Why Portland? Malted
grains, Old World traditions and NW classic recipes. And because we have the
perfect ingredients-hardy aromatic hops and malted barley right in our own
backyard-Oregon's Willamette & Washington's Yakima Valleys. There aren't
climates in the world that foster barley and hops, Oregon being one of them.
In the 1980s, a change in Oregon's law allowed brewing and retail sales to
co-exist; behold the Oregon brew-pub. Other states are trying to follow our
lead, but they're still well behind us. In the city that churns out more
craft-brewed suds than any other, exceptional beer has become the rule.

6 BEERS SHOUTOUTS:
Boneyard RPM - When
Boneyard launched in Bend, it sent RPM hurtling like an ICBM into the
Portland market. Dinosaur IPAs died, being replaced by a legion of modern
beers bearing the Boneyard influence. Available around town.
Cascade Noyaux - It's
been 10 years since Cascade started making its very strong, very tart
'Northwest Sours'. Using Lactobacillus, aged months or years in barrels and
usually flavored with local fruits, they're unique to the city and the
world. It's hugely laborious and time--consuming and worth a try. We'd also
recommend Apricot Ale or Kriek, but Noyaux best illustrates Cascade's
approach... After shucking the fruit off for other beers, they take the
stone, crack it and remove the meat (the noyaux) which gives this beer its
amaretto-to-maraschino flavor. Only available at Cascade.
Hair of the Dog Adam -
When Adam (Hair of the Dog's 1st beer) debuted in 1993, it showed Portland
what mature brewing looked like. It's a giant beer, dark and smoky and very
very rich. But tread lightly on Adam (10% abv!). Only available at Hair of
Upright 6 - Tucked away
in a basement brewery, Upright has had a huge effect on our beer, directing
the city's palate toward complex, food-friendly ales. Their #6, a dark
rye saison is one of their heavier ales, their most food-friendly and the
Occidental Pilsner -
About 5-10 years ago Pilsners and Lagers (Breakside, Ninkasi, Upright,
pFriem and Ecliptic) became very popular in Portland. One of our faves is
Occidental way out in St John's, which has the richest expression of malt
Great Notion Ripe IPA -
Winner of WWs Feb 2018 blind taste test of damn near every IPA in Portland. It's "a
candied IPA so creamy and fruity it almost shoots off into its own category

TASTING TIPS -- No one needs a
primer on tasting beer, but consider a few tips on how to better appreciate
But how the heck do you get to taste without being overwhelmed? Don't fret, we're here to help. The best way to tackle it is by
the Portland Brew Bus, choosing a few breweries and enjoying a pitcher(s) or sampler tray(s)* at each...then,
slow down. Look at your beer--the quality of its head, the amount of
carbonation you see. Then smell--does it remind you of anything? Now sip.
How does it feel on your palate? Is it spiked with bubbles, or smooth and
creamy? How are the flavors changing? Is there an aftertaste? Do you like
*We highly recommend trying a
sampler tray(s) at any or all breweries. It's a chance to taste a range of
beers, which usually includes a seasonal and some styles you might not have
