Craft Brew Drinkup, Tuesday February 10th
When: Tuesday, February 10th - 7pm - 10pm (ish)
Where: eBay Offices - 1400 SW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97201
The Craft Brew Drinkup at Code4lib 2015 is all about sharing and enjoying good beer with fellow conference attendees. The idea is to bring bottles of your favorite beers or non-alcoholic drinks.
While you're not obligated to bring local brews from wherever you're from, participants are definitely encouraged to bring brews that you think is special and might be somewhat hard for others outside your area to find. Homebrew is especially welcome as are non-alcoholic beverages. Hot water will be provided for those who want to bring tea blends.
This year, eBay has agreed to host the Code4Lib Drinkup at their offices in downtown Portland, a 6 block walk from the conference hotel. Attendees should expect to bring something to share, either drinks or snacks. Cups will be provided by the host.
Please Note: The space must be cleaned up and all folks gone no later than 11pm.
Please sign up on the Craft Drinkup wiki page to share the brews and bottles you're thinking of bringing along and special requests can be made, but don't expect that your wishes will be granted.
