Beth Harrington filmed Beervana for OPB’s Oregon Experience series and it remains a vital part of the history of oregon beer. It first aired 11 year ago today, and is still well worth watching — and excerpts of the film — which features Don Younger, Fred Eckhardt, Fred Bowman, Art Larrance, Rob & Kurt Widmer, Dick & Nancy Ponzi, the McMenamin brothers and many others — are used in the new Oregon Historical Society exhibit, Barley, Barrels, Bottles, and Brews: 200 Years of Oregon Beer.
John Foyston is Oregon's longest serving beer writer, and wrote a

work has appeared on CNN, and in Beer Connoisseur, Celebrator Beer
News, Oregon Beer Growler, Mix Magazine and other publications and
will occasionally appear on these pages, at least until Angelo and DJ
get tired of him too...He can be followed on Twitter at @beerherejohnny.
