Bring Mom Out for a Beer 2012,Full Sail hosts brewery open house for Mother’s Day

By Sandra

Hood River, Or – This Mother’s Day, show your mom some love with quality time and a local beer. She’s been teaching you for years; it’s your turn to show her a thing or two. So grab your mom and swing by Full Sail, take a tour, grab a bite, have a pint and soak up the view. Share with her your favorite beer, treat her to a meal and Full Sail will treat her to dessert. Who knows? You may just convert her to a beer goddess of sorts. If she’s not already, that is.

“Having a chance to honor moms is something very special to us. A big percentage of the Full Sail crew is female and many of us are moms too. At Full Sail, we are not about business as usual. We are about truly appreciating our “human resources,” and building a culture that’s based on balancing work, life, family and friends,” said Irene Firmat, Full Sail’s Founder & CEO.  “And who’s better at achieving that balance than mothers?”

From 1-4PM on Sunday, May 13th, Mother’s Day, the Pink Boots Society has invited breweries, brewpubs, restaurants, bars and bottle shops all across the nation to raise a pint in appreciation of all moms. Full Sail will open their brewhouse doors to guests and their moms for a fun and informative guided tour of the brewery. Meet the people behind the pints and learn about the art and science of crafting beer. You’ll also see the local ingredients used to concoct Full Sail’s award winning brews and learn a plethora of Full Sail fun facts and history, including their sustainable brewing practices.

After, you can sample brews and grab a bite in the Tasting Room and Pub and Full Sail will treat mom to a free dessert with the purchase of a meal. If there is one thing a brewer loves more than great beer – it’s great food and great beer!  Full Sail’s northwest inspired menu complements their award winning brews and features seasonal, local ingredients. Tours begin and end in the Tasting Room and Pub. Tours are free of charge at 1, 2, 3 and 4pm and each tour participant will receive a complementary glass. (Kids 12 and over welcome on Tours with parent or guardian.) The Tasting Room and Pub opens at 11:00am for more information call 541-386-2247.
