After sipping on fine Pinot noirs in the Willamette Valley, sometimes there's nothing better than drinking a good craft beer. Visitors to Newberg and Dundee often are looking for a good stopping point for some lunch before heading out to the tasting rooms again. Ruddick/Wood in downtown Newberg is the perfect spot.

Their website explains it all:

Ruddick/Wood is a casual restaurant and tavern serving locally focused, seasonal, new-American fare alongside craft beer, wine and cocktails in a renovated 1920s garage in downtown Newberg, Oregon. Ruddick/Wood has been built around the idea of country kitchens, roadhouses, saloons and way-points; and reflects our love of local food and drink, as well as our desire to create a place that is part of the community fabric.

The taps are constantly rotating, but they often show a variety of local craft beer. This week showcases a Heater Allen Pils, Everybody's Brewing from Common Ale, Pfriem's Blonde IPA, Unibroue Belgian Tripel, Stone's Arrogant Bastard Strong Ale, Barley Brown' Stout.

Ruddick/Wood includes both a restaurant in the front and a "slightly less refined sibling in the back." Established in the Fall of 2013, Ruddick/Wood is a relative newcomer to wine country, but very much welcome. Lumpy's Tavern is not the only option in wine country!
