Vegan Beer and Food Festival – Portland 2015

Vegan Beer and Food Festival - Portland

This must be one of the best Vegan events I have had the opportunity to enjoy in Portland for being Vegan.  Well setup, excellent mix of entertainment, food and beverage all on the water front in a convenient location for public transit.  Top that, the weather was amazing.  There were so many beers, food vendors, wears, and everything else in between.  Luckily, I’m a stout and porter guy so I knew my selections would be limited to just a few beers available – hence I go for the big glass so I don’t waste time in line.  Both the Bison Organic Chocolate Stout and the Golden road Almond milk stout were exceptional.  I favored the almond milk stout because of it’s smooth rich body and soft tones.

After a few good beers and time with friends I decided to feed the need – the need for a Mississippi bowl.  I have been enjoying this layered Portland treat for years ever since the cart opened and having it at the festival just made things right.  To finish it off – not one, but two oh so good raw vegan blueberry cheesecakes.

To finish off the event is this beautiful expression of community and the wonderfully unique diversity the community embodies.  I can’t wait for the next one.
