Bend Brewfest! The reason we are here!
There were four of us in our little group. Lou was Kirby's best man at our wedding 17 years ago....they go way back. So, we called a taxi so we wouldn't have to worry about finding our way there, parking or not having a designated driver to get back home. It worked out so, so well and was only $15 each way with tip.
It was a bright and sunny day and not too crowded - that is because we were there shortly after the gates opened. We purchased a plastic beer mug and some tokens. Each 4 oz taste of brew was one token. There were 170 different beer taps. Yes, you read that correct - 170! How to choose? Well, we love IPA which is big and bold so that was all we tasted.
There were 3 tents of brews and we made our rounds selecting an IPA here and an IPA there. We were in heaven. Kirby is having some knee problems going on and Lou found what appeared to be a good way to wheel him around but security came and took it away.
And with all that beer, you must be wondering what kind of facilities they have. Well, just check this out! And this picture does not show all the toilets!
