Before my body was cold at SF Weekly and had barely planted my feet on Oregon soil, the first thing I did was pitch myself to Willamette Week, having noticed they oddly did not have a beer writer in the fold. How did Beervana not have steady beer coverage?! Well, if no one was doing it, I was just the carpetbagger for the job. This story on then-brand-new brewpub Burnside Brewing was actually my second post for the Willy Week blog, the first is conveniently linked from within it. Oh, and the third now seems quaint since it’s about cherished publican Yetta Vorobik expanding Hop & Vine before, jumping 3 years into the future, she’d leave us to start a family with Crooked Stave founder Chad Yakobson over in Denver.
