Everything is better with beer, especially the Olympics

When the regular old Olympics roll around every two years, I think, You know, I really like these world-unifying games, like the decathalon and curling. But I just feel like there’s something missing.

I haven’t been able to quite put my finger on what exactly is missing until now. It’s beer! Instead of going through the exhausting process of adding “Beer” to the lineup of Olympic events, the folks behind Old Mill Brew Werks at 384 SW Upper Terrace Drive have taken it upon themselves to hold the first Beer Olympics in Bend this Saturday. The contenders, going head-to-head, will be Bend and Portland. Breweries participating include Laurelwood, Bridgeport, 10 Barrel, Silver Moon, Cascade Lakes, Hopworks and Three Creeks.

The games start at 2:00 p.m. and cost $15 per person. This includes 3 oz tasters of around 20 beers. People, that’s like half a gallon of beer. Plus, you get to fill out a scorecard and offset the shady Romanian judges. Let the games begin!

If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock.
