    PaWN is so doom and gloom. How about some good news to balance it out every once in a while?


    Congratulations fornicators and sinners! It's time to get your gay on!

    There is no doubt that Oregon and Colorado have some of the best local breweries, but one thing I cannot understand is how difficult it can be to find decent beer. Albeit a limited sample size, when in Denver and Albany Or I had to go to a larger grocery store to find decent beer. You can go to the crappiest redneck gas station or convenience store around here and at least find Sierra Nevada or a local brew.

    Was that a while ago? Very nearly every place that sells beer in Portland has a good selection. I can't say about Albany specifically but I don't remember the last time I have had to make a second stop in this state and I am a beer snob. Even chains like 7-11 or Trader Joes have a great selection.

    State liquor laws. Say what you will about the gestapo that is OLCC, but at least in OR you can pick up decent beer just about anywhere. In CO, unless you want to buy some BS 3.2 abv training beer, you have to go to a state licensed liquor store to pick up any thing worth your coin.

    Wow, and I bitch about the liquor stores here not being open late or on Sunday. I grew up in Cali where you could get cheap booze anywhere 24/7. But I never have issue finding something worth drinking at any store or bar around here.

    But I will admit I have gotten used to drinking a few PBR's when at the more divey or hipster places. At $1.75 a pint, I'm a cheap date. :D
