Portland vs. Seattle food fight The latest issue of Sunset Magazine pits two regional cities against each other in a foodie (and drinkie) showdown comparing chefs, restaurants, trends, variety and more to see which city can claim to be the best in the region. And, while Seattle took the ultimate title (bogus we say!), Portland handily smacked down Seattle in the booze and caffeine category thanks in no small part to Distillery Row! From the feature...

Distillery Row got a nice shout out in the Seattle Weekly "Voracious" Blog as one of the 10 Reasons Seattle Should Be Jealous of Portland! From the article: Put down the torches. Please, don't round up a mob to run me out of town. I heart Seattle, big time. But . . . Every trip to the lovely Rose City makes me pine: Why don't we have this, that, or the other in our fair city? I'm not even including Powell's, the Trailblazers, or the whole no-sales-tax thing because those are so damn obvious. No, this lineup of stuff that makes me pea-green with envy is purely food-centric. Coming in at Numero Cinco...

There was a great article in the Portland Tribune about Distillery Row and this Friday's TOAST event (The Oregon Artisan Spirits Tasting). Excerpts of the article are included below, and you can read the entire article at the link above. Oregon distillers boost spirits BY ANNE MARIE DISTEFANO Appropriately enough, Portland’s Distillery Row doesn’t follow a straight line. It’s a zigzag tour from Stone Barn Brandy Works in the Brooklyn neighborhood down to House Spirits, Deco Distilling and New Deal Distillery in the lower Hawthorne area and Integrity Spirits near the Morrison Bridge. They are all open for tastings, at varying times, with the exception of the new Deco Distilling, whose tasting room will open soon. [Editor's note: It's now open on weekends!] That’s just one cluster in a city and state where stills are popping up everywhere. The Oregon Distillers Guild has 23 members,...

Row distilleries are collaborating once again to bring customers a new experience in craft distilling with a distinctive “Portland” twist: Coffee spirits! Distillery Row is proud to present a comprehensive line of small batch, artisan coffee liquors. “Coffee is as ubiquitous in Portland as is rain and great food,” says Distillery Row President Michael Heavener. “It’s something we both take for granted and yet appreciate on an intimate level. It was only natural for the local distillers to gravitate toward including coffee in their creations. And in the typical Distillery Row style, no two distillers had the same approach which always makes for an interesting experience to contrast and compare the various spirits. There’s something for everyone.” Following are the coffee creations and their distillers ...
