WHAT TO DO TODAY

It’s Friday, and you deserve a beer. Actually, you deserve 50 beers. From 11am-10pm today, 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.
