Honey Tasting Fundraiser for Wildfire Relief; broVo Spirits Makes First Vermouth with WA Wine

Today's dose of vital food news.

NORTHGATE -- Honey Fiend is hosting a honey tasting on Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Northgate Community Center. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit "the Community Foundation of North Central Washington to be dedicated to the Fire Relief Fund, which will provide long-term assistance to those recently impacted by some of the largest wildfires in state history," according to the Facebook event page. On hand will be 106 honeys from 19 countries. More info is available on the Honey Fiend website. [EaterWire]

WOODINVILLE -- The first ever American vermouths made with Washington wines are now available from broVo Spirits. They've reinvented the wheel a bit, using Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Merlot, and Rosé wines where most distilleries would use white wine. broVo vermouths also have a higher alcohol by volume (19.9% ABV) to help the flavors last longer after the bottle has been opened. All four broVo vermouths are on sale now. [EaterWire]

YAKIMA -- A bit farther afield, Tieton Cider Works is cutting the ribbon on a new location in downtown Yakima. The move away from the cidery's hometown of Tieton means more space for a cider bar with six taps of their core and seasonal ciders. They're celebrating with grand opening (with tours, tastings, and giveaways) on November 1 from noon to 5 p.m. [EaterWire]
