Default Who wants to test the Stouts in Portland?

I had another post up here where a bunch of dudes from Portland Oregon replied. I asked a lot of noob questions, and they didn't make too much fun of me.

I know this is the wrong time of year for it, but maybe sometime in January, who wants to go hit the local joints in Portland to sample stouts? It's a great opportunity for me to learn, and you could tell the wife you're going drinking in the name of 'knowledge'!

If you're interested, toss out some dates in Jan that would work for you. I'll try my hand at starting a poll also. (this should be interesting, I've never done that)

Wednesdays do NOT work for me.

They should replace the coffee at work with a good ol' Oatmeal Stout... At least then I'd be to work on time.

Just adding a note in here to try and get the poll back to the front incase some Portlanders didn't see it and might be interested.

Is your plan to go from location to location trying out the local brews or have everyone pick up a Stout (or 6) of their liking and meet at somewhere?

Either one works for me... I'm totally up for suggestions from anyone. If we go from place to place we need to have one person that's relatively sober for driving.

If we do the grab a sixer, and meet somewhere, we'll have to do some coordinating to make sure no one grabs the same stuff as another.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

That's what I was wondering... I know there are more Portlanders in this forum than this. Portland is the Micro-Brew Capital of the world!

That's fair enough... we'll definitely try to keep you informed. And of course, this doesn't have to be a one time deal. I'm just trying to learn.

If January would work for you, would you rather hit up a few pubs, or everyone snag a sixer and meet somewhere? (trying to get an idea of what the crowd would like)

I know I started this thread, but unfortunately gents, I'm going to have to say that January is a no-go for me.

I got engaged the Sunday before Christmas, and the little lady wants to hit every bridal show there is, and I get the pleasure of going too (UGH).

But she is being fair and saying that Febuary I can go out with the boys and have a few Stouts.

Gary, seeing as you seem to be one of the vets, would you like to set something up for next month? If not, I can gladly start a new thread. I don't know if this one is posted in the correct area of the forum or not, if not let me know where it should be please.

I hope you all had a great Christmas/Holiday and an awesome New Year.
Chuck
