the market, now the 21 Portwood is getting a 37% ($91 to $125) price increase from
the Oregon LCC come Feb 1.
I assume this is part of their plan to reposition the 21 as a premium malt. I'm sure
they have a strategy here, but the only result I can see is that I'll be drinking less

Truly a generous offer. I may take you and your friends up on it. I'm about a 1/2 hour west of Portland. But I think I would be better served convincing the wife that we need a weekend in Victoria. I haven't been in years. Do they still have the direct ferry from Seattle?
Lawrence wrote:Yes, a passenger only ferry from downtown Seattle to downtown Victoria and then the car/passenger ferry is from Port Angeles. There is also a another car ferry that departs from the San Jaun Islands and docks in Sidney about 20 minutes north of Victoria. If you do come up for the weekend let me know,
Absolutely. I feel that I owe you a dram just for getting to read your sage advice.
Yeah, probably wait until May-ish. Butchart Gardens is spectacular then.
Isn't there a malt distillery on Vancouver Island (either running already or in development)?
Granted it's a big island, but civilization seems clustered at the southern end. Still pretty wild up north if memory serves.
Then again, distilleries often arise on the outskirts of civilization (see Kentucky).
