This little ditty begins in a car. Our two owner/operators, Richard Noel and Duncan Burrell, hopped in a rental car from PDX and began a tour of northwest Oregon. Meeting with brewery owners and brewers along the way, Rich and Dunc promised quality and attention to detail if they'd entrust us with their beers. Luckily they did. That journey continued to other states and will continue to grow as we spread the word that we always pay attention to glassware, temperature and dates for each beer. These aren’t the worst business trips.
