With spirited Oregonians flying their cartop flags in a universal reminder of the kickoff of tailgating season, we challenged ourselves to put together a little parking lot party of our own, but using only Oregon products. Local beer? No problem. We were surprised to find how many other essentials there were for the keeping-it-local tailgater.
