After sampling the Prickly Pear Braggot, the BF and I took a short jaunt-just across the street- to check out the happy hour. (Apparently Portlanders love Happy Hours, so at Portland Monthly we’re trying to profile one a week). Though it was held at weird hours (2-5? Who’s even off work then?) and the BF didn’t like the pigs in a blanket (“kinda burnt”), the fondue was to die for. Read my post about it here.

One of the best things about being a journalist is getting to try new things before they’re available to the public, or try things you normally wouldn’t (in this case, because I couldn’t afford to!) I was lucky enough to cover the release of the new Widmer Brothers Prickly Pear Braggot (half beer, half mead) and wrote about it for Bar Pilot.
The best part was getting to take home my own bottle of the fancy $10 beer that I’d never buy in the store normally. Can’t wait to pop it open with the boy for some semi-special occasion!
