From the Editor...

Lisa Lavochkin used to live in New York City, where she worked for years in restaurants. Then, in 2009, she moved to Portland and worked for a while in a specialty section of a local Whole Foods outlet. This month, she opened Barrel, her first business. Specializing in small vineyard wines, local and regional craft beers and a soon-to-be expanding selection of hard ciders, Barrel is more than just a local beer-and-wine shop. Lavochkin sees it as a neighborhood bottle shop, an alternative to local grocery stores where the selections are often limited and, more often than not, stagnant. She plans to offer seasonal wine and beer selection, keeping bottles of wine priced at $20 or less. -Chad Walsh
