The first Portland Beer Wiki meeting was a success

Last night was our pre-kick off meeting for the portland beer wiki. We had a good turn out including fellow beer writers; the Oregonian's Beer columnists John Foyston, the Oregon Brewers Guild's director Brian Butenschoen, and enthusiast. Everyone was excited about the project and wants to get involved. We are initially getting people interested and creating a workflow for how we should scale this project. I teamed up with local Wiki company AboutUS to help us build this community based project. Mark Dilley was on hand last night to answer wiki question.

While anyone can contribute now to the Portland Beer Wiki, we will be making a lot of changes in the next few weeks. Once we feel like we have a good start we will then release it to the world and get everyone to start talking about this great project and promoting it. The excitement and commitment that local beer writers, enthusiasts, and the Oregon Brewers Guild have expressed will make this a great local beer resource.

Stay Tuned
