The Hop & Vine's "Ampersand" Collaborative Series in Bottles

Yetta Vorobik, owner of North Portland's The Hop & Vine, has embarked on a collaborative spree with local craft brewers and winemakers to produce the H & V's own private label collection of beers and wines. Dubbed the "Ampersand (&)", the first beer and wine in the series are both available now.
