Spirits, Brews and Vino

Beer - Portland is home to more breweries than any other city on earth. Beer lovers, look no further — in Portland, you’ll find 53 breweries, scads of annual beer fests, brew ‘n’ view movie theaters, beer pairings at fine restaurants and tap lists galore.

Oregon Brewers Festival - Pouring more than 80 different craft beers from around the country, the Oregon Brewers Festival is the quintessential celebration of craft beer! On a sun soaked July afternoon, there's no better place to sip suds with friends along the banks of the Willamette River, with the Portland skyline as a backdrop to the west and Mt. Hood towering in the east.

Urban Wineries - Driven by winemakers motivated to move their operations closer to where they live and socialize, Portland has nearly a dozen urban wineries.

Craft Spirits - Small-batch distilleries and creative bartenders make truly local (and delicious) cocktails a reality.

McMenamins - Featuring fresh, seasonal Northwest pub fare and their own handcrafted ales, wines & spirits. They have 24 breweries in Oregon and Washington brewing nearly 49,000 kegs last year! McMenamins 9 historic hotels range from an old poor farm to a renovated Catholic School and offer eclectic places to eat, drink and sleep. Depending on which property you choose, you may find an onsite brewery, a movie theater, a full-service spa, gardens and orchards, a winery, soaking pools, live music and more. McMenamins artwork -- and the philosophy behind it -- is continually being re-envisioned, renewed and refreshed.
