Sudsy Wants You to Join the Oregon Commentator

If you see this House of Representatives rockin’ …

I was poking around the Internets today, doing some school work and whatnot, when I made my way to the website of Representative Peter DeFazio (of bike bridge fame). As I scrolled through, I noted a link for something called the House Small Brewers Caucus. Yep, it turns out DeFazio and Greg Walden co-chair a caucus dedicated to the advancement of micro-breweries. Most of the other Oregon representatives (Hooley, Wu and Blumenauer) are there too. The website has information on brewing and even a chart on beer and food pairings, not to mention a sweet logo. Could it be that our state representatives are cooler than we all thought? Should we send them Sudsy t-shirts in hope that they’ll wear them on the floor of Congress?

Nah, but that’s still a pretty sweet logo.

    That wasn’t a logo. It was a picture of a beer.

    1) I pissed on that foot bridge more than once.

    2) DeFazio looks like a garden gnome.

    3) A friend of mine from high school now works for Blumenauer in DC.

    4) Other than those non-sequiturs, Tyler is right.

    I believe Oregon’s wine industry has quite the national praise for its pinots these days.

  4. T says:

    It’s because the Brewery Blocks in downtown Portland, which are adjacent to the Pearl District (aka Yuppieville), are thriving, and brewing is pretty much the only industry for which Oregon is nationally recognized.

    Oh, and Blumenauer is far from “cool”.
