Holiday Ale Festival scheduled for Dec. 1-4 in Portland, OR.

The Holiday Ale Festival, to be held in December in Portland, OR, is billed as "the only beer festival in the Northwest to be held outdoors in the dark, cold and often wet month of December." This year the event will open one day early, extend its hours, and offer more than 30 potent winter beers. The 10th annual festival will begin on Thursday, Dec. 1, and continue through Sunday, Dec. 4 at Pioneer Courthouse Square. Admission into the venue is free. A one-time purchase 2005 souvenir mug, required for tasting beer, costs $4. At the main bar, featuring two-dozen regional winter ales, patrons pay $4 for each mug of beer or $1 for a taste. At the "Big Boy Bar" there will be 10 exclusive beers, many of them imports, which will only be served in taster sizes for $4. The Holiday Ale Festival celebrates the release of regional craft-brewed winter brews. Festival goers will take shelter under a large clear tent, heated by gas heating units.
