December 3rd - December 7th, 2014 | Pioneer Courthouse Square | Portland, Oregon

In addition to beer, the Holiday Ale Festival is a connoisseur in the fine art of hand-drawn vintage pinup girls. They are typically glamorous or fashionable in style, and are always done in good taste. Betty Grable has nothing on our beautiful ladies. Wouldn't you agree?

The Holiday Ale Festival Vintage Pinups

In 2009, the Holiday Ale Festival began a new tradition of featuring a vintage pin-up girl as the annual representative of the festival. In 2009, Holly brought us holiday cheer, and in 2010, we fell head over heels for Eve. When 2011 arrived, we gained a touch of elegance with Noelle, and last year, Sugar & Spice combined for a wonderful winter warmer.

Introducing Carol

CarolFor 2014, we find ourselves getting very caught up singing "carols" while enjoying some great winter beers. As winter rolls in, Carol knows just how to get everyone in the spirit... with a prolonged trip to the Holiday Ale Festival in Portland, Oregon. After all, there is no better place in the NW for great craft beer under warm and cozy tents.

Carol is a huge fan of Begian-Style Sours and Golden Ales, and finds unique Holiday Blends quite exquisite.

You can get one of her official posters at the festival or if you are more of a digital collector, or want to send them to friends, she has a poster available for download in Adobe Acrobat format. Just click the link below.
