Sale at the Bier Stein

Seems my speculation about sales at the Bier Stein was correct. Certain beers are on sale right now. Yellow sale tags have appeared in the coolers and there is even boxes of bottles on sale. The sale selections are good right now. I managed to save quite a few bucks on some bottles just now. […]


Soft Openings at Breweries

  Grand Openings can be a lot of fun. Normally there is some fanfare and you finally get to experience the product or service you have heard about and been waiting for. “Soft Openings” on the other hand are less exciting and even off putting. For some businesses it might be a great idea to […]

Perfect for drinking in the sun by the water. Hence the theme. Here is a quick rundown of the beer from Deschutes. “Here’s one that’s clean and […]

The voting has started for the 5th annual Register-Guard Readers’ Choice Awards. The nominations have been counted and you can vote between the top 5 in each category. There are a lot of categories. Many that I cannot relate to. I didn’t even know there were five car wash places in this city. Casting a vote in […]


Renovations at Viking Braggot Company

After months of no updates from Viking Braggot Company it seems renovations have started at 520 Commercial street. At least in the bathroom.  The “coming soon” company published an update via their WordPress blog, complete with pics of the pretty good job they did remodeling the bathroom. “As we settled into the building we quickly realized that the only bathroom […]
