New Deal Distillery Dinner LET um EAT

LET um EAT Takeover Dinner at New Deal Distillery: Friday, July 24th

DATE: Friday, July 24th
TIME: 7:00 pm
WHERE: New Deal Distillery, SE Portland


The story of New Deal Distillery is one of passion and community. Tom Burkleaux and Matthew VanWinkle of New Deal Distillery are the ones who paved the craft-distilling road in Portland, starting the smallest licensed distillery in America in 2004. They credit Portland’s craft brewing and food communities for creating such a collaborative and supportive environment. From distilling his own vodka in 2001, Tom has now grown New Deal to have over 10 different spirits available at any time.

The table for the New Deal Distillery Takeover will be set right where the magic happens.
