Portland, Oregon is widely known as the craft beer capital, but did you know that Chinese immigrant workers helped launch the craft beer industry? Join MOCA for a screening of Bitter Harvest, a short documentary in three parts, each telling the story of the Chinese immigrant workers who helped found Oregon’s craft beer industry. Each video will be accompanied by commentary from the documentary maker, Ivy Lin, who will offer further insights on the role of Chinese workers in the creation of the West Coast wine and beer industry.
