There is definitely something to be said about life in Oregon and often it revolves around craft beer. This coming month Oregon is going to demonstrate again what it means to be ‘Beervana’. Although the calendar right now looks a bit anorexic I will be updating it with the events occurring during what is coined “Oregon Beer Month”source, http://maltedbarleyandhops.files.wordpress.com

     Starting on June 30th, with a Touche Restaurant dinner with guest Ninkasi Brewing, you Oregonians have no reason to complain about ‘something to do’. If anything I will be joining some of you hopefully on the last weekend during the Oregon Brewer’s Festival. Till then you will find me occasionally moaning and groaning lack of sleep from 4 or 5 straight ours of early of the Tour de France. 

Cheers & Happy Oregon Beer Month!
