Barista in Portland to Start Selling Booze

Posted on April 14, 2010 by

Intelligentsia Pasadena isn’t the only one about to get into the booze business. According to their Twitter stream, Billy Wilson’s Barista has also applied for a liquor license at their second location in Portland OR. Although Intelly and Barista aren’t the first to combine the two passions, this may be an early sign of a growing trend. If combining passions is the next step in the evolution of the modern cafe, how long will it be before someone retails Vans alongside their brews?
