One More Reason We Love Oregon

Mark your calendars, folks—August 11 has been declared Brothers Day in Oregon by Governor Ted Kulongoski and Portland Mayor Tom Potter in honor of brothers Kurt and Rob Widmer of Widmer Brothers Brewing fame, and brothers everywhere. To kick off this upcoming holiday, Widmer Brothers has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia Northwest to raise money for the organization's mentoring program. Beer drinkers can join the celebration by sending a personalized Brother’s Day e-card from the Brother’s Day website, and for every card sent, the Widmer brothers will donate $1 to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Next up: Kurt and Rob Widmer will be working to make this a national holiday in appreciation of brothers across the country.
