We are happy to announce our Standing Stone’s brewmaster Larry Chase is the newest board member for the Brewers Association! It’s a national organization that works to promote and protect small and independent brewers, their beers and the brewing community. Larry says he’s excited to be a part of such a vital resource for the industry and is looking forward to taking the responsibility of helping to lead the organization.
“Ever since I started brewing I have gotten so much from the Association” he says. “People already on the board are the rock-stars of the industry and I am thrilled to help and lead.”
Larry is currently serving as vice-chair of the brewpub committee, and also sits on the organization’s finance committee. Larry emphasizes he won’t only be leading – he’ll also be learning, and bringing new insight and ideas back to Southern Oregon.
“I am looking forward to helping guide the organization as the craft beer industry continues to grow. I will be sitting on the board with big names in the industry and expect to learn from other colleagues on the board.”
Larry will be heading to Boulder at the end of the month for the first quarterly board meeting of the year. Join us in lifting up a glass to congratulate Larry and to wish him success in his new beer role!
