Dear all the wonderful supporters and attendees, past, present and future,
Just a couple days after Brews 2018 ended we started planning Brews 2019. We have worked tirelessly all year to bring you an amazing series of events which kick off on Thursday.
It was with a heavy heart that I have made the last minute decision not to come this year. My partner and I just moved into our brew condo, we won’t have a kitchen for another week (the condo was finished 4 months ahead of schedule), and we have a teething 9 month old. It is just too much for one person alone.
If you have any questions or need help, I’m still available and the team (James, Jeremy, Andy, Jessica, and myself) are sending 100s of texts a day making sure everything runs seamlessly
More info emails are going out soon and Instagram is being updated with info. Don’t forget the online auction.
Let’s make this yet another record year to help homeless, foster and at-risk youth. I will see you all with the family next year, or see some of you in Europe. Have fun, bid high, and be safe!
Love you all!
Ps some fun going on in Corvallis!
Totally understand, and don't blame you. You want to keep your relationship together... lol. That would be so mean to leave now.
Massive congratulations on the 9 month old and the new condo Don! I'm sure it's old news to everyone here but super cool to hear. Definitely the right decision! I can only hope to be able to make such wise beer related choices one day...
Missed you today don! Though you probably saw my hand wave at you!
Amazing start to the weekend!!
