    I've never gone to this and have a friend I'm meeting in Portland early on the 12th...Is Sasquatch worth the 1.5 hour or so drive south? Do they have a lot of one-off/limited things to try?

    Thanks for any replies!

    At first I was, like, what are you talking about, dude? Sasquatch is north of Portland (in George, WA) and is a music festival --- but with plenty of one-offs. Then, I googled 'Sasquatch beer' and got the brewfest in Eugene. Confusing...

    I haven't been to the brewfest in Eugene, but the music festival is totally worth the drive.

    Thought the same thing myself. Glad to hear the fest in George is solid because that's the one I'm going to this year. :)

    Actually I thought this years lineup was a bit of a let down.
    I'm sure you'll still have a blast though ( as long as you got the 4 day pass so you have re-entry)

    The brewfest is usually worth it... good one offs. That whole week is Eugene Beer Week, too... lots of stuff going on all around town.
