Ooligan Press, local author Jeff Alworth, and the Craft Brew Alliance have teamed up to bring you Ooligan’s next title: The Widmer Way: How Two Brothers Led Portland’s Craft Beer Revolution. The book, out March 26, explores the rise of Portland’s own beer titans: Kurt and Rob Widmer.
During the cooler months here in the Pacific Northwest, many of us can be found taking refuge indoors from the harsh weather raging outside, bundled in layers of sweaters or (comfortably, safely) smothered under blankets. And, if you’re anything like me, your reading list and Netflix queue are dwindling as you burn through them faster than logs in a fireplace. Fear not, my chilly children, for I have compiled yet another list, this time to help you fill those drizzly, blizzardy, blustery days. Following are my suggestions for how to pair some Ooligan Press titles with documentaries.
