This year's Oregon Brewer’s Festival brought about 80,000 beer lovers to Portland; and those folks spent about $30-million on the festival and related events.
Those numbers come from Eastern Oregon University Professor Jeff Dense. He says this year's total was $7-million more than last year and that the average festival goer spent about $700 - and most of that was outside the festival, at restaurants, hotels and theaters.
