This Weekend's LagerFest; Sellwood's Black Cat Shutters

CENTRAL EASTSIDE INDUSTRIAL—More than 40 breweries will lighten up this weekend during the first-annual LagerFest, a two-day lager celebration taking place at the White Owl Social Club. Breweries ranging from Base Camp to Heater Allen to Pfriem will pour samples; Eastside Deli and White Owl Social Club provide food to help wash it all down. The $20 one-day admission fee (tickets available here) includes 10 beer tastes. [EaterWire]
