What is it?


A private bus tour for the OBC of the Bull Run Watershed. There is a one mile hike (optional) to view the flora and fauna and learn how the Portland Water Bureau and US Forest Service work together to protect the watershed. You’ll walk through a dam built in 1929 and drive past one built in 1962. Lunch is on the shores of Bull Run Lake with spectacular views so bring a camera! Don’t forget to bring a sack lunch! (No alcohol allowed)


There is a quick stop at the Columbia South Shore Well too.

Learn about the source of Portland Water and why it is so terrific! Bring your questions and watch for bats at the ranger house near the 1929 dam.

Education topic: Open Forum!  A panel of experienced and successful OBC homebrewers will answer questions from the group in an open Q&A informal format.  Think of it as chatting about making better beer with 100 of your closest friends.

Food: We would like to have food available at this meeting, so we encourage our members to bring some food items for everyone to share. Don't forget that bringing food to share at a meeting can earn not only Karma points but also raffle tickets.  Meagan will be holding a raffle for all members that bring food items.  She will be giving away a $25 gift card and more. On top of all of this, our 2018 Burgermeister, Meagan Thompson would love the support!

Beer:  Beer is a very important part of these meetings. We wouldn’t have beer without our members. Growler fills and bottled homebrew  are highly encouraged as this is a great way to share your beer with your peers and get honest and immediate feedback. If you bring a keg of your homebrew to a meeting you will earn Karma Points! Keep in mind that we may have beer planned for the Education topic or beer from other club specific brewing events. So that we can balance the amount of beer available at our meetings It is very helpful for us to plan in advance of the meeting. If you would like to request a tap spot for your keg, or if you plan to pour a keg via a picnic tap, please let us know in advance! We ask that if you do bring a keg, that you give a brief talk to the members about the details of your beer . Please contact Club VP to see if there is room for your keg @ Brian.haslip@oregonbrewcrew.org

Please support your club and plan on attending! Guests and visitors are welcome at all "In" Meetings!
