Business briefs for Sept. 28

Ale sales will benefit local veterans programs

Sandy River Brewery and Public House is donating $1 of every Memorial Ale sold to benefit a local veterans organization.

Brewery owners Trisha and Jim Danielson will collect the proceeds in a large jar, painted in an American theme by Eric Dabney, throughout the year.

Memorial Day weekend they will break open the jar and donate the money collected to home renovations for disabled soldiers and college funds for the children of fallen soldiers.

A faster lift up the mountain

Last week, Mt. Hood Meadows added a high-speed quad chair at its base, offering skiers and snowboards a faster ride up to mid-mountain -- by 800 more skiers an hour than before.

The new chair replaces the original Yellow lift, which was constructed in 1967.
