Let’s hear a big welcome to Melanee Meegan, the Minnesota Beer Activist! She works at Peace Coffee in Minneapolis and is the first person in the extended Beer Activist blog network.
That’s a photo of her drinking a glass of t’ella (Ethiopian homebrew) in a hut somewhere along the road to Mt. Wenchi. It was taken when she came to visit Ethiopia in 2005 to visit some of the coffee farmers that grow beans sold by Peace Coffee and other members of the fair trade Cooperative Coffees importing coop.
She’ll be posting here occassionally as the mood hits her. I’m hoping she’ll blog about some fair trade coffee / beer drinks and about the local brewing scene in the Minnesota environs. Her first post is below.
