Little Bites: High Proof PDX Spirited Guide Launches, Includes Central Oregon | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Little Bites: High Proof PDX Spirited Guide Launches, Includes Central Oregon



High Proof PDX Spirited Guide Launches, Includes Central Oregon

Oregon has a vibrant craft distilling scene. In Bend alone we have four, and Portland has more urban distilleries than any other city. Karen Locke has made navigating that scene, specifically in Portland, easier with her new book, "High-Proof PDX: A Spirited Guide to Portland's Craft Distilling Scene." The book includes behind-the-scenes information, history and even a few hangover cures. Even though the book has a focus on Portland, it includes distilleries in Central Oregon and around the state. The book was released this month. Find it online and in Oregon Whole Foods stores.
