It Starts With Beer Fundraiser - July 27, 2015

Remember when the Dutch brewers were in Portland last year? Here is the movie that recorded their visit. In 2014, 10 Dutch brewers set out on a journey to take part in the Oregon Brewers Festival. One of the Dutch brewers – Rick Nelson with Oedipus Brewing – teamed up with film director Boris Booij to film the experience. The result is the movie "It All Starts with Beer."

Join us for a screening of “It All Starts with Beer” as well as a Panel Discussion with the brewers from The Netherlands who attended the 27th annual @Oregon Oregon Brewers Festival.

The movie shows how and why Portland catapulted ahead in the microbrew revolution, comparing it with The Netherlands and its uprising of craft beer making. Footage is from the Oregon Brewers Festival and much more. We welcome a number of the Dutch Brewers who will be on hand to talk about the movie and the adventure during a panel discussion.

Doors open at 6pm, the event starts at 7pm. Tickets are $7, minors welcome with parent or guardian. Watch the trailer at

Tickets can be bought online at:
