All the Fun Stuff at Bar Keeper
Bar Keeper moved locations and I finally made it to the new store. And it’s beautiful! It’s so spacious and well organized. You can find all your home bar needs there.
I immediately zoomed over to the bitters bar and tasted some locally-made ones like Drunken Crane bitters. Find every flavor you can imagine plus your trusty Angostura bitters.
I also adore all the vintage glassware at Bar Keeper. And there are some fun naughty ones from yesteryear.
Summer is coming and that means picnics! I usually pack my Minty popup bar up for fun nights at the Hollywood Bowl. Mini bottles of vermouth will come in handy.
And speaking of vermouth, I happened in on a tasting in the back room. I tried Lo-Fi aperitifs from Napa Valley. I really dug the gentian amaro. It’d be great in a spritz. I can see the sweet vermouth in a martini riff but I will have to think about the application for the dry vermouth. I almost don’t want to use it in a typical dry martini.
Tastings are frequently posted to the Bar Keeper instagram so keep up with them there.
And while you’re there, don’t forget to take a picture for the ‘gram and hashtag it #barkeeperfloor. It’s better than the PDX airport carpet for sure!
