Oh my it has been far too long since I have posted! The "red ale" came out more brown coloured than I had intended - clearly used too much dark malt. However, it tastes great and is quite drinkable. So I have christened it as either my browny red ale, or my reddy brown ale. Either way.
Last weekend Sith@Heart and I travelled to Portland for the Oregon Brewers Festival. Beer wise it is an amazing city, and the festival is spectacular. Outdoors, great craft beers, packed full of beer lovers, what is not too like. Here are some photos of the awesomeness.
(I should also add we hit some amazing pubs - The Horse Brass, Bailey's, the Deschutes Brewery (Portland) and the Lucky Labrador)
