Brewer’s Guild

Recognizing the importance of beer, wine, and spirits production in Portland and the surrounding region, as well as the related complex legal issues involved, the Lewis & Clark Brewer’s Guild was created in January, 2012.

The Lewis & Clark Brewer’s Guild aims to provide a forum for those who brew beer or make wine to network with others who also create their own beverages, or are interested in learning more about the process and relevant laws.  The Guild promotes these goals by: inviting speakers to campus for talks on various legal topics related to licensing, production, labeling, and other business and intellectual property matters; conducting workshops and demonstrations to educate those who are interested in learning more about safe production practices; and holding networking events, tasting parties, and competitions.
