Exchange Exemplar: Beer and Southern Oregon History

We've been drinking beer a long time, we humans.

The oldest confirmed evidence shows people making and drinking beer around 7,000 years ago, and additional finds might double that time span.

The date range is a bit shorter in our part of the world, but is therefore better documented, in Phil Busse's book Southern Oregon Beer: A Pioneering History.

Phil joined us in 2019 to celebrate the suds, and we quaff another round here.
