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.
