Below are the Official Sponsors of the 2014 Holiday Ale Festival:
Pioneer Courthouse Square is located in the heart of Downtown Portland and is proud to be celebrating its 30th anniversary this year!.
It is an urban park affectionately known as the City's "living room". Prior to its grand opening in 1984, a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was created to manage programming and daily operations. The non-profit advocacy groups' ongoing mission is to activate and enrich the environment of the City of Portland's premiere public Park and gathering space for the benefit of Portland's citizens and visitors. Working in partnership with the City of Portland, the non-profit organization has successfully fulfilled the Park's prominent public role with the help of community volunteers and private sector contributions. In recent years, through this unique public-private management model, the Park has been recognized as one of the most successful public spaces in the United States.
Each year the Park is activated by more than 300 programmed event days made possible through citizen-driven initiative and the generosity of private sector sponsors throughout the Portland region. This scope of annual programming contains iconic annualized community traditions and unique "once in a lifetime" events that reflect the civic role of the Park within its community and the evolving needs of the citizenry that it supports.
Nestled on the crest of the Cascade Mountain range, no other place on earth combines a deep lake so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs almost two thousand feet high; and two picturesque islands. Crater Lake is a natural wonder known world-wide for its depth and clarity, and also the inspiration for our soda line.
We're proud of our company history, which started when a recipe for homemade root beer was created by the Gouverneur family of Southern Indiana. The youngest of four children, Curt Gouverneur took a particular interest in helping to craft homemade sodas – paying close attention to the quality ingredients needed to make a truly gourmet soda.
Curt worked to create three additional varieties – orange cream, vanilla cream and lemon lime bitter – and joined Ocean Mist Sales & Marketing to make his dream of brewing gourmet sodas a reality. Ocean Mist Sales & Marketing is affiliated with the Yoshida Group of companies. Until recently we have only offered our sodas in kegs, but as a result of this affiliation, we are now able to offer the same great product in retail stores.
We have always used premium ingredients, and will never compromise the quality of our truly gourmet sodas. Every drop of Crater Lake Soda is brewed and bottled in beautiful Portland, Oregon, and available in stores throughout the Pacific Northwest. We recommend you enjoy these classic American sodas served chilled, with great company!
The Oregon Lottery® was created through the initiative petition process. In November 1984 voters approved an amendment to the Oregon Constitution requiring the establishment and operation of a state lottery. Since then, the Oregon Lottery has become a critical funding source for important Oregon programs. Explore these links to learn more about the Oregon Lottery.
