    The 2014 Beer Wars IPA Fest are this Wednesday at 10 Barrel Brewing in Bend. I will be attending, and will post back afterwards.

    Anyone else going to go?

    I saw that when I was visiting my brother in Bend. I am jealous of you guys! 10 Barrel has got to be one of the coolest breweries I have visited over the years. Bend has really stepped their beer game up.

    Yes, with 6 new breweries on tap scheduled to open soon. That will bring Bend and it's immediate "suburbs" to 26 brewpubs! Pretty darned good for a city of 80,000

    Dirt Farmer, anything of note to report about this event? Which IPA won? What was your favorite? And any word on the new breweries opening in Bend? How can that town support 6 new breweries? Unreal.
    You're so cute internet tough guy. Noogie...Noogie...Noogie.

    I actually had a last minute chance to ride Waldo Lake that day, so I missed out. From what I hear, though, it was not a blind tasting. The locals overwhelmingly voted Bend the winner, but, again, it was not a blind taste test. (Not sure why not??)

    I can hardly wait for the newbies to open up!

    They need to do blind tastings. It's unfair when it isn't. They are doing another one in Portland.

    Yeah. Those Boneyard IPA's are pretty easy to spot by looks alone.
