As heard on the radio this morning...

BY THE NUMBERS: There's absolutley no slowdown or saturation in Oregon craft beer.   The Oregon Brewers Guild has just released its annual report on the craft beer economy.  

Some of the highlights:

  • 23% of beer consumed in Oregon is brewed in Oregon.
  • 1.9 million people visited an Oregon brewery, pub or tasting room in 2016.
  • 31,000 Oregonians are employed, directly or indirectly, in the state's craft beer industry.
  • Craft beer contributed $4.49 billion dollars to the state's economy in 2016. 

NEW FESTIVAL: Cascade Brewing's Sour Flower Fest is coming up May 21-22.

The Beer Geek is on the air every Thursday morning at 7:40 a.m. on NewsTalk 860 KPAM and is brought to you by Anctil Heating and Cooling... Hard to Say, Easy to Work With!
