Tell me about Portland

So I got offered a move to Tualatin (south Portland OR) by my job. I know the beer scene is great and it's full of hippies, but can some people familiar with the area tell me about it?

I'm not really trying to make a maple flavored beer, it's more of an experiment just to see what happens.

As far as style, I've considered brown ale, Vienna lager, pilsner, or maybe a porter.
