Pre-CBC Portland Adventures

No doubt about it – Portland is a fantastic city.  So many breweries (58 in the city proper and 83 in the Portland Metro Area per the Oregon Craft Brewer’s Guild), loads of great restaurants and food trucks, and more and more cider, too.  Not to mention all of the nearby wineries for those who prefer their alcohol from grapes instead of hops. 

The weekend before CBC we were able to explore without all 11,000 CBC attendees competing for taxis.  And it seemed that some BA folks had a similar idea, since we kept running into them (see pics).

Within a 5 minute walk we visited Cascade Brewing Company, Buckman Botanical Brewery, the Rogue shop (while we enjoyed sampling a Voodoo Donut, we didin’t get the chance to sample Rogue’s beer version), recently opened Common Brewery and Hair of the Dog Brewing Company.  Lots of folks eating and drinking there.

We also visited Deschutes, Bridgeport and McMenamins pub. So many breweries and brewpubs, so little time….

 

Interestingly, saw a sign in the window saying “Full Sail Research Brewery Coming Soon” next to etched glass saying “Independent Employee Owned Full Sail Brewing Company at River Place,” despite the fact that they sold to Private Equity firm Encore and other investors, ending their ESOP.
