2021 Board Members


PRESIDENT (Officer)


Jon Campbell I'm Jon Campbell and have been the Communications Chair for three years and was your Vice President last year. I look forward to being your President for 2020 and am excited by the energy the new board has as well as the vast knowledge.


I have been home brewing for over ten years and love the hobby. I have been a member of OBC and AHA now for seven years. I am an avid beer lover and home brewer. I love going on "Beer-cations" with my wife, Jodi. I have enjoyed getting to know more OBC members every year and hope to meet more of you in the future. I am hoping to use some of my enthusiasm and love of beer to help out the Oregon Brew Crew. I am pleased to serve on the board again and help keep your homebrew club the very best it can be. 



VICE PRESIDENT (Officer)


Grace Schrick Hey Everyone for those of you that don’t know me I am Grace Schrick. I have been a member for a few years now, but this is my first year on the board.  I got introduced to the club by some friends (Jon and Jodi Campbell) and just never left. Beer is pretty much my life. In addition to being a homebrewer I am a beer buyer for Market of Choice and a bartender at a local  tap house. When I’m not brewing, working, judging beer or podcasting about it, you’ll usually find me at all the beer events and festivals in town. I’m a total beer nerd and love sharing that passion with everyone. I hope that some of my industry connections and knowledge can help the club and any of its members. I am stoked to be on the board and can’t wait to see what this year brings. Cheers! 

TREASURER (Officer)

Michele Lish - I joined OBC in Nov 2013, just in time to attend my first OBC meeting, which was an election meeting and a vote on the budget.  I have only missed a few meetings in the five years I've been a member, and pride myself in being a very active volunteer: I brought food to meetings, have been on several committees, volunteered many times for events either to pour beer or staff the OBC booth, designed and generated the OBC challenge coins, and participated in some level for many competitions (bottle sorting, staff member, steward and even judged once).  I joined the AHA and attended Homebrew Con in Minneapolis in 2017 and not only attended the 2018 event in Portland, but was also on the OBC committee, and I did bottle sorting and was a steward for the beer competition. I attended every PNWHBC. Attending the training session was my reason for going, but I do admit I had a great time sampling some beer, visiting display booths and visiting some great brew pubs.  I don't brew that often, but love brewing with other people because I always learn a lot.  I've participated in both the Big Brew Day and Learn to Brew Events almost every year.  For 2019, I decided that it was time to be on the OBC board because I felt I had enough exposure to so many aspects of our club that I would be a productive member of the board.  I hope to continue as a board member for a few years, and will use my skills and experience as the Treasuer in 2020. I enjoy so many aspects of the club and will continue to contribute to a group I have come to love.  


SECRETARY (Officer)

Jodi Campbell - My name is Jodi. I like beer and cats.

COMPETITION CHAIR

Scott Nieradka I am Scott Nieradka, and your new Competition Chair. I have been a OBC member for around 4 years, and have been homebrewing seriously for around 5 years. I’m a BJCP National Judge, and will be co-teaching the BJCP training class again this year. I have an interest in brewing science, water chemistry, and mashing, and an interest in European lager styles. Originally from NJ, I've been living in various places in the Pacific Northwest since 2003; I’m an installation artist working in higher ed in art and technology; I earned my MFA in Printmaking from the University of Oregon. My other hobbies include analog electronics for musicians, gardening, and having long involved conversations with my cats. TBA


EDUCATION CHAIR

Alex Parise - Hello friends, I am this year's OBC Education Chair. I've been homebrewing on and off for twenty-some years; I started homebrewing with my father, and have been brewing seriously for about five years. I've lived in Portland for seven years, and have also lived in Denver and New Jersey. I am a Certified judge in the BJCP program, and am co-teaching the OBC's BJCP study class for the second time this year. In my brew shed, I focus on European lager and commercially extinct styles, and am very interested in yeast and grain genomics, probably as a result of my otherwise-unused biochem degree. When I'm not brewing or judging beer, you can either find me working as a programming team director at a downtown startup, or volunteering on wilderness riparian restoration projects - after all, clean, pure water is CRITICAL for beer brewing. I look forward to having a taste, ten-minute judging session, or pint with you. Prost!

COMMUNICATIONS CHAIR

Felicia Reninger - My name is Felicia but you can call me Fish! This will be my third run with the OBC Board and I am thrilled to return. I am a craft beer enthusiast and work for a local brewery doing sales and part time brewing. When I find the time to brew at home I like to brew a lager or pale ale. I joined OBC 4 years ago to connect with the local festival scene and build on my BJCP Certification. Hope to see you in the future for a pint!  

EVENTS CHAIR

Will Minderhout - Continuing board member:  Treasurer 2013, Vice-President 2014, 2015, President 2016, interim Vice-President 2018. Worked sales for Reverend Nat's Hard Cider and Ordnance Brewing.



MEMBERSHIP CHAIR

Bob Davee -  

Hi there- I’ve been a member of OBC since 2017 and enjoy all things beer and brewing. My brewing journey started with a mystery hop bine in my yard in SE Portland since we moved in. Since it broke my heart to dump out all that great hop goodness, I decided to learn how to brew with a help from a couple of neighbors. My latest pride and joy is a Grainfather brewing system and am enjoying immensely!

I always brew an annual fresh hop ale and then rotate to Farmhouse ales (especially clones of The Commons’ Urban Farmhouse ale!) with an occasional stout.

As membership chair, I’m excited to bring the joy of homebrewing down to a stovetop scale with our members who don’t have a lot of space to brew, ferment and age their beer.  My goal is to help us all get the most value from our membership whether you’re a newbie, apprentice or true artisan brewer/fermenter. I’m looking forward to being ‘in’ and ‘out’ with our in-person meetings again as we emerge from this pandemic. 

Shoot me an email and let’s chat. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

BURGERMEISTER

Torri Hansmann -   My parents let me sample wine and beer at home growing up. They always made their own wine, but never beer. I would always mix different drinks together to try to make them something fun and new. It didn't often work out. When I met my partner, Jason, I also met my future brew partner and mentor. I have brewed alongside him for 3 years now and am only just starting to venture out on my own. I look forward to serving as your Burgermeister and ensuring that there is always food for the crew to enjoy and soak up a bit of the great homebrew you all have brought to share. I enjoy creating my own food and beer recipes and strive to make a great spiced herbal beer in the near future. In her non-brewing life Torri is a Pharmacy Technician, a Care giver in an assisted living community, a caterer of small dinners for 20-250 and a mother of 2 kids and a dog.
