By the Numbers: Drink Local

Beer and wine are more than beverages in Oregon; they are staples of the landscape, both physical and economic. Vintners and brewers make good use of the region’s temperate climate and excellent soil to produce world-class handcrafted libations. In turn, every aspect of the process—from the growing of hops and grapes, to processing, to tourism—keeps the state’s economy flowing. (Do we need to remind you to drink responsibly?)
