Portland, OR - The Homebrew Exchange will host an “exchange” party on Saturday, April 16 starting at 4pm to celebrate the signing of Oregon Senate Bill 444. This new legislation allows home brewers to share their fermented beverages outside the location where it was brewed. Home brewers, cheese makers, friends, and neighbors are invited to come and share their home made creations in celebration of the passing of SB 444.
The passing of SB444 will allow home brewers to again enter home brew competitions and share their brews outside the home. Jocelyn Fabbri, owner of Homebrew Exchange, says, "We are pleased to see this bill pass. The home brewing community in Portland is very active and homebrewers love to talk beer and share brews. This bill really makes that possible. The new law has made our customers very happy. They are excited to be able to share their hobby with their neighbors again."
The festivities will include a raffle and a best in show contest. As always, this is a family friendly event.
