Vintage Beer Dinner at Le Pigeon w/ Hair of the Dog

It’s been a whirlwind month and I’ve been seriously lagging on keeping  the website up to date. My apologies.

I did want to post some photos from the Vintage Beer Dinner with Hair of the Dog Brewing at Le Pigeon in Portland, OR. This was the first beer dinner I’ve had the privilege to help host and it was an absolute blast. As you beer geeks know, Alan Sprints at Hair of the Dog is the master when it comes to crafting cellar-worthy beers.  Between decades of work and a special knack at picking up what is going to help the beer in the long haul, he’s garnered a well-earned reputation. And to be able to do this at an James Beard award-winning restaurant was beyond special.

Anyways, I let some photo do way more justice to these two craft geniuses than I ever could. Mmmmm, makes me hungry…
