Curated by Ezra Johnson-Greenough of The New School and co-hosted by local beer bar and bottle shop, Saraveza, the first Portland Farmhouse and Wild Ales Festival was a glorious testament to rare and one-off saisons, bieres de garde, and beers fermented with funky Brettanomyces and puckery Lactobacillus (read up on both here). 19 breweries brought over 30 different kegs to the festival, several of which have never been served on draft outside their respective home bases.
I sampled as many of them as I could over the two-day festival, including special beers from favorites like 10 Barrel, Pfriem Family Brewers, Solera Brewing, The Commons Brewery, Logsdon Farmhouse Ales, and more. Check out the slideshow for the 8 most memorable brews on tap »
