PORTLAND, OREGON – Body. Aroma. Mouthfeel. The characteristics of which most things are judged, beer being no exception. And as proven by this year’s Great American Nano Fest, size is not important.
The Great American Nano Fest – a celebration of all things Nano; breweries, food carts, music, craft vendors, and artists – was held outside the Buckman Botanical Brewery and Green Dragon in southeast Portland. The kid and dog friendly event offered festival goers the latest creations from more than 30 of Oregon’s smallest and most innovative brewers.
Nano brewers at this year’s festival included: Beetje, Ambacht, Coalition, Fire Mountain, Columbia River, Green Dragon Brew Crew, Mt.Emily, Two Kilts, Pale Horse, Occidental, Upright, Boneyard, Flat Tail, Heater Allen, Migration, Beer Valley, Oregon Trail, Natian Brewery, Everybody’s, Big Al, Mutiny and the Chatoe Rogue Farmstead Brewery
The Great American Nano Fest raised $2,000 for the Buckman Arts Focus Elementary School. A big thank you goes to the vendors, breweries, sponsors and attendees for their support.
See you at next year’s festival, August 25 – 26, 2012!
