Job well done!

Where's the homebrew?

I like a Govenor who goes tieless.  I think you might have overdressed a bit Denny.

Is the guy to your left a homebrewer? (he has no facial hair)

Yep.  From L to R, it's State Sen. Floyd Prozanski, sponsor of the bill (and a hell of a homebrewer!), Chris Hummert from the Oregon Home Brewers Alliance, Gov. John Kitzhaber (what you can't see is the faded blue jeans, cowboy boots, and silver belt buckle with a big "K" on it), me, Greg Bolt of the OHBA (who did a lot of the heavy lifting), and Ted.

The guv had another meeting to go to, so we just left homebrew for him.  Then we went back to Floyd's office and partied!

Thanks, Ron.  It should be a milestone for all homebrewers, I hope.  We now have the most liberal homebrew law in the country according to Gary.  I hope it becomes the model for other states.

Nice job, all.  Shows what happens when you mess with homebrewers in the PNW.

So what's the badge-looking thing on several of your lapels?

Chris had badges made for "Homebrew Independence Day".  There weren't enough for everybody, so I gave mine to Greg in appreciation of all the work he did.  He was the one who first made contact with Floyd.  His background as newspaper reporter was invaluable to keep abreast of what was going on in the bill.

Ah, I get it now.  You're listing the folks in the original pic and not the one in this post.  Was driving me crazy trying to find the sixth guy in that pic :)

I know...it was scary to think that the 3rd guy from the left was their Governor.  ;)

Oh, I don't know...  Things would be different.  Different can be a good thing.   ;)
