BRWPUBLIC caught up with Brewvana propieter Ashley Rose Salvitti to find out more about her exciting new business.
“With this city overflowing with amazing, handcrafted beers, my company will embrace the beer culture and promote local breweries by conducting a brewery tour experience that will leave people with an elated sense of brewvana in the beer capitol of the world. I define brewvana as the euphoric state of awareness, appreciation and love for Portland’s finest craft beer.”
“It is my goal to build lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with the breweries and other key players in the beer world, in a combined effort to support our local beer! With my background in the service industry I will not only go above and beyond to provide the best experience possible to my guests, but I will be very considerate when visiting the establishments. I will be educated about their brewery and be working with them to showcase the beers that they would like me to represent, and in the way that they choose. I will keep the capacity to 14 and visit the breweries at their convenience (on their schedule), in an effort to maximize the success of these machines that produce the liquid that we love.”
“BREWVANA will provide 4 consistent weekly tour options (same times, same breweries), one monthly connoisseur tour, and 4 seasonal tours per year. The tours will be all inclusive and provide transportation and beer samples, plus some of the following: education: tasting 101 and brewing 101, food and beer pairing, walkthroughs of the facilities, Q n A with brewer, trivia, games and more.”
“The tours will also range from amateur imbiber to ceravisaphile. An intro tour will provide a general overview of beer in this city while a connoisseur tour that will provide a more in depth view of the brewing process, a sampling of rare specialty beers and more. The connoisseur tour will be led by a different Portland brewer each month. It will cater to the local beer SNOBs and will require a more advanced brewing knowledge and experience.”
