Here in Oregon, we love our beer, and while many Oregonians are smart enough to avoid drinking and driving, there are times when the usual public transit options for safe imbibing create more of a headache than too many pints of an Imperial IPA on a hot day. Sometimes, in order to fully appreciate the beauty of our vast brewery choices, you have to get out and experience beer on a whole new level.
Looking for alternatives to the tried and true light rail, bus, trolley, or tour bus? These local options have the zest and zip to give you a pep in your step (or a push in your pedal). Create your own pub and brewery crawl, enjoy the fruits of your uphill labors with a pint after a breathtaking hike, cruise your way to victory (malts) on a wheeled adventure, or appreciate the local architecture and history with attentive walking tour guides.
Brewvana’s primary walking tour guide, Margot Ripley shared what she loves most about the new walking tours, and some fresh ideas for upcoming adventures with Brewvana!
The current walking tour is based in NW Portland, explains Ripley, “which has enormous historical importance not only for Oregon beer but for the city of Portland as well. There are many iconic breweries in the area, as well as many smaller locations trying new and exciting things. We include information about the Lovejoy Columns, the Benson Bubblers, the Park Blocks, and many other Portland icons. More than landmarks, we focus on the creation of the city itself, and the people who were important in that creation, like John Couch, Henry Weinhard, and Francis Pettygrove.”
While the tour is tailored toward anyone who may not have much knowledge about, or understanding of the history of Portland, it is still very applicable for people who have lived in the area for years. Says Ripley, “The beer aspect is very similar to the experience we provide on our other tours-- enjoy a wide selection where every palate will find something to love” including Deschutes Brewing, Pints Urban Taproom, and Rogue Public House. “This is a really excellent tour for folks hoping to introduce friends and family to Portland and gain an appreciation for Oregon beer.”
Ripley continues, “We're considering a "Walk the Dog" tour in South East Portland, where folks would be invited to bring their friendly four-legged friends along to some other wonderful breweries across the river as we learn about some other important things in the history of our city. A tour featuring man's two best friends-- beer and dogs! What could be better?”
The walking tours are designed to offer visitors and locals alike the chance to stretch their legs while enjoying great craft beer and learning more about the Pearl District of Portland. Starting at Deschutes Brewery Portland Public House with a full six-sampler tray offering a combination of classic and seasonal beers and Tasting 101, the tour then proceeds to Pints Brewing. There the tour will get a behind the scenes look at 3.5 barrel brewing system accompanied by a sampling of their beers. The last stop of the tour is Rogue Distillery & Public house for appetizers, more beer and trivia, with the winner taking home a BREWVANA trucker hat.
Tickets are $49/person and include behind the scenes tours, all beer and food, pretzel necklace, tasting journal, Pilsner glass and historical notes about the Pearl District. Space is limited and reservations must be made in advance. Tours will run 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. To register visit www.experiencebrewvana.com/tours.

Is it ever a bad time to visit Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge breweries? If there is, I haven’t found it. The incredible Multnomah, Latourell, Horsetail and White River falls are as fantastic to hike in February as they are in October. The wind blows down the gorge almost 365 days a year making all of the wind sports a year-round adventure to both watch or join. The fishing’s always good and the food and wine are world-class.
But enough of this beautiful stuff. After a hard day of taking in the sites-sights, all you need to know is that some of that beautiful water goes into good beer.
Perhaps the hoppiest time this year is Sept. 28, when fresh-hopped beer from more than two dozen breweries will be on tap at the Hood River Hops Fest.
This event from noon to 9 p.m. takes up the downtown blocks between 5th and 7th streets at Cascade and Columbia streets. Thousands attend this hop-lover’s party which also features local foods, arts and crafts and line-up of live music.
Buy tickets in advance at http://hoodriver.org/events-festivals/chamber-events/hops-fest.
For those of us who’d rather visit the breweries any time of the year, here are my favorite spots on the Oregon side of the Gorge (with a footnote that there are also several on the Washington side, just a bridge away).
8 Fourth St, Hood River
If you haven’t been to Double Mountain in the past two years, you haven’t been to Double Mountain. It has expanded its taproom and food service area, added brewery capacity, a bottling line, etcetera. My favorites (and I am not alone) are any of the “Lava” beers, and I especially love their wet/fresh hop series, usually released in late September and not prone to gathering dust on the shelves. This is a great place to eat a meal at lunch or dinner, but many nights in the summer, there’s live music from Northwest acts, from Terry Robb to Ark Life. Check out the website for a full rundown of events and seasonal beers. This brewery always has dozens of brews to try – from light Belgians to black Dublin-style stouts. 541-387-0042
Full Sail Brewery
506 Columbia St., Hood River
This is the mother of all Gorge breweries, established by Irene Firmat and brewmaster Jamie Emmerson in 1987, and turned over to its employees in 1999. Although this hugely successful brewery is now found in more than 30 states from coast to coast, there’s nothing like having a beer at the Hood River Full Sail pub and tasting room while watching the kiteboarders and sailboarders skim across the Columbia River below. I am always thirsty for Full Sail’s award-winning Session Ale, but if you’re at the brewery, you should try any or all of the experimental, seasonal or Brewer’s Share series, some of which are only available on tap in Hood River or at their Portland Riverplace pub. I’ve tasted all of the Brewer’s Share series and been impressed by the innovation from the wider brewing staff and by the kindness connected to these beers that benefit community organizations. 541-386-2247
Pfriem Family Brewers
707 Portway Ave., Suite 101, Hood River
Pfriem Family Brewers (the ‘P’ is silent) splashed onto the Hood River scene last year with an emphasis on Northwest and Belgian-style beers, a brave move by brewer Josh Pfriem, backed by his family and friends. Josh Priefm is a former brewer for Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen in Bellingham, Wash., and for Full Sail, but his determination to open a brewery has made us all very happy. Pfriem’s tasting room has long family-style tables set right in the and it is just across the road from a popular boarding (sail and kite) launch park on the Columbia River, so you are likely to share space with wet and happy boarders. Pfriem’s beers are constantly rotating, but they include at least one wit, a Belgian Strong Ale, a Belgian Strong Blonde, a blonde IPA, a regular IPA and a number of others depending on the mood of the brewer. I’ve never had a bad beer here, so I suggest you start with a taster tray, and if you are unfamiliar with Belgian-style beers, ask questions. 541-321-0490
Big Horse Brew Pub
115 W. State St., Hood River
Big Horse Brew Pub is another must-see brew stop in Hood River – if not for the beer then certainly for the food and the view. The climb to the hillside, top-story restaurant, past a faux falls and garden, is enough of a test of your worthiness to sit and enjoy the scenery on the second-floor deck, or from the wide windows on the top floor. The small brewery takes up the bottom level. For lunch or dinner, try pairing everything from justice fries to beef tender au poive with a variety of brews you’ll not find anywhere else. My favorites were the Pale Rider IPA, good anytime, and the MacStallion Scotch Export is especially good with the decadent sea salt/bacon chocolate chip cookie. 541-386-4411
Logsdon Farmhouse Ales
4785 Booth Hill Road, Hood River
Solera Brewery and Logsdon Farmhouse Ales have very little in common outside of this: You won’t be sorry you visited these two picturesque breweries located a few miles south of Hood River via Highway 35 – the road to Mt. Hood. Logsdon’s brewing team applies its expertise to making organic ales in the Flemish/Belgian style in a real picture-pretty red farmhouse. Some of its ingredients are grown right on the farm’s 10 acres. Last year, this two-year-old brewery won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival for its Seizoen Bretta. I’m not surprised – it was one of the more expensive beers I ever purchased with my own hard-earned dollars, and worth every penny. The other purchase was the other Seizoen, also delicious. David Logsdon kindly gave me a bottle of the Kili Wit, which was also delicious, prompting me to purchase the Seizoens. I suggest you visit the farmhouse and see how much you’d be willing to spend on beer. You may raise the bar for this brewery. 541-490-9161
4945 Baseline Dr., Parkdale
Just up the road from the rather reclusive Logsdon is the somewhat more social Solera Brewery, in beautiful downtown Parkdale. It’s street-side and patio concerts draw tourists and townfolk alike to sing and dance away summer nights. What’s more, this place has the best view of Mt. Hood a beer drinker could ask for without being actually on the mountain. During the few times I’ve returned from skiing via Highway 35, I’d always admired the historic-looking building that is now filled with a brewery that has something for everyone: IPAs, a smoked porter, farmhouse blends and a saison or two, and a few unusual beers like the French Tickler, a Grisette-style ale. They also serve beers from other breweries including Logsdon, Laurelwood, The Commons, Upright and Fort George. 541-352-5500

Like mushrooms after rain, a Brewing District has sprung up in Eugene's Whitaker Neighborhood. With four area craft breweries now pouring in "the Whit", plus options for food and beverage everywhere you look, it's time to take a walking tour of the Eugene Brewing District.
Ninkasi Tasting Room
272 Van Buren St., Eugene
We're starting our pub crawl at Ninkasi for two reasons: Oregon's 4th-largest brewery is the first of the four breweries to locate here. Plus, if you're driving or biking, Ninkasi is the best place to find street parking in the area.
If you've come with an appetite, you'll usually find a food cart outside the Tasting Room entrance (but fear not, you'll have plenty of chances to eat your fill). Head inside for the swank interior and a pint of Radiant Northwest Pale Ale, Ninkasi's summer seasonal release. You'll also find outdoor seating (rain or shine), old favorites like Total Domination IPA and other special releases—some of which you won't find anywhere else.
Need a sweet treat after leaving Ninkasi? Snag a frozen yogurt from the Vanilla Jill's location on Blair, right behind Ninkasi, for the next stage of our journey.
Hop Valley Tasting Room & Brewery
990 W. 1st Ave., Eugene
From Ninkasi, turn left, walk to 1st Avenue and turn right. This won't be the prettiest part of the tour, but press on. The coffee-brown exterior wood and bright, fresh-hop green tones of Hop Valley's new Tasting Room and Production Brewery make it all worthwhile.
The off-street raised deck seems to take you to a different world, with plenty of seating for solo sipping or group gatherings. Inside, enjoy your pint of Double-D Blonde Ale or 541 American Lager at the bar. Or, go next door to the separate dining room, where a large glass window gives you a pint's-eye-view to the massive steel tanks of Hop Valley's brewing operation. While there, reward your walk with a varied food menu based off favorites from Hop Valley's original Springfield brewpub.
Oakshire Public House
207 Madison St., Eugene
Tongue relishing all those hoppy finishes, we continue our tour—with one quick diversion.
From Hop Valley, turn right onto 1st Avenue. Have your pints and sample trays inspired you to make your own beer? At 1st and Monroe, head to the yellow building that is the home of Home Fermenter Center. For over 25 years, Jim Stockton has provided advice, ingredients and gear for homebrewers at all levels. He stocks supplies for making beer, wine, cheese, soda and other fermented foods and beverages.
New brewing kit in hand, turn right down 1st Avenue and go one more block. Turn right at Madison. On the left you'll soon see the bright windows and warm woodwork of the Oakshire Public House, which opened in May. You'll find your favorite Oakshire beers on tap, such as Overcast Espresso Stout and Watershed IPA, as well as seasonal releases and single-batch beers. Food carts also set up outside the pub.
Falling Sky Delicatessen
790 Blair Blvd., Eugene
After turning left from Oakshire and crossing the railroad tracks, you'll turn right onto W. 4th Avenue. Let your full belly digest while walking this quiet, tree-lined residential street. But don't be lulled into a false sense of security, for our tour now brings you to the temptation of distraction.
Soon you will arrive at Blair Boulevard, the epicenter of the Whit. The options will dazzle you, and the aromas will entice you: the music and grub at Sam Bond's Garage. The timeless Tiny's Tavern. The tangy sweet barbecue aromas wafting from Papa's Soul Food.
You will be tempted to stay here, but you will persevere. For once you turn left onto Blair, you are only a couple of blocks away from the true prize: house-cured hot pastrami on fresh-baked rye with a cold pint of Falling Sky Bare Hands Northwest Bitter.
Open as of mid-July and self-described as what happens when an East Coast delicatessen meets a Northwest brewpub, the Falling Sky Delicatessen is the newest member of the Eugene Brewing District. Falling Sky Deli pours beers from their Oak Alley Brewpub, while also making house-baked bagels and breads, plus house-cured pastrami, corned beef and smoked chicken. Settle in at the covered beer garden, or make new friends at the 90-ft. indoor communal table.
The Rest of the Whit
Are your thirst—and your wanderlust—still pulling at you? Back on the streets of the Whit, discover more treasures from this ever-funky Eugene neighborhood. Options abound: dessert at Sweet Life, iconoclastic sushi at Mame, a neat single-malt at Izakaya Meiji, the incomparable chef's special at Pizza Research Institute. Or maybe you'll return to your favorite brewery location for another pint.
Whatever you decide, you've now walked the Eugene Brewing District—and you know all the better where you'll start next time.
Beyond the Whit
Not in the Whit? Fear not. Here are 7 more places to have a good beer and a good meal in the Eugene/Springfield area.
The Bier Stein The Eugene favorite recently moved to a larger location, expanding their seating and taps in the process. 1591 Willamette St., Eugene. (541) 485-BIER.
The Cannery Located in The Bier Stein's former home, this new gastropub highlights local food. Twenty taps pour beers from Oregon and the West. 345 E 11th Ave., Eugene. (541) 345-5435.
Sizzle Pie The funky Portland pizzeria recently brought their mix of veggie, omnivore, classic and imaginative pizzas to a new location in the heart of Eugene. 910 Willamette St., Eugene. (541) 683-7437.
The Barn Light By day, this humble cafe serves an amazing cup of coffee. By night, people pile in for beer, wine, cocktails and events. 924 Willamette St., Eugene. (458) 205-8914.
Plank Town Brewing Seeking to be a new public meeting spot for a revitalized downtown Springfield, this brewpub is the brainchild of Bart Caridio, of Sam Bond's Garage and Axe & Fiddle fame. 346 Main St., Springfield. (541) 746-1890.
The Cooler Co-owned by Hop Valley founder Jonas Kungys, The Cooler is close to Autzen Stadium. Check out their Prime Rib Fridays. 20 Centennial Loop Eugene, OR 97401. (541) 484-4355.
Hot Mama's Wings Wings and beer... need we say more? Voted Eugene Weekly's 2nd Best New Restaurant 2011-2012, Hot Mama's features 6 rotating beers, deep-fried desserts and 14 different wing sauces. 420 W 13th Ave., Eugene. (541) 653-9999.
By Sean Sullivan
As Oregon's craft beer craze continues to spread, so do the options for road trips. Winding highways with views of the Pacific Ocean lead to the towns of Gold Beach and Brookings, which are home to three new breweries. But the seed of this new craft beer community began in a modest, roadside tap room.
“When we moved here eleven years ago it was a beer desert,” says Chetco Brewing's owner Michael Fredrick. “What really started it was Vista Pub and Raymond."
1009 Chetco Ave., Brookings
In downtown Brookings Raymond Ross and his father Bill serve big, messy burgers in the tradition of the families original Island Vista restaurant, but also offer a large variety of microbrews on tap which has included local breweries Chetco and Arch Rock. Prior to Vista Pub opening their doors two and half years ago craft beer had little or no foothold on Oregon's Southern coast.
“I feel like I was the first out of the gate,” Raymond says, “and showed it would work.”A small stage hosts local musicians, art decorates the walls, Vista Pub has the vibe of a big city speak easy blended with the warm friendliness of a coastal town. No one seems to be in a hurry here, smiles come naturally and the food arrives in large portions.
Raymond adds that a real craft beer community has developed in this region. As an example he tells of Arch Rock's master brewer lending out equipment to help another start up brewery.
Arch Rock Brewing
28779 Hunter Creek Loop, Gold Beach
Located in Gold Beach, Oregon, about 30 miles North of Brookings, Arch Rock earned a gold medal this year from the North American Brewer's Association for their State of Jefferson Porter. The brewery doubles as a tasting room, where locals and tourists can sample the beers, fill their growlers or pick up “Arch Rock” merchandise.
Head Brewer James Smith and his wife Kristin both left Grand Teton Brewing in Idaho to team up with owners Larry Brennan and his wife Marjie. James has also worked at Uinta Brewing in Utah and his experience shows up in the flavors of the beers he brews on the 15 barrel system.
The Gold Beach Lager delivers a light, crisp taste that makes it perfect for hot summer days, while their Pistol Rive Pale Ale brings all the hop flavors that have defined Pacific Northwest IPAs with only a fraction of that style's bitterness. Yet it manages to present as a dry beer with very little malt sweetness.
Look for Arch Rock beers on tap in pubs from Brookings to Florence and coming soon to the Rogue Valley.
Tight Line Brewing
625 Chetco Ave. Ste 120, Brookings
Dave Faires and his son-in-law Nathan Heath have the only brewery located within Brooking's city limits. Their beer will be on tap again soon at the Black Trumpet Bistro, which is located directly above the brewery. Their initial batches sold out quickly, which has left both men optimistic.
“People come to Oregon just to tour breweries,” Nathan says. “And if they come up the coast we'll be the first one they hit.”
Although Dave has been brewing beer since the 80s, his venture with his son-in-law began in 2009 in his daughter's kitchen, but quickly was relocated to the garage when she kicked them out.
Their signature beers will be the RIP Pale Ale and the Dog Hair Porter. The latter is a smooth, dark beer with roasted malt flavor upfront that transitions to toasted caramal tones with very little bitterness in the aftertaste. Very drinkable!
Two and half miles up North Bank road, looking out over the river, Chetco Brewing officially started on April, 19t of this year and already has beer on tap at Vista Pub, Ray's growler fill station, Port of Brooking's Harbor, The Black Trumpet and the Farmer's Market.
Eight years ago Michael's wife Alex bought him a homebrewing kit. The hobby became such a passion that he now grows eleven variations of hops.
“They're beautiful plants,” he says.
Michael says they try to be community friendly and environment friendly.
“We're a mom and pop thing,” he says. “We grow our own raspberries. We're running on a borrowed system.”
He says on a brewing day he will brew two 40 gallon batches using the equipment lent to him by James from Arch Rock. Michael adds that he is building a refrigerated trailer because he sees wider distribution is the brewery;s future, including a partnership with friends in Portland.

Here’s my favorite fantasy: I lift up the corner of the desk, watch these papers and cards and electronic gadgets crash to floor, slip out the back door before anyone notices, jump on the highway west until it ends, and throw myself on the first beach I find. After an hour of running through waves and chasing seagulls, I work up a thirst for an Oregon brew. What’s close?
Depending on where I land on the coast, I’ll probably be at one of these breweries between Astoria and Newport:
Rogue’s Public House
100 39th Street, Astoria
There’s no brewery at this Rogue, but it is a super cool place to hang out on a sunny, stormy or any afternoon, and by hang out, I mean you are literally hanging out over the lower Columbia River, close enough to hear the ships go by.
Fort George Brewery
1483 Duane Street, Astoria
You hunt for their eclectic brews wherever you go, so why not stop in at heaven’s headquarters, located between the historic downtown and the waterfront. There you’ll discover that Fort George makes more than just a delicious Vortex IPA: Stouts, lagers, wits, doppelbocks, pumpkin and coffee and spruce flavors, and Belgian beers all await your tongue. This summer Fort George opened a top floor restaurant with a killer view of the waterfront and a full line-up of wood-fired pizzas. Don’t like wide, open spaces? Try the tiny fireside pub next to the brewery.
Seaside Brewing Company
851 Broadway St., Seaside
This year-old brewery right on Highway 101’s thoroughfare through town is expanding to a 15-barrel system. But even before the expansion, this brewery was the wave to catch: fresh seafood snacks, lunches and dinners paired with their own and other local brews boosted its popularity. Now that the new brewing system is installed, who knows how far they’ll go? Stop by and check it out, if only to see how nicely they’ve fixed up this historic building.
Pelican Pub & Brewery
33180 Cape Kiwanda Dr., Pacific City
There’s a lot to say about this place, but we thought the picture on the cover was worth a million words. In this tiny coastal town, you can eat, sleep to the sounds of waves, shop up a storm, and drink great beer. How could it get better? Pelican is expanding to Tillamook, that’s how! Read more about that, this issue.
McMenamins Lighthouse Brewpub
4157 N.W. Highway 101, Otis
There are several coastal McMenamins on the map, including the new Gearhart Hotel, where you can stay the night, but Lincoln City’s Lighthouse is its only coastal brewery, established in 1986, one of the first in the company. If you read this in time to make the Aug. 17 Lighthouse Brewfest, you may be able to view the Mighty Beer Atom as it emerges from the creative mind of a McMenamins employee.
Rusty Truck Brewery
4649 SW Highway 101, Lincoln City
The brewery is actually behind the sprawling event bar, Roadhouse 101, where you enjoy a quiet lunch with your great beer by day, and by night, rock your pints off every weekend to likes of (this month) Sonny Hess, Renee Hill, Tommy Tutone, Janiva Magness, Phamous Phaces, and more. All that, about 10 Rusty Truck brews on tap, crazy beach and roadhouse decor and a surf, turf, barbecue and pizza menu that doesn’t quit. How do they do it?
Rogue Brewery & Pub, Newport
There are two great places to have a Rogue beer in Newport: At Brewer’s on the Bay, 2320 OSU Drive, you can tour the brewery and then have a pint while watching the fishing boats come in. The original Rogue Public House, 748 SW Bay Blvd., is across from the brewery on the northern bayfront. There, the famous bathtub picture of Mo Nieme, the late-great founder of Mo’s Restaurants, hangs in a place of honor near the bar. Although I’ve spent an hour or two at the original Public House, my favorite seat is at the brewery bar. Go through the giant tank at the front door, past the brewery, through the gift shop and up the stairs. Turn left and sit in the tall chairs in front of the windows, watch the boats bob in the basin, and dream of being a pirate. Because Rogue makes so many good beers, and they are all available at the brewery, get a taster tray before committing.
