Project Pabst Pours Over Zidell Yards

Portland’s unwavering love of cheap beer and good music has finally paid off: this past weekend, Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery thanked the city for its love and support with Project Pabst, a stellar three-day festival that is hopefully the first of many to come.  Organized by the folks who cook up Bonnaroo (Superfly), Project Pabst was the most substantial event yet to take over Zidell Yards, a post-industrial waterfront lot (read, a gravel parking lot) between the Ross Island Bridge and the soon-to-come Tilikum Crossing. Two stages—Captain Pabst and Blue Ribbon—were set on opposite ends of the Yards, framing a
