Europeans have long enjoyed wine on tap and in jugs and bottles to go so it’s only fair that Oregon should join in the fun. Last year, our state passed a wine growler law that was quickly bogged down in red tape and bureaucracy. Happily, that red tape at the federal level has been untangled with a recent change of heart by the federal Alcohol, Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB.) Now Oregonians can legally fill their wine growlers from a small but growing number of retailers and wineries.

The residents of the City of Roses are a conscientious bunch who pay attention to excess packaging so expect this trend to grow as more establishments set up their wine taps, alongside their beer taps. For those who are ready to dive into the wine pool head first, two of Portland’s urban wineries offer wine growlers for sale as well as refills.
