Local bartender Jeffrey Morgenthaler has a nice post about all the wonderful things that make Oregon an alcoholic’s paradise. Good bartenders, wild hops, and the same latitude as Burgundy, France are among the few things that bring Oregon up to the level of famed drinking states like New York, Louisiana, Kentucky and California. While Democratic state legislators are eager to increase taxes on our beer, at least there are many other boozy blessings in our state.
While you’re at it, you should check out Morgenthaler’s “Eight Things You Should Never Say to Your Bartender,” and his posts on Repeal Day, a holiday all bar-going Americans should celebrate.
