It's quite obvious at this point that BRIDGER'S BEER BLOG has dutifully served its purpose, and is no longer updated. Don't worry, I'm still drinking beer, I just don't have time to write about it anymore -- too many other projects. The lack of upkeep at this blog certainly doesn't reflect the beer scene in Portland these days. In fact, it's quite the opposite. I would say the pervasiveness of craft beer is expanding here and across the northwest. The same is true of spirits and food. Despite increased prices across the board, these are heartening trends. So consider this the last post. Thanks to everyone for the good conversation. Cheers! Bridger
