The downloading and discovery of a new amazing wine app is the highlight of this week’s Wine Down Eugene.
The Snakebite and Black. A drink surrounded with rumor and urban myth, that some pubs in England apparently refuse to serve. Does it have the affect people say? Find out here.
Being the fan that I am of the wines from my beautiful home state of Oregon, and everything that has to do with the Oregon wine industry; including, the wineries and vineyards, the winemakers, the harvesters, the gorgeous rolling hill wine country, the thriving varietals and the hundreds of micro-climates throughout the state, I always get super excited when there’s a new addition to the already fabulous list of wineries we have.
Beer Camp Across America is a traveling beer festival/celebration for the entire craft beer community, bringing together brewers and the fans who have buoyed their success.

When I opened the box to find four vibrantly-labeled Deer Creek Vineyards wines, I knew I was in for a treat.
Let’s call it luck that a friend called and said, “Get down to Tacovore, it is their soft opening.” As luck would have it, tacos and tequila were just what the doctor ordered.

When looking for beer to go with our Pho soup last month, I grabbed what I thought was 10 Barrel S1nist0r Black, a surprisingly light bodied dark beer which would pair well with the brothy soup. I could not have been more wrong. What I ended up with was 10 Barrel’s Project: Failed Red Ale.
