Oregon Tavern Age

Oregon Tavern Age


For 20 years, Matt Love has lived on the Oregon Coast and explored its dive bars and taverns. From Astoria to Brookings, he’s seen it all: madness, darkness, comedy, beauty, sharing, traditions, simplicity and a cast of characters worthy of Raymond Carver, Charles Bukowski, John Steinbeck, Bob Seger, Janis Joplin and Courtney Love. He even coined the immortal phrase, Oregon Tavern Age (OTA), meaning a person appearing anywhere from 40 to 70 years old.

In this rollicking and introspective book, Oregon Tavern Age: Sketches of Coastal Drinking Life, Love takes you inside these fiercely independent and unpretentious joints and reports the most memorable moments—poignant and preposterous—of what’s he observed and learned. About life on the Oregon Coast and about himself.

So crack open a cheap beer or pour a double Crown and coke and enjoy these original stories from OTA country.
