The local weekly paper has a story about a new internship via the Oregon Brewer’s Guild. This is awesome for multiple reasons but the two biggest are first, that it is there to help elevate underrepresented people in craft beer.
Getting more people in to the scene gives us better beer, full stop.
Second, and just as important, the internship is paid.
Which is how it should be. Work that is not paid isn’t work. It’s exploitative bullshit and I’m glad they aren’t doing that.
