As I was walking into work this morning, I got stopped by a wave of green shirts and beer mugs. Actually, that wave was this year's Oregon Brewers Festival
starting at 11:30 this morning with a parade led by none other than Mayor Sam Adams
. The parade started at the Deschutes Brewery Public House and made its way down to the Tom McCall Waterfront Park for the festival's opening ceremony.
And no, there was no sign of a repeat of last year's "confrontation"
between the mayor and a keg.
