Goodlander Cocktail Brewery is opening inside a former animal shelter at 6614 Hamilton Ave. in Larimer. Owner Wes Shonk plans to whip up and keg batches of carbonated drinks such as Moscow Mules and Mojitos.

Who’s ready for more burgers?

Shake Shack, one of the world’s best-known burger brands, will open its first Oregon restaurant in Beaverton on Friday, April 16, the company announced Wednesday.

Until now, the company had kept silent about its Portland-area expansion plans. But news has trickled out. In December, the company’s proposal to turn a former vitamin store across from Powell’s City of Books was approved by the Portland’s Bureau of Development Services.
