The Oregon Brewers Festival estimates 80,000 people attended the four-day event at Portland’s Waterfront Park.  That's 12,000 more than last year. Chris Crabb says the increase is good and bad. It was too crowded and lines were long, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. Although organizers are happy that people are more interested in craft beers, there must be some changes to accommodate the crowds. An economic impact study suggests the festival brings about $2-million into Portland.
