My duty as a citizen

Monday, July 02, 2007
According to the Oregon state government's website, July is (or soon will be) Oregon Crafted Beer Month. "There are currently 56 brewing companies operating 76 brewing facilities in Oregon, with 28 breweries operating within the Portland city limits--more than any other city in the world." I can personally attest to the wide variety of mostly good beer that we have around here.

I'm conflicted. On the one hand, beer is high in calories and - in large quantities - not really good for me. On the other hand - in limited quantities - I'd be enjoying Oregon's fine crafted beers and doing my part as a citizen. I mean really, if I'm not drinking the local beer I must hate Oregon, right?

I think I shall enjoy some this week. The Ram has a fine "Blonde" beer that I've become fond of. When I'm in the mood for something darker, I like the Black Butte Porter from the Deschutes brewery. Do I have extra lemons laying around? Perhaps a Hefeweizen from the Widmer brothers. Up at the Kennedy School watching a movie? McMenamin's has a decent selection of their own beer, as well. With so many options it's hard to choose - and hard to lose, since they're all good.

I'll raise a glass to that!
