OUR STORY - Snaphots of the journey

Mark's story - The world of beer was a very different place in 1987, the year I started my "professional" brewing career. National brewing giants were homogenizing the beer scene as quickly as you could croak "Bud Light", Coors was finally a national phenomenon with the Silver Bullet, and Regional brewers were being bought up and consolidated into the "House of Heileman".  It seemed unfathomable to us in the Northwest at the time, that vaunted and historic brewers like Olympia, Weinhards,  and Rainier, as well as countless others would be snatched up, consolidated, sold off like mortgage backed securities, and eventually shuttered, only to become "marketing entities"  like PBR.  The world of craft beer was in its' infancy, and the idea of working in small upstart brewery was somewhere between ludicrous and laughable.  Columbia River Brewery, later known as BridgePort was where I got my start.  Not the first micro in Oregon, that honor resided with the very briefly operating Cartwright brewing, but by 1987, the oldest craft brewery.
