Greendrinks: beer and health care
For January, Greendrinks packed Ocean Gateway–a larger than usual venue–to support the non-profit Consumers for Affordable Health Care. About 20 percent of young adults in Portland are uninsured, making Greendrinks a prime event to encourage beer lovers to enroll before March 31. Greendrinks also promotes drinking vessel creativity. Hmm, $10 to buy a cup or $5 to bring your own vessel (BYOV) for two pours? Measuring cup, anyone? Oversized coffee mug? Recycled pickle jar?
