We love Lagunitas beer! And for that reason, we are absolutely ecstatic to have them as our annual sponsor! If you haven't had their beer, give it a try at one of our concerts...you won't be disappointed!
A message from the company: "From points distant and beyond we all converged on Petaluma in 1993 and '94 with an unenunciated desire to be more than we were before. The core of Lagunitas came from Chicago, St Louis, Memphis, Walker Creek, and the highlands of Quincy."
"The Chicago contingent initiated the brewing and the gravitational effect of its suchness did the rest. We all loved the beer but the mission was larger than the ordinary joy of a hoppy-sweet quaff. It was driven unseen by an urge to communicate with people, to find our diasporidic tribe, and to connect with other souls adrift on a culture that had lost its center and spun its inhabitants to the four winds to wander lost and bereft with a longing to re-enter the light. Beer, we have learned, has always been a good lubricant for social intercourse!"
"The Lagunitas Brewing Co. was not so much an act of ordinary 'foundling' as it was willed into being by the unspoken desire of supportive beer-lovers in Northern California after which they continued to nurture their creation and urged us forward to fulfill the unifying needs of that same beer-loving diaspora from coast to coast and beyond. It is good to have friends!"
The Oregon Marijuana Business Conference returns to Southern Oregon for another important one-day cannabis event. We are the biggest and most established conference in the state with fierce networking! With cannabis laws receiving overwhelming support from lawmakers across the country, both medical and recreational, this is not the event to miss. Oregon is positioned to be one of the leaders in the new cannabis industry, and we will have the top people in the industry covering regulations and legislation, and a chance for ticket holders to speak directly with our expert panelists about the unique issues affecting them in this long overdue time of transition to full cannabis legalization. Meet and greet the legendary music icon Henry Rollins! Former lead singer of the punk band Black Flag, Henry has taken up the cause of cannabis legalization and is on tour doing his best to change the hearts and minds of those not already on the cannabis scene. Always a fiery and compassionate speaker, Henry will also be delivering this year's keynote speech at the Ashland OMBC!
