop growers Association
Oregon is the second largest hop growing state in the nation behind Washington State, producing 16 percent of the nation's hops and four percent of the world's hops . Oregon's mild climate, similar to that of Europe's growing regions, is ideal for producing plentiful hop crops . Breweries throughout the United States and the world look to Oregon for hops that will satisfy the tastes of today's sophisticated beer drinker . Twenty-two different hop varieties are grown: The two most popular are Nugget and Willamette, both of which were developed in the United States under the direction of the USDA . Fourteen varieties of hops are grown in the Willamette Valley, which makes brewing freshhops beer (made from hops picked within the previous 24 hours) a sure thing for local brewmasters . Look for these beers in September and October . www.oregonhops.org

Beer media

the Buzz Beer
The Buzz Beer . What is it and who defines it? It happens every year at the Oregon Brewers Festival . Eager beer drinkers eavesdrop on each other hoping to learn just which beer is acclaimed the Buzz Beer . Is it a true-to-style Weizen or a bitter, but balanced IPA? Or, is it perhaps a specialty beer brewed just for the festival? Can it be predicted before the festival by looking at the participating breweries? Who decides? The Buzz Beer seems to arise early in the festival, perhaps in the first few hours . True beer cognoscenti quickly decide which beer is the “must drink” of the festival . From that point on, perhaps on Friday afternoon, the word spreads through the tents and the shaded lawn areas about the beer you simply have to drink . Once determined, it can be a harrowing experience getting your tokens in the right basket . First, there are the whispers and the shouts about where to find the Buzz Beer . Festival guests who don’t overhear the discussions can look for the longest lines at the six beer trailers . That special beer is bound to be poured where the lines stretch back into the tents and drinkers are walking out with a mug in each hand . Once you know the Buzz Beer, there really is no sense in waiting . Many eager festival guests have waited to fill their mug with Buzz Beer, only to learn that it was gone . When you hear about the Buzz Beer, make sure you have plenty of tokens and get in line . It is helpful to read the program and look at the Beer-O-Meter, but the Buzz Beer defies conventional wisdom . It is never of one style or of one type . It is defined and decided on-site . Choosing it is democratic . It is proclaimed by acclamation of the Oregon Brewers Festival drinking public, though no quorum seems to be required . No public disclosure laws are required to notify beer lovers . The word spreads like gossip . Which beer will achieve the distinction of Buzz Beer and join the fraternity of the greats? No one yet knows . But, keep your ears and eyes open . Listen for the murmurs about a beer that just seems one step ahead of the rest . Look for streams of festival guests all headed in one direction, except those headed to the Porta-Potties . And be ready . When the Buzz Beer is determined, only those who act immediately will enjoy its pleasures .

Today Allagash remains one of the few breweries in the country that brews only Belgian-style beers .

This blonde won’t break your heart, and that color’s not from peroxide . German two-row and Cara-Helles malts and some flaked oats give this beer its malty character and, of course, great body . The judges seem to agree, as they gave this beer first place honors in the 2007 West Coast Brew Fest for the pale ale category . According to the Blue Frog brewers, the secret to the great taste of their ales is lots of great music and just enough Led Zeppelin to keep the yeast happy and active .
