The Red Rooster Grocery hosts a representative from Port Townsend's Alpenfire Cidery from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9, for a free tasting of Alpenfire's entire line of new local, handcrafted artisan vinegars.
Here is a list of the line of vinegars:

An apple cider vinegar with a robust horseradish flavor.
• Spring Tonic
An apple cider vinegar with dried nettles and dandelion.
A red wine vinegar made from local winemaker Richard Sorensen of Sorensen Cellars' Cabernet Sauvignon steeped with bay leaves, rainbow peppercorns and cacao nibs.
• English Ale
A malt vinegar made from Port Townsend Brewery's Scotch Ale and Boatyard Bitter, great for fish and chips.
