A New Portland Company Is Making Cotton Candy Hard Seltzer, Whether You Like It or Not

Old Town Brewing Enters the Hard Seltzer Race

There’s a new, Portland-made hard seltzer on the market. Upper Left, from the brewing team behind Old Town Brewing, is making spiked sparkling water, avoiding the typical fruit flavors churned out by companies like White Claw; instead, the seltzer comes in flavors like cotton candy and Key lime pie. “Don’t let the sugar-coated flavors scare you off, though,” the press release reads. “The resulting beverage finishes clean on the palette with the perfect hint of your favorite treats.” Those brave enough to try it can find cans at Zupan’s, Old Town Brewing, and Baby Doll Pizza.

Dutch Bros Goes Public and Scores

Dutch Bros, the coffee chain that started as a cart in Grants Pass, debuted on Wall Street Wednesday with a bang. Within hours of its initial public offering, its share price jumped; after listing at $23 a share, it closed that day at $36.68. It jumped another 30 percent on Thursday. A cringe-y side note: Founder Travis Boersma wore a Rage Against the Machine shirt when ringing the trade bell on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange — I guess he hasn’t seen the “Sleep Now in the Fire” video.

Jojo Trolls the PPB

Southeast Portland food cart Jojo seems to be getting into the catering business. A representative from the Portland Police Bureau emailed Jojo owner Justin Hintze, among other food cart owners, seeking potential caterers for a department dinner. Hintze replied with a proposed menu, which he shared on social media; highlights included “tear gas soufflé,” “racial profiling soup with chive oil,” and “dog shit.” See the full post on the Jojo Instagram.
