As the Craft Beer industry continues to grow, especially in Oregon, it is no surprise that the large, Macro-Brew producers are starting to take notice.

While competition is always a problem in business, it has also been called the highest form of flattery – that people like your product so much, they are trying to copy it!

Small, fast moving Craft Beer makers have a huge audience yet to tap, and we feel the future is bright for anyone that continues to put out a top quality product.
