52 and counting breweries in Portland, Oregon, so plenty of choices. My favorites are: Cascade Barrel House for about a dozen sours on tap. Hopworks Urban Brewery/HUB for a good selection with generally a few Belgian style beers available and good food with a good "Portland" experience/vibe. Hair of the Dog for amazing limited production beers and really good food. Breakside for a wide selection of beers with a lot having interesting/culinary ingredients and good pub food. Plus, Laurelwood for a solid selection of mostly NW style beers and a pretty varied menu.
For taphouses, Belmont Station is amazing and has a huge selection of bottles, Horse Brass has more than 50 taps with a great selection of beers and English pub surroundings (also, arguably, a large part of turning Portland into Beervana), then there's Bailey's Taproom, Saraveza, and Apex.
If you have a chance get bottles from Upright and The Commons at a store in Portland.
Double Mountain- solid mix of NW and German/Belgian style beers, Pfriem for excellent Belgian style beers in Hood River.
Ft. George in Astoria for a neat place to visit on the coast and especially good stouts.
Crux, Boneyard, and 10 Barrel in Bend if you stop there.

Since your going to be driving down 26 to the Coast if you like Baseball you should stop by the Stadium in Hillsboro and watch a game..its just a Single A minors team but the stadium is awesome, theres not really a bad seat in the place, they have good Bridgeport beer and its not all that expensive and they play every day from now until like the end of August...like 3-4 days here, 3-4 days on the road.

Honestly im not a fan of baseball in general, its a boring sport to watch on TV to me but its damn fun with a beer and hotdog when your 15 feet from the first base line with $15 seats.

I'm a fan of Payette in Boise.
There are two places in Eastern Oregon that I recommend: Terminal Gravity in Enterprise and Barley Brown's in Baker City. Never actually been to either but I've had plenty from both and never had a bad beer.
In Bend, +1 to Boneyard and Crux. RPM from Boneyard is my favorite IPA, period. I think Worthy is doing is doing some decent stuff, too.
I think Pelican is a bit overrated (and overpriced). When we go to the coast, we usually just take a load of growlers and hit up The Growler Guys (Bend, Eugene and now in Portland, I think, too). They always have good, affordable stuff.
Happy travels.

Hey thanks all. Lots of great ideas.

I got my mojo working and I'm taking it on a road trip.

I wasnt going to read through the whole thread so if I'm posting the same as someone else, please forgive me...

Bend OR - Almost on your way home - Stops MUST include Deschutes Brewery and Ten Barrel

Eugene OR - Ninkasi Brewing

Hood River OR - Full Sail Brewing

Then a trip across the river to a TON of Washington wineries in the Columbia Valley!

I hate to say anything negative, but Full Sail is my least favorite of the breweries in Hood River. It has a nice view at least.
