An Ear For Beer
What I want you to know is your responsibility as a beer geek. If you are an educated beer geek in Oregon, you should be telling everybody you know about OBF. We have specialty events and festivals through the year, but one of the best gateway beer events is OBF. You are the guide that helps people transition into the craft beer community. It is your responsibility to encourage people to attend OBF. Make recommendations for beer; tell them the hours and the best times to go. Help them design a map to maximize their time and help them use Trimet for transportation. You should be encouraging your family members, co-workers and complete strangers to go to a festival that puts Portland on the International map as a beer destination. It is your civic duty to do whatever you can do, to advocate for craft beer in Oregon and to help people who do not drink craft beer find their way. When you find people that do drink craft beer, you should help them discover more of it, whether it is new breweries or new beer styles. Every local beer geek is an ambassador starting today and you are responsible for ensuring that more people drink more craft beer and one of the best places to start is to direct visitors and locals to OBF!
