Minors --Now Allowed at the OBF!
This just in:
The Oregon Brewers Festival (OBF) is pleased to announce that, as in the past, minors under age 21 will be allowed all-hours access to the 20th annual Oregon Brewers Festival, provided they are accompanied by a parent. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission granted permission for minors/parents to attend after receiving a new OBF compliance plan.Power to the (little) people!
"After thoroughly reviewing the Oregon Brewers Festival's amended proposal, we believe it meets our licensing and enforcement concerns regarding minor patronage at the 2007 festival," explained Rudy Williams, OLCC deputy director. "We appreciate the OBF's willingness to work with the OLCC to help satisfy the public safety interests of Oregonians."
"We are thrilled that the OLCC has made this decision," said Art Larrance, founder of the OBF. "The festival has a long-standing history of being a family-friendly event. We promote responsible drinking, and as a result, we have responsible attendees who come together to celebrate our local culture."
