Bringing you the stories of the breweries, brewmasters and beers from Oregon in an ongoing webseries & podcast.
We are creating the most dominate beer themed web series in Portland, Oregon. Our goal is to feature Portland beers, breweries, and brewmasters as well as highlight the beer culture that makes this area unique and able to support more than 50 microbreweries. This series tries to draw people to places that they haven’t tried or never knew existed and have a damn fun time doing it. Our project has multiple facets: a web series, a podcast and a blog. While some people want to "Keep Portland Weird", we want to "Keep Portland Beer'd".
The web series is a chance to really let the stories from breweries and their brewmasters shine as well as showcasing their beers they are known for. The podcast is a chance for us to taste some local & non-local beers, talk nonsense, argue and be belligerent but with an overall theme holding it all together. Our blog is the catch-all: there are stories, happenings and events that won't be caught on camera but still need to be shared.
Who are we?
We've assembled from three different states and all bring a unique perspective to the beer scene. Our crack team is made of a web developer, journalist, video editor, two videographers. We are all avid media consumers and bring a special flavor to everything from the videos to the website and our diverse backgrounds make us the perfect team to tell Portland's beer stories.
In the last year we have produced 6 podcasts & are in process of producing 5 webseries episodes. With your help we hope to double our production.
It's fun, it's usable and it's totally awesome. Here is a peak at most of the stuff you can pick up by contributing to the cause.

The positive note about our project is that it's already in production but we are still facing a lot challenges: different versions of software being incompatible, different cameras and their quality, hard drive storage & corruption, and all of us hold normal jobs.
Reducing technology related errors is our greatest enemy to overcome, and setting up our storage in a way to be accessible anywhere any time so that there is nothing stopping us from doing what we love is a second priority in that battle.
There is nothing we will not overcome, this is a project of passion and love much like the beer we enjoy so much.
