Perhaps I'm unfairly stereotyping here, but normally a beer event wouldn't inspire me with the potential for street-style photos. But, the Mercury's Malt Ball on Saturday, which combined a crap-ton of the region's best breweries with a crap-ton of the region's best bands, resulting in a surprisingly fruitful evening for Portland's Pretty blogger Marissa Sullivan (who doubles as one of the Mercury's account managers). According to her findings, the consensus on what to wear to such an event is strangely near-unanimous: a hat, some glasses, and at least one thing that's blue. More photographic evidence is available on MOD.
