When Jeff and Erin Smith founded Bushwhacker in Portland, there were only four cideries in the state.  That was just three years ago, and one of the reason there are so many more now (15?) is thanks to Bushwhacker.  It may well be the most well-stocked cider store in the US, and the Smiths make their own cider to boot.  There are no bigger boosters of the product in the Northwest.  To celebrate their third anniversary, Bushwhacker will be hosting a shindig this Saturday.  The festivities will include eight NW ciders: Bushwhacker Peach Ginger, Txa Txa Txa, Cherry Hop; Schilling Spiced Ginger; Snowdrift Cliffbreaks; 2 Towns Bad Apple; Bull Run Cranberry/Pear; plus special surprises from 2 Towns.

Stop by and say congrats.



John Holl Book Signings
John Holl is having a good year.  His new book, The American Craft Beer Cookbook is on shelves now, and over the summer, he was named the new editor of All About Beer Magazine.   He's on an Oregon swing right now that will take him to these locations.
