And, as you probably know, we're really good at making craft beverages here in the Pacific Northwest.
As we stay indoors these days, we're shopping online to help support our local beverage-makers as they do their thing amid a troubled economy. Supporting local by drinking? Suire -- cheers to that!
Here are the roasters, wineries, distilleries and breweries that we can swear by -- great for local pickup or online ordering and shipping. The lists are not comprehensive. Know of a great beverage-maker that we left out? Leave us a comment on our Facebook page.
Order locally-roasted coffee online and have it shipped to you. Or order ahead for to-go items.
Some vintners ship bottles to you. Or you can join a wine club to get discounts and deals when it's time once again to sip out on the town.
Order kegs to go, or pick up a six-pack at a local grocery store. Distilleries will ship bottles to you -- the perfect holiday gift for the classy person in your life.
