The 17th annual Holiday Ale Festival starts Wednesday at Pioneer Courthouse Square in downtown Portland and runs through Sunday. More than 50 beers will be available to sample, and organizers say the brews are special to the festival.
While the festival is held outdoors, organizers say attendees will be kept warm and dry underneath tents covering Pioneer Courthouse Square. Gas heaters will also be used to warm people up.
Beer is not all that will be served at the festival. Food will also be available for attendees. They can also buy festival merchandise and a coat check will be on site to help the crowd.
Those wishing to attend the festival must be at least 21 years of age. Admission is $30 which includes a 2012 tasting mug and 10 taster tickets. More beer tickets can be purchased for $1 each. Designated drivers in a party of two or more can buy a wristband for $5. That includes Crater Lake Root Beer or bottled water.
