Over at the Capitol

In the beer-is-like-wine category, Eat Salem has news of a Ninkasi dinner at La Capitale.

Ninkasi also has a new summer seasonal! Radiant Summer Ale.
Crisp and flavorful, Radiant Summer Ale is a clean finishing summer offering in the Ninkasi tradition. The smooth malt character is balanced by a clean noble hop presence, the perfect compliment to a glorious summer day! 6% alc./vol. 40 ibus.

And a couple of updates from the Legislature...

Late last month the Honest Pint Act died in committee.

The prospect of an increase in the beer tax continues, however, and Rep. Ben Cannon (D-Portland), one of its principal sponsors, and a little singed by the outraged reaction from brewers & drinkers, offers a thoughtful reconsideration at BlueOregon. The course-correction appears to offer a viable compromise. At Beervana, Alworth shows an interesting correlation between tax rates and number of breweries per capita.
