PORTLAND, Ore. — March 17, 2016 — Portland loves craft brewing, and now our library reflects that passion. Portland Brew Stories is a unique partnership between Multnomah County Library and local breweries to build a collection that represents our culture, history and passion for beer in our community. The collection includes videos, photos, labels and much more from 14 amazing breweries (see videos by Hopstories: teaser; Ecliptic; Gigantic; Migration).
Central Library hosted a kickoff event for Portland Brew Stories in February. More than 60 members of the public heard a talk on the history of brewing and sampled beers from six participating breweries.
This project is a collaborative effort between the library and participating breweries with support and assistance from Oregon Hops and Brewing Archives at Oregon State University Library.
