One more reason we love living in Portland—so many fantastic drink events! In two weeks (August 25-26), the 3rd Annual Great American Distillers Festival will take place at the Gerding Theater in Portland's Pearl District. Craft distillers from around the country will be on hand doing tastings and seminars, and there will also be a fun mixology competition with professional bartenders showcasing their stuff. Tickets are $10, which gets you 3 pours, and then additional pours are $1 each after that. There will also be food and live music, and part of the event's proceeds go back to Portland Center Stage, which is a wonderful theater group. Hope to see you there!
Saturday, Aug 25, 11 a.m-8 p.m. | Sunday, Aug 26, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
$10 per person for 3 pours; $1 per pour thereafter
Mixology Competition: Saturday, 1-4:30 p.m. | Sunday 1-5 p.m.
Gerding Theater: 128 NW 11th Ave. (at Davis), Portland, Ore.
