Charlie P. in town
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:14:11 AM »
Charlie came to town yesterday to help raise funds for my congressman Peter Defazio.  Now, it's not strictly politics...Peter is the founder and chairman of the House Small Brewers Caucus, so there a connection there.  Here's a pic of some of our club members with Charlie...

Ha...I don't think anyone has the stones to lock a Denny thread :)

What a fun way to spend an afternoon.

If I thought it was truly political, I wouldn't have posted it.  But to me it's about Charlie coming to town to visit with homebrewers.

I'm sure you could have just left the whole political reason out altogether and it would have been just the same.  Even with having the main reason he was in town listed I agree it's not a political post as it's about Charlie P not the politician.

I say the politics that works as an advocate for brewing should get an exemption here anyway. Nice picture.

This post is as much about politics as a post about trappist ales is about religion.

Last year at NHC I asked him for directions. I had no clue who is talking to.

I agree. As long as it's not divisive.

I think it would be cool to meet Charlie P. in small setting like that. I could tell him Thank you in person.

Oakshire is getting famous! Having both Charlie AND Denny at the same time? Bet they're thinking "Ninkasi who?"

Advocacy for craft beer and homebrewing is part of who we are and what we stand for...

It was very cool.  He'd been touring our fermentation district with Peter all afternoon.  He'd already hit several breweries.  we had a great chat and he introduced me to a woman named Mary Beth who lives here.  She was the 2nd person ever to win a Ninkasi award.

I know you're the tall guy in black but which one is he?  The one with the hat or the bald guy in green?

Im pretty sure Denny is the guy on the right who looks like he spent a career talking Brian Wilson out of his room. Charlie is the distinguished looking fellow

Denny is the young fella with wrist watch.
