Oregon Beer A Poplular Item At Super Bowl Parties And Around The World


Millions of Americans will be participating in Super Bowl parties today. During the match between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots, many viewers will be drinking their favorite craft beer, and there's a good chance it's from Oregon. The State has become known for its micro-brew around the world including markets such as Europe, Asia, and Australia. Oregon Department of Agriculture Trade Manager Amanda Welker says big name beers are on the decline.

WELKER:  “The beers on the incline are the craft beers. Having a Super Bowl party? I think a six-pack of your favorite craft beer is the thing to bring.”

Welker says Portland, Bend, and the central part of the State are continuing to be the main hubs of craft brew popularity. She says now there are more breweries popping up in the Gorge and Southern Oregon.
