Could it be that Foster Road is able to absorb yet another alcohol-related establishment? Someone thinks so, and I’m not so sure he’d be wrong. What appears to be plans for a bottleshop and tasting room, an OLCC application confirms that a permit for off-premises and limited on-premises sales is being sought for the former Guapo Comics and Coffee Space (you’re still missed, Guapo).
If this is all true, we’re not talking about another bar. Rather, you may now have easier access to those craft brews that are hard to find at Fred Meyer, and can haul them off for consumption later. More plans may be in the works, and it’s unknown whether this establishment will serve beer on site. If they do, however, I believe Oregon state law would require food to be served as well.
Hopefully we’ll learn more soon. Let’s just hope it’s not another convenience mart.
