Written by

Imagine a collective of people from all walks of life, gathering together in a city with 40 microbreweries, with one commonality, and that is their love for beer.

As I arrived at the hotel in Portland on Friday evening, I entered the Alaska room where the Night of Many Bottles was held.  It was a fitting title for the night.
