Ohio Craft Brewers Association: Interview Session

March 13, 2014 Darrell 0

Mary MacDonald wandered onto the latest episode of the Ohio Beercast. For those that don’t know, Mary is the executive director of the Ohio Craft Brewers Association (OCBA) and she has held that seat since September 2013. As the new/first executive director Mary gives us a few nuggets of information about what it’s like to be in her shoes and the goals of the OCBA. For those of you that do not know about the OCBA this will be your first introduction to it. But the quick sound bite of it all is it’s center/homebase to unite and connect the Ohio craft brewers and if you made to the Winter Warmer Fest in Cleveland you have been witness to the OCBA as they are the organizers that annual event.
