Portland Beer Week the 11-day (June 8th-18th) event that I have been involved in for seven years and founded by Ezra Johnson-Greenough of the New School Beer Blog officially starts today. My first year of Portland Beer Week I put together a Sushi and Beer Pairing event at Roscoes with my friend Ritch Marvin. The next year I started the rye beer fest. And over the years I have been involved in a number of other events. There are over 100 events going on this year and really something for everyone. Here are 8 must attend events, yes I am involved in a few of these, but I will not lead you astray.
