It started as an 80th birthday party for Fred Eckhardt, the Dean of American Beer Writers, and now we celebrate not only his birthday, but his life and the incredible role he played in today's current beer landscape. Fred would have turned 93 this year, and in the spirit of giving as FredFest has always been intended, it will continue, as we celebrate again at Hair of the Dog Brewery, 61 SE Yamhill St., in Portland, OR.

Tickets are limited and they will go fast (they've sold out every year to date).

Now begs that timeless question...What Would Fred Drink? (WWFD?)
