With a name like the Portland Brew Bus, let’s just say I was intrigued at what lay ahead for my afternoon excursion one day in Portland, Oregon.
Portland is known as the microbrewery capital of the United States, with more microbreweries per capita than anywhere else in the country. I found myself in the city and wanting to go check one of these microbreweries out. Then the Portland Brew Bus was recommended to me and that sounded like a whole lot of fun.
I boarded the bus and we immediately set out on our excursion. The driver was extremely knowledgeable, and in addition to giving some great background information on craft brewing and the city’s microbrewery culture, he provided some nice general Portland knowledge as well.
Stop after stop, I kept finding great tasting beers that I wanted to remember later so I could purchase some. Lucky for me, the Portland Brew Bus provided a beer scorecard so I could keep track. Afterwards, it was very easy to find outlets that sold these fine beers. I also found my way back to one that was my favorite the next night.
If you are a beer drinker and will be finding yourself going through the Portland area at anytime, I highly recommend this fun and unique way to get out and about in the city and sample the high quality beers of several microbreweries.
Give the Portland Brew Bus a shot at entertaining you!
