Just like any other region of the US, Oregon has a season for it’s plentiful fruits and vegetables. Summer is the best season for all the fruits we love. In the Oregon alcohol market, fruits grown in our state can be seen in everything from beer to cider to locally make vodka. Worthy Brewing offers an amazing peach infused summer Saison and Two Towns Cider in Corvallis has a delicious seasonal rhubarb cider.

So, what is Twist excited about? Marionberries of course! Their fresh season is from July 10th to August 10th and while they’re certainly delectable in jams and pies…a Marionberry Cocktail is what we look forward to every summer.
