You’d figure that bringing together books and beer would be a slam dunk, especially in Portland. But we didn’t get our first official bookstore/bar until November of last year.
The Rose City Book Pub, located at 1329 NE Fremont, is a godsend for those of us who love to read and drink, often at the same time, and enjoy doing it in the company of like-minded folks. In addition to a collection of used books, and a tap list heavy on Northwest beers, Rose City Book Pub serves food, wine, and cocktails, and hosts regular events, such as readings, live music, book clubs, fundraisers, and study groups.
To find out more, we’re fortunate to have Elise Schumock, the owner of Rose City Book Pub, live with us in the KBOO newsroom.
