Another one of our new cocktails, the Amar-Beer (pictured on right): Amaro di Angostura (big bottle pictured on the left) & Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA. Recognize the amaro or the bottle next to it? The former is a more potable version of the most famous bitter it's next to. The drink tastes like cinnamon and grapefruit. Or we can make you and Old Fashioned/Manhattan spin with it. #beerdrinkersegway
