Welcome to another installment of the Oregon Brewery Running Series Podcast; Inspiring Oregonians to Be Active, Have Fun, and Give Back. We host family-friendly, 5K fun runs that start and end at some of Oregon’s best breweries.


Today on the podcast I’m chatting again with Ashley Rose Salvitti, the craft beer-loving owner, founder, lead pretzel necklace maker at Brewvana Portland Through Craft. This show is the second in our regular segment on the podcast where we discuss all of the fun and exciting events going on in and around Portland.

This monthly podcast episode is one where we riff on whatever random or interesting events we think you might enjoy. Because we’re all about having FUN and why not share more ways for you to do that?!

Ashley is a bit of an expert on these matters, and since we’re all about Being Active, Having Fun, and Giving Back here at the Oregon Brewery Running Series, I thought we could help all of you, our listeners and event participants, discover more ways to do those things when you’re not participating in our events.

In 2018, I also interviewed Ashley for the podcast. That conversation focused on all the fantastic things Brewvana does to help you explore the craft scene in Portland. After you have finished listening to this episode,  listen to that episode here! It’s quite fun.

Whenever I see Ashley at any beer type event, or randomly out around the city, she’s always very warm, engaging, and full of energy and positivity. As you’ll hear in this interview, she loves beer, but she loves bringing people together to enjoy and learn about the entire craft experience here in Portland, even more.

EVENTS in October

Below are just a few of the events we mention in our conversation. We talk about a lot of fun stuff, so be sure to listen to the whole thing. As you can see, there are a lot of fresh hop and Oktoberfest events. Here are some for quick reference:
