I love beer! My Beery Valentine at Saraveza

For those of you who are unaware, Angelo was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last summer and has ever-increasing medical costs as a result.  He is doing much better, but has a long road ahead, which will require even more funds.  We’re encouraging our community to continue giving back to someone who has contributed so much to the Oregon Craft Beer Community and the Craft Beer movement in general. If you would like to donate to Angelo directly, you may do so via PayPal by sending money to or  You can also donate to Angelo De Ieso at P.O. Box 14525, Portland, OR 97293.

So make your way with your loved one to Saraveza on Friday to celebrate Valentine’s Day with some fabulous beers from some of Oregon’s finest brewers.
