Doug Henderson will probably jump on this, as I think he's on the list,
and he's also in charge of lining up volunteers for the Festival. It is
scheduled (again) for the third weekend in July. What I heard last
night from Steelhead Brewery's Teri Fahrendorf was that there would be
50 breweries represented this year. Without a hint of Portland
chauvinism I would not hesitate to say that this is the biggest and best
microbrewery/brewpub festival in the US and well worth attending.
Thousands do! The weather has always been perfect, and the waterfront
site makes for fun people watching.

According to the Judges' List this is Doug's mail stop:


Contact him if you're interested in working at the Festival. Volunteers
pour beer but don't need to answer questions. Shifts are 4 hours, and
for this you get a free festival mug, a t-shirt different from those on
sale, and a few free beers. You also get to gawp at the crowds.
