2016 Whiskeytown USA - Portland Oregon

May 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

2015 was my first year being invited to photograph Whiskeytown USA.  If you like music, whiskey, or cocktails of any kind, you would have fun in this town.  The '16 version of this year's event is on the other side of the river in Southeast Portland.  Looking for something fun to do and want to try some of the world's best aged spirits?  Make your way down to Whiskeytown this weekend!  To kick off the event, four distillers came from all corners of the whiskey globe holding mini breakout sessions to drop some rye knowledge on the opening nights gathering.  After some learning minutes with these masters I feel my IQ has risen a few points.  Listening to folks talk about spirits always includes a few history lessons.  Think about it, man has been drinking since he can drink.  Leaving this event a little smarter I'm still stuck with one unanswered question about darker spirits, who makes the best whiskey?
