Deschutes Brewery Base Camp and Ginger Beer Cake in Today's Eater's Digest

Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?

Phoenix Base Camp
This week, our favorite Bend, Oregon beer brewers, Deschutes, brings Beer Fanatic Base Camp to Phoenix. Base Camp is Deschutes' way of saying thanks to everyone who has supported their beers over the years and hopefully, to make a few new friends along to way. Deschutes will be bringing their giant brewery barrel on wheels, Woody, with them to bring joy to various events in Tempe and Phoenix. Base Camp kicks off today with a tasting at Total Wine & More in Tempe from 2-5 p.m., then moves the party to Taste of Tops for a special tasting featuring The Lost Barrels of Mirror Mirror and The Abyss '08. Events continue throughout the week. Click here for the full line up. 

Ginger Beer Bread
It may sound like an odd combo, but this cake is it's actually super delish; if you like ginger. This super moist, Ginger Beer Cake from Pig Pig's Corner is packed full of walnuts and raisins. Don't like the boozy ginger beer? Go ahead and sub the non-alcoholic kind; we won't tell.
