MONTAVILLA— The Montavilla neighborhood is getting its first brewery. The New School brings first word that Montavilla Brew Works will set up shop inside the long-vacant, 1,600-square-food Daugherty Auto Service building. Homebrewer Michael Kora is behind the project, and plans for a tasting room where guests are encouraged to bring in outside food. Projected opening: summer 2014. [New School]

VARIOUS LOCATIONS— The scoopers at Salt & Straw embrace Valentine's Day expectations for its February specials menu, pairing with local chocolatiers for an all-chocolate assault. Starting tomorrow, flavors like Bacon Raleigh Bar (inspired by Xocolatl de David's signature bar), Peruvian Pisco and Chocolate (a sorbet featuring Woodblock's Peruvian-origin chocolate), and Boozy Bon Bon (with Alma Chocolate, Madeira wine, and rum-soaked prunes). A portion of proceeds from all February's flavors will benefit marriage equality organization Oregon United for Marriage. More information here. [EaterWire]

NORTHEAST— Mini-pie bakery Pie Spot is celebrating its first anniversary as a brick-and-mortar with a fundraising celebration tomorrow, February 1. All day Saturday, the Spot will proceeds of its "Joy of Almond pie hole" to Cascadia's Project Respond, a non-profit mental-health crisis response team. More information here. [EaterWire]
