“My First Oregon Brewers Festival” movie, July 5

The Oregon Brewers Festival is just over a month away and this year is a milestone year for the event: 25 years of the OBF! As part of the celebration leading up to the OBF this year, the Oregon Brewers Guild is presenting a special documentary movie, “My First Oregon Brewers Festival”, which will air on July 5 at McMenamins Mission Theater.

This 60-minute documentary features interviews with brewers, beer drinkers and others during the 2011 Oregon Brewers Festival.

We’ll also feature a panel that will include Kurt and Rob Widmer, Art Larrance and others. Ask them questions about the early days of the Oregon Brewers Festival! McMenamins will also feature guest taps that night from Widmer, Cascade and BridgePort.

The full panel lineup will includes (besides Larrance and the Widmers) Karl Ockert and Fred Eckhardt and be moderation by Lisa Morrison.
