LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) - The connection between beer and the field of political science may not be overt, but according to Jeff Dense, craft brewing is making an indelible impact on Oregon’s economy.
Dense is a professor with EOU’s philosophy, politics and economics program. He’ll share his research on beer and beer festivals in the region in an interactive lecture May 9.
The event starts at 6:30 p.m., followed by a tasting at 7:30 at the Stage Door Theater at 1010 Adams Ave. Entrance is in the alley.
Admission to the lecture is free. Tickets to participate in the tasting are $5 and purchase includes one 8-ounce glass of beer, with a limit of five tickets per person.
