The world of whiskey (or whisky, if you please!) is far and wide, but there is no need for regional travel or crossing country lines to taste the best in Northwest beverages or a vertical line-up of single malt Scotch. Hop Scotch Beer & Scotch Festival… features a tasting flight with six whiskies handcrafted by Northwest distilleries, plus a vertical flight of five single malt Scotches from The Glenlivet. Guests can sip on Scotch from far away Scotland, stay local with Northwest whiskies, or sample both flights to test their taste buds on the difference.
