Beer or wine? The age old debate is finally being settled.

Posted on Thursday, January 21st, 2016 by »

Testing the question will take place February 3 and March 2 . . . uh, scratch that!

Beer or wine? Wine or beer? Which is the better? Both tout health benefits, both taste good, both are cultural icons in their own right. Both are ancient beverages invented before written language. Both are associated with fun, merriment, friends and food. And, we are, after all, Friends. Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness.

As such, we think we have solved the dilemma. The answer is BOTH. To prove it, we are hosting two celebrations in the next few weeks. Join us February 3 at the Pend Oreille Winery from 4 until 7 for the Annual FSPW Sip and Shop event. Then, just a short four  seven weeks later (we had a date snafu), on March 30, we will be at the Idaho Pour Authority for a fun night of prizes, music and, yes, beer.

In both  cases, as portion of sales is donated to the cause, and, in both cases, you get to hang out with your Friends and enjoy the some of the best Sandpoint has to offer.

And, finally put to rest that age old question. For your own peace of mind, please attend both.
