With the holidays upon us, it’s time to start thinking about what kind of cheer will be filling your glasses this season. With more than 550 wineries, craft breweries and artisan distilleries to choose from in Oregon, the question is: where do you start? One of the best ways is to head out and meet with the makers of all these fine libations.
The Oregon Craft Beverage Council has made it easy with their Here’s to Oregon Holiday Passport promotion. Through January 31st, eight of Oregon’s top wine, beer and spirits producers have created special offers in their tasting rooms, brewpubs and distilleries. We like to think of it as a tasty Oregon road trip designed for toasting.
According to Ed King, President of the Oregon Craft Beverage Council and founder of King Estate Winery, “There’s a reason so much attention is being paid to our products — the quality and craftsmanship of Oregon wine, beer, and spirits simply can’t be beat. Even more promising is what lies ahead.” We couldn’t agree more.
With the Here’s to Oregon Holiday Passport, you can experience first hand the quality and craftsmanship of Oregon’s spirits. All you need to do is download the passport and show it at participating member locations. The passport includes festive offerings like free wine tastings and complimentary pint glasses.
While serving Oregon’s craft beverages on your holiday table is all about good taste, it also supports thousands of families who grow and make what we love to drink.
As always, be safe and smart when you’re out on the road sampling Oregon.
