Hood River, Oregon –Full Sail Brewing has just announced the release of their latest video “Full Sail Brewing: Beer, Water & Responsibility. A great brew begins with great water. Full Sail is located in Hood River, Oregon at the base of Mt. Hood, where pristine water literally flows from the springs on the mountain. The video was filmed at and around the brewery, celebrating both the breweries exceptionally low water use and the beauty of the environment that inspires this commitment to preserve this valuable resource.
“When we look out from our brewery we can see both the Columbia River and the snow-capped peaks beyond, highlighted up against the clear blue skies. We feel so lucky to work in this truly amazing place. It would be impossible to live and work in the Columbia River Gorge and not be inspired by the sheer beauty of the place. It’s not hard to figure out what would attract us to this setting. And it is our love for this environment that drives our sustainable practices, so pure water, local ingredients and responsible processes are poured into each and every pint,” says Full Sail’s Executive Brewmaster, Jamie Emmerson.
The video was filmed locally by LarvickMedia features scenic footage of the Columbia River Gorge and the Hood River Valley. It is narrated by Full Sail Brewing’s Executive Brewmaster, Jamie Emmerson and shows the steps the Brewery takes to conserve this precious resource achieving one of the lowest water uses to beer ratios in the industry.
Angelo M. De Ieso II comes from the great Northeast where he spent most of his formative years in Central Maine after being born in Massachusetts. His first experience with craft brewing came from Samuel Adams, Shipyard, Geary’s, and a few other imports like Samuel Smiths and (gulp) Guinness. In 1996 he moved to the Bay Area and discovered Lagunita’s, Mendocino, Anchor, Sierra Nevada, and others that changed his palate forever (there was always a few Henry Weinhards to go around, too). Since 1998, Angelo has lived and quaffed in Portland, Oregon where his friend Shane introduced him to several delicious flavors from Deschutes to Spaten, Full Sail to Hair of the Dog. In 2005, Angelo graduated from Portland State University with a degree in communication and a deeper love for craft beers. Angelo met Aaron, his partner in crime at Brewpublic, at KPSU, Portland State’s radio station, where the two were staff members and DJs. He has been an correspondent for the Portland Tribune’s Guest on Tap column, LivePDX.com, and has been featured in publications such as Beer Northwest and PDX Magazine. Angelo also has a great interest in independent music, and has been a booker and organizer for shows around the Portland under the name Pop Tomorrow! Angelo garnered much knowledge regarding beer from his experiences working at Belmont Station, Pyramid Brewing, By the Bottle, Beer Revolution, Olde Depot Public House, Falling Sky Brewing, and from many knowledgeable people along the way. It is Angelo’s mission to bring “infotainment” and “edumation” to the readers of this website. If you have any questions or comments, or would like to contribute, please contact him.

“Head blogger for Brewpublic, good friend of the bar, and all-around ale maniac, Angelo appears at first to be a soft-spoken, modest fella with a peculiar predilection towards Boston-area sports teams. But make no mistake, this man knows where the dead bodies are buried.” -Michael O’Connor, Bailey’s Taproom, professional beer scribe.
