Beers Made By Walking will be part of Open Engagement 2013

May 2013 /
I have been invited to organize one of my Beers Made By Walking walks for the 2013 Open Engagement conference in Portland, OR. The walk will be our first public urban walk. It will start on May 18th at 5pm at 2724 SE Ankeny. We will cover about 2 miles in 1.5 hours and we will identify edible and medicinal plants growing in parks, parking lots, medians, and in front yards. The brewers from Coalition and Upright will be with us, and sometime this summer they will make new beers inspired by what we identify. The beers will be served at a special tapping in Portland in October, details will be listed, in time, at beersmadebywalking.com.
