I’m not the world’s biggest soccer fan, but I’m increasingly a fan of the fans — especially after Sunday’s fundraiser at NWIPA where they came together to buy special patches from Tina Ettlin and the Patch Patrol, and special beers donated by NWIPA, The BeerMongers (Sean even paid Chris to work the bar Sunday) and others to raise money to help the ongonig expense of treatment for Inga Ward’s cancer. (If you missed Sunday, you can help by donating here).
John Foyston is Oregon's longest serving beer writer, and wrote a
weekly beer column for The Oregonian until just recently. His
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.
