Rare Plant Conservation Initiative Event at Pateros Creek Brewery

by CNHP Director, Dave Anderson

The Rare Plant Conservation Initiative event this past Friday at Pateros Creek Brewery was a huge success!

The event at Pateros Creek Brewery had a large turnout.

A pint for a plant! Who could resist?
Steve Jones, the owner/beermaker of Pateros Creek Brewing said this was one of the biggest private events the brewery had ever had. This is not a surprise, since what is not to love about drinking a few great beers to save biodiversity?  There are now many new fans and friends of the Rare Plant Conservation Initiative, and of Spiranthes Extra Pale Ale.  It is certainly my new favorite beer.

Byrony Wardell from WCNR and her husband John Wardell, along with  John Giodanengo
from Wildland Restoration Volunteers didn't miss their chance to sample a great beer for a great cause. 

Thanks to Steve Jones and Brad Gilbert (taproom supervisor) for hosting this event. Thank you, Pateros Creek, for the wonderful hospitality, creativity, and generosity!
