You may know the difference between a lager and an IPA, but do you know about the crop that makes Oregon beer so delectable? Join historian Peter Kopp and Oregon Hops & Brewing Archives for a book talk on "Hoptopia: A World of Agriculture and Beer in Oregon’s Willamette Valley" next Wednesday. And of course, we'll have beer (thanks to our friends at McMenamins Breweries!) http://ohs.org/events/hoptopia.cfm
