It’s no secret that Portland’s history of brewing and craft beers is an integral part of this city’s DNA. It’s also no secret that the typical Oregonian’s views about the influx of Californians is nothing new. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, the Blitz-Weinhard company, one of Portland’s oldest breweries, capitalized on that to launch a series of ads that not only swept the zeitgeist of Portland and Oregon at large, but spawned a spin-off album and children’s television show.
Local podcasters Mark Middleton and Todd Werkhoven regularly feature a segment called “WikiWar” on their podcast called The MarkandToddcast. Mark and Todd go head-to-head to see who pulled the most interesting short articles from Wikipedia.
We’ve decided to feature some of their more interesting finds here at Weird Portland United.
