SB 444 Celebration

  • 04/02/2011
  • 2:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Mt. Tabor Park, Site A

Hey all,


   On Monday, our Governor signed Oregon's new homebrew law into effect; let's celebrate! The board of directors for the OBC and the PDX Brewers have collaborated for the occasion and are happy to announce that this upcoming Saturday, April 2nd at 2:30 pm, we have reserved a covered picnic shelter at Mt Tabor park to do just that.  All members of the OBC and PDX Brewers, as well as their friends and families, are welcome to attend.  We will be bringing the grill and cooking up some burgers and such and would like to ask that as many of you as possible bring a dish to share as well.  By no means is this a mandatory pot luck, but your participation will go a long way toward making this an event to remember.  The most important thing is to celebrate our ability to bring homebrew once again!  If you don't have homebrew, bring something else.  This event is "bring you own beer" (byob) so if you would like something to drink, please bring some too.  However, NO KEGS as this is a Portland Park rule.  To reduce waste, you might consider bringing a festival tasting cup of your own.


Additionally, we are looking for a volunteer to bring the bbq grill from FH Steinbart over to the picnic site.  Once the party is over, we also need someone to hold on to the grill until it can be returned to Steinbarts on Monday.  If anyone has a pickup, we would appreciate your help in making sure we have something to cook on.  Let us know at board@oregonbrewcrew.org


Also, if a few people happen to have a propane heater that they would be willing to set up, I'm sure our beer-mug-holding hands would appreciate it.  The club will, of course, reimburse you for the propane.


We hope to see you all this Saturday to celebrate the passing of Senate Bill 444 and the ability for all of us to, once again, bring homebrewed beer outside of our homes.  Let's make this a great turnout!

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!
