Flowers and friends help new bottle “shoppe” celebrate opening

26 Jul

Congrats, Amanda and Abe, on launch of your new venture. From my quick walk-through, the Volcanic Bottle Shoppe has a great selection of bottled beers you won’t find at other Hood River retailers, plus four taps featuring a rotating lineup of compelling Oregon craft brews. A nice addition to our choice selection of home-grown craft brewers.

Preparing for the Feb. 24 grand opening celebration, proprietor Amanda Goeke pulls a draft for an early customer.

Note from Amanda Goeke about grand opening celebration Saturday, July 24, at the new Volcanic Bottle Shoppe. “We’ll begin the celebration at 3pm with free food (cookout in the beer garden) and free music by Spruce, and we’ll keep on celebrating until everybody leaves (but at least through 9pm). We have 5 beers on draft, over 125 types of bottled beer, and almost 50 types of wine (and some na stuff like specialty sodas). We’d love to see you there, so I hope you can make it at some point during the day.” The Volcanic Bottle Shoppe is at 1410 12th St. in Hood River, 541.436.1226

Volcanic Bottle Shoppe brings more beer to thirsty world

13 Jul

You may recall us tipping you off that Amanda Goeke and Abe Stevens were planning a “bottle shoppe” on the Heights — a place, in short, to buy bottled beers from around the world. After much work, they opened their Volcanic Bottle Shoppe this past weekend. They’re at 1410 12th St., just north of Shortt Supply, and open from noon to 9 p.m. They’ve also got a pretty active Facebook page, for those of you who would rather talk about beer in cyberspace than over a cold pint. FYI, it’s not just pre-bottled beer. You can bring your growler jug and they’ll top it off for subsequent consumption. Cheers.
