    Each year, Widmer Brothers Brewing donates $4 per barrel of Collaborator beer sold to the OBC. This money is usually passed on to the Bob McCracken Scholarship fund at OSU to assist students in the Fermentation Science program.

     

    For the past few years, this amount has been less than $1000 so we usually add money from our normal budget to make it about $1000. This year, however, the amount exceeded our expectations. We were given a check by Rob Widmer at the BBQ for $1,671.45! This is terrific news for the OBC and for the Bob McCracken Scholarship recipients. Next time you see Rob, give him a hearty thank you!

     

    Cheers!

    We are launching a coalition of breweries, water service companies, and homebrew clubs to help the families who live in Flint, MI.  


    If you are not aware already, the water source for Flint was changed from Detroit's water supply (Lake Huron & the Detroit River) to the Flint River to save money. The water from the Flint River is highly corrosive and was not treated properly. This led to the water pipes in Flint to become damaged and leech out lead and other contaminants. This water should not be bathed in let alone consumed. Lead poisoning in children leads to long term learning disabilities. Many of the residents of Flint are poor and do not have a car so cannot easily get access to the bottled water that is being distributed.


    Fortunately, the city has since switched the water source back to the original source, however, the damage to the pipes has been done and the water is still poisonous. 

    Read more about the crisis in this American city, here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flint_water_crisis


    Our donation will be used as seed money to get additional donors from the brewing and water treatment communities. Ultimately, 100% of the funds raised will go to help the folks of Flint.


    To date, we have pledges of support from the following companies and clubs:


    • Clean Water Services
    • Montavilla Brew Works
    • Pints & Zoiglhaus
    • Coin Toss Brewing
    • Genessee Brewers Club


    Here's where you can help!


    We need volunteers to help reach out to breweries and homebrew clubs to partner with us. If you are interested in helping, please send an email to treasurer@oregonbrewcrew.org.


    Thank you for your support!

    CONGRATULATIONS TO ... THE BIG WINNER ... Carling Kirk!


    Thanks go to MainBrew, for sponsoring the raffle, the 91 entrants who came by the booth, and our 296 active members who support the club's festival budget, making this all possible. 


    Thanks, in particular, go to the 28 volunteers who gave of their time and energies to make the OBC booth at the NAOBF such an inviting and enjoyable place to be, one of which happened to be Carling.  Carling, by the way, also donated to the raffle, earning additional entries, and volunteered for the Saturday afternoon shift.  Karma, fate and mathematics have smiled upon her.


    Congratulations Carling!
