The Things We Like


The Harmon Taproom has a brand new seasonal beer, the Ipsut Creek Red Ale. Light to medium bodied and brewed with four different malted barleys to create a bright red-copper color, this grain bill is balanced out with Falconer’s flight, Amarillo, Cascade, and Citra hops in the kettle. Plus 10 pounds each of Amarillo and Centennial whole leaf hops for dry hopping. Smooth and hoppy! The Harmon Taproom is located at 204 St. Helens Ave.

The fine folks at The Grand Cinema lament the closing years of 35mm film and don’t want to lose it entirely. Starting July 27-28, every month they will bring in a classic Grind House 35mm print to the Grand. The key is that they’ll ONLY play the film on 35mm. It is creating a lot of buzz already, even nationally, with a lot of sponsors signing on for giveaways at each screening. The first 3 films are: July 27-28 “Evil Dead;” Aug. 24-25 “Demons” and Sept. 28-29 “The Return of the Living Dead.” Showtime is 9:09 p.m.
