Another question though--I'm looking for your thoughts on Portland's microbreweries. If a couple were in town for one weekend, where would you recommend we visit? Is BridgePort really the place to go, or are their some local faves you can recommend? Quality is obviously first priority, but selection is up there too. It's less about finding the perfect beer and more about finding interesting and unique brews. My man loves trying new beer (I'm actually surprised he hasn't yet taken a trip to Ptown solely for the microbreweries), but I'm more of a wine girl myself, and therefore pretty ignorant to what's widely popular and what's lesser-known. With the help of Google it's been easy enough to find the popular places, but I'm thinking there has to be something a little more obscure out there pumping out great beer. So I want in on these secrets, DP--what're your suggestions?
Thanks in advance (and sorry for sounding like such a fucking tourist).
