Today I look forward to checking out the 23rd Annual Spring Beer & Wine Festival. I have not gone in a few years. The fest started yesterday and continues today from noon until 10 pm at the Oregon Convention Center (777 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland, OR 97232). What makes this festival unique is the variety of food and drink offerings available. At the Spring Beer And Wine Festival, you will find beer, cider, mead, wine, spirits and a variety of artisan foods. I always enjoy the variety of chocolates and cheeses available at the festival.
