It's happening. Last week, owners of SE Division's upcoming D-Street Noshery teased the coming of a cart owned by St. Helens' Captured by Porches Brewing — and brewmasters Dylan and Suzanne confirm that their "mobile public haus," in the form of a green shortbus, will have a permanent spot at the new cart pod. Porches will pour three house brews in addition to a guest tap, and pints can be enjoyed in the pod's communal seating area or to-go.
"You can grab a pint to go with your meal or just to make the bike ride home in the rain a bit warmer, and/or fill up a jug for take-out," Dylan says of the bus, which has no interior seating. "We will have growlers and mason jars available, and plan on having on-site pints in reusable containers."
"We are in the works to get an annual license," Dylan says, who adds that the lot's seating area will be licensed, not the bus itself (the OLCC will not license a mobile vehicle. Killjoys). "Just the other day an OLCC investigator showed up with the required neon green public notice placard to post up. Upon finding no walls or windows, she apparently had to call her boss for direction. No regulation existed for objection, so the placard was taped to a tree."
