High ABVs in PDX's North Pole

NoPo's northern outpost St. Johns is hosting its second annual Winter Beer Fest, wherein Plew's Brews will transform into a Winter-ale wonderland with nearly 30 specialty micros including 10 Barrel's Permafrost, Alameda's ultra-thick Papa Noel, Great Divide's Oak-Aged Yeti, and Oakshire's 9.7% strong ale called Very Ill-Tempered Gnome, also a name for Tom Bosley during contract negotiations at Nickelodeon.
