Weekend Guide to Beer Drinking in Portland
August looked to be a slow month in the aftermath of Oregon Craft Beer Month, but this weekend is no different than many in July, with no fewer than 3 different beer festivals (BikeToBeerFest, Humulus Maximus and the first ever Vancouver Brewfest) in the greater Portland area. Not to mention Migration Brewing Co. debuts its brand new, reimagined logo with a party featuring beer specials and giveaways.

Migration is excited to share the evolution of our company’s new logo. Why is Migration changing their logo? Simply said, we have chosen to evolve the logo due to a cease and desist filed by the Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC) last summer. Under the threat of being sued over this issue, we decided that we would prefer to spend our time making great beer rather than getting caught up in a potentially costly and time consuming lawsuit.
