The Oregon Brewers Festival Will Return in 2022 (Hopefully)

Back in 2020, the team behind the Oregon Brewers Festival decided to cancel its 33rd year of beer tastings on the waterfront. The festival was supposed to run in late July, and with coronavirus spreading rapidly through the state, organizers didn’t feel confident that they would be able to safely host guests. It seems the festival won’t return in 2021, either: On Monday evening, the site admins for the Oregon Brewers Festival Facebook page posted the cancelation announcement. “This has been an incredibly difficult decision, but we are canceling this summer’s festival once again,” the post reads. “Until then, stay safe and support your local pubs, breweries, and cider houses.” According to the post, the event will return July 27 through July 30 in 2022.

A New Pop-Up Is Serving Cacio E Pepe Bagels

Tartine alum Josh Sales and Portland restaurant vet Tommy Habetz will start a new bagel pop-up this month, specializing in intentionally bread-y bagels. Honey Bagel starts with a slow-fermented dough, which gets boiled in honey water and finished with toppings like sesame seeds or a cacio-e-pepe-inspired black pepper and pecorino. The pop-up will start to take over Pizza Jerk’s Cully location on Fridays and Saturdays at 9 a.m. starting March 5.[PoMo]
