“We have 13 different micro brews on tap,” said Jennifer DuPont, who owns the business with her husband, Jeff. They carry area favorites, including beer from 10 Barrel, Worthy, Silvermoon, Deschutes, and Vertigo breweries.

The station still carries fresh produce, but it has been moved outside under the awning to make room for the giant handcrafted juniper table that used to be at the DuPont’s hunting and fishing lodge.

“A lot of meals and stories have been shared at that table,” Jennifer DuPont said, adding, “It’s our community table; a gathering place for customers.”

Wild Winds steaks, pepperoni, sausages and jerky can also be purchased from a cooler at the back of the station, located at 1125 S.W. Highway 97, next to Abby’s Pizza.

Wild Winds Station is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The business phone number is 541-390-0285.
