Thanks for sharing Rick. Sounds like we need to partner and have the next Silicon Valley Beer Week coincide with DESIGN West 2014!!!

Thanks, Rick for updating us on the Silicon Valley buzz. I'm glad the Valley is still "hop"ping.

@Kfield....Karen.... some time ago EELife ran a pub quiz....

http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=58&doc_id=1286878

By all accounts it was an awesome evening.  I couldn't be there but had almost as much fun coming up with some of the trivia questions.    Sylvie Barak who organised it now works for Atmel (Hi Sylvie!) but maybe they would sponsor another one.   There's an idea for you......

this beer may not as good as Harbin beer or Qingdao beer made in China:)

@zhgreader I've had Qingdao beer both in China and here in the US and you are right--it is pretty incredible! But these craft beers are also amazing--why don't you plan to come to DESIGN West next year in San Jose and do a taste test??

I used to love Tsingtao (alternate label or different beer?) to wash down food at Hong Kong restaurants when I lived there as a budding EE Times reporter before anyone was talking about smartphones. It was good. So is Singha, Thailand's beer.

Singapore and the Philippines lack a good brew in my opinion and Koreans may have beat Japan in LCDs and about everything else electronic, but Japan still has better beer. Now the Belgians have great semiconductor research at IMEC and some of the world's best brews, too.

I think Design West 2014 should have a beer tasting session with products from all the electronics hot spots in the world.

Too many to count

Here in the Portland, Oregon area, we have so many different craft beers and brew pubs, I simply can't keep track. There are a fair number that brew and sell in their restaurants and nowhere else, nor do they carry anything but their own product. Many are also bottled and sold in stores, or just shipped in kegs to other local establishments. One of the big disadvantages of being exclusive is that if I don't like their brew style, I can't come back and have a different brand.

We also still have a few chip fabs up this way - both potato and silicon.

Portland is an IPA heaven (do those big Intel chip fabs have an influence on your beer production?)...but Silicon Valley is caching up.
