The Law of Beer
It's not all malt and hops - Oregon's brewers face an array of legal issues from intellectual property law to fundamental constitutional questions.
The 2006 Law of Beer Symposium features panelists from Oregon's Rogue Ales and the former director of Oregon Brewer's Guild.
It takes place on Thursday, November 16 at 7:00 P.M. in Room 110, Knight Law Center, 1515 Agate Street in Eugene. The event is sponsored by the Law and Entrepreneurship Student Association.

Craft brewer Rogue Ales was founded in Ashland, Oregon in 1988 and now makes a wide variety of traditional and experimental ales in Newport. The company won four out of 11 gold medals at the 2005 International Beer Competition in England. The competition rates packaged beers and ciders.
The Oak Bottom Public House is a microbrewery and restaurant in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Panelist Parker cofounded the brewpub with Jerry Fechter, another Oregon microbrew renaissance figure.
