WHAT TO DO TODAY

Beginning today at 2pm and lasting through Sunday evening, sample more than 50 seasonal ales and rare vintage brews at Portland’s Annual Holiday Ale Fest in Pioneer Courthouse Square. All sorts of beers–from Belgians and Barleywines to Porters and Stouts–shall be in attendance, and there will be an abundance of food, fine mead, merchandise and drunken louts, too.
