We went to East Burn to attend the 4th annual Buckman-Kerns Brewfest. Neither the Oregonian Newspaper or the event posters stated a time. We figured since East Burn was open for lunch we would try our luck after noon.
We had some delicious fries there. Trinity fries are a mixture of hand-cut russets, sweet potatoes, topped with fried leeks accompanied by roasted tomato aioli. They were freshly fried and not greasy. We were indeed in time to try a few beers. I had a Buckman Wild Rice Pilsner while my wife had a Natian Everyday IPA. Gosh they were good tasting beers. Since the fries were a good size amount and we were not driving we decided to have another. Next I tried the Migration PDX Kolsch and my better half had the Cascade Scarlet Fever IPA. These were good as well. I think I liked the Buckman better just because I was intrigued with wild rice in a beer. All the beers went well with the fries. It was certainly a pleasant way to spend the afternoon. I liked the idea of trying several different Portland beers in one place.
Different beers were served upstairs while several others were served downstairs.
Several Breweries were represented Cascade, Natian, Buckman, Migration, Coalition, Basecamp, Lucky Lab, and Burnside.
Our server was quick and very attentive but not intrusive.
