About 18th Annual Hillsdale Brewfest

Huzzah, Hillsdale Brewfest! It's the original of McMenamins' many beer-related festivals, so it's definitely a good one to check out. Sample up to 20 McMenamins ales and vote for your favorite. (Pace yourselves, lads. And don't forget to eat! This is really super-important!)

Twenty of the finest ales from McMenamins' breweries are sent into battle, their brewers vying for bragging rights, the notorious championship belt and a berth in the annual Oregon Brewers Festival held in downtown Portland in July. Patrons order "trays" of beer samples, arranged from lightest to darkest. It is our guests' official duty to decide who deserves the coveted title. The beers cover the spectrum of brew styles — from hefeweizen to oatmeal stout, barleywine to smoked amber ale and beyond. Each taster casts one ballot that lists his or her top three choices. (And beware the brewers' shameless vote-mongering. Don't say we didn't warn you.)

So head to the Hillsdale Brewery & Public House in February to drink, vote and be merry — and may the best brewery win.
