BY THE OUNCE | Beer enthusiasts are so confident these days, they don’t even have to name their own festival. A massive expo featuring more than 70 breweries, “THE FESTIVAL 2013” boasts at having the biggest cluster of small-batch beer, cider, and mead makers ever collected in one room. They run in three shifts of four hours apiece Friday and Saturday, beginning tonight at 6:30. Tickets cost $65; be aware that Maine law caps consumption at these sorts of things at 48 ounces. At the Portland Yacht Services Building at 58 Fore St. Visit the-festival.us for more info.
