Winter Beer Fest Ahead

Suttle Lodge Virtual Beer Festival offers a variety of beers and fun—all to support independent restaurants in Oregon

More Locations Offering To-Go Cocktails

Where to get those drinks to go, before they go away
Several weeks ago, as to-go cocktails began to be a thing in Oregon, we published a very brief list of some of the places starting to offer to-go cocktails.

Whiskeyed Away

News and trends in local whiskey
If there was any time better than the middle of winter to revel in the craft of whiskey, we don't know when it is.

Get Your Drinks and Run

A sampling of offerings from local bars, now offering drinks to go
It’s official, and available for only a limited time: Oregon now allows restaurants and bars to sell mixed drinks to customers buying takeout or delivery—so long as those drinks come with a “substantial food item.” On Dec. 23, Gov. Kate Brown signed into law SB 1801, also known as the Restaurant Relief Act of 2020, which allowed establishments to sell and deliver cocktails that come in a sealed container.

Party on with the Next Take-Home Brewfest

The curated multi-pack is a Covid-era trend
Sure, you could head over to one of Central Oregon's fine beer-cooler establishments and put together your own 24 pack of brews from sites around the state—but in the era of near-endless opportunities to get exactly what you want, whenever you want it, there's something retro-cool about having someone else choose the selection. Silver Moon's Take-Home Brewfest was one of the entities that kicked off a COVID-era trend of curating packs of brews and serving up a host of other "extras," intended to offer some of the vibes one might get by attending a full-blown brew fest—something none of us, now more than seven months into this pandemic, have had enough of lately.

Crater Lake Enters the Tequila(ish) Game

A focus on rare or unique spirits for Bend distillery turns to an agave-based spirit
