Once inside the Nano Beer Fest it will be mainly brewers pouring their very own beer so attendees can learn more about the brewery that may fly somewhat under the radar. But for when a brewer is not present at the pouring station, there will be floater volunteers from the Oregon Brew Crew and PDX Brewers Club to fill in the spaces.
