On March 28th OHBA is hosting "Tap into History," an event at the Mission Theater in Portland to introduce OHBA to their diverse audience. OHBA will bring together a panel for a public talk about brewing history in Oregon.

Tiah Edmunson-Morton, OHBA archivist, will talk about the project and its impact. Peter Kopp, agricultural historian, will talk about his use of archival materials and the relevance for researchers. John Foyston, an Oregonian writer since 1987, will talk about his work documenting the Oregon beer scene. Full Sail's CEO and Co-Founder, Irene Firmat, will talk about her work as a female brewing pioneer. Daniel Sharp, PhD student in the OSU College of Agriculture's Fermentation Science program, will talk about his research and the OSU program.

The event concludes with screenings from Hopstories, a collection of short videos showcasing breweries in Oregon, and OPB's Beervana, a documentary about the history of beer and the rise of craft brewing in Oregon.
