Portland Spirit

We’re off to Portland tomorrow, without the kids, for an anniversary dinner cruise on the Portland Spirit. Should be a pretty good trip; I may even get to finally see Star Wars Episode II.

Here’s an interesting little piece of news/trivia: Deschutes Brewery is apparently bottling their beers in a new bottle (they were simply plain brown 12-ounce bottles): brown with a nice raised imprint of hops around the bottle just below the neck, and gold caps (formerly they were silver). These were from a six-pack of Mirror Pond Pale Ale picked up at Fred Meyers today. I can’t find any mention of this bottle upgrade on their web site, but maybe it’s to help celebrate their 14 year anniversary.
