Re: The Beer Thread
I come from the land of micro breweries. A mainstay in Portland is Widmer, who is notorious for their Hefeweizen and their Drifter (a pale ale).
Gosh, there are so many good ones. Amnesia, Bridgeport, Hopworks, MacTarnahans, Deschutes, Full Sail, etc.
We also have several breweries that open restaurants/pubs around them, like The Ram and McMenamins.
