Me and the Mrs. are planning a visit to Portland and Seattle, and knew this was the place to get some suggestions about what breweries and brew pubs to visit.

We are going to be there during the Bones & Brews Festival in Portland and plan on checking that out. What are the can't miss spots?

Thanks in advance

Holy Portland hater!!! Portland is great, we have lots o small brew pubs but here are my faves and some quick tips!!

Hopworks -SE- solid beers and awesome hot wings, great happy hour
Tugboat Brewery -SW- heart of downtown, smallest in brewery in the city and right accross from::::
Bailey's Taproom -SW- tons of taps, you can get food from the nearby food carts and bring it inside
Cascadian -SE- sour, sour and more sour beer.
Upright Brewing -N- all open fermentation, super cool atmosphere.
Green Dragon -SE- one of Rogue's 3 (I think) in town, this is the Buckman Brewery and always has some really great booze on tap.

I live in SW so I (unfortunately) stay on my side of the river most of the time. Although I am getting the urge to venture out tonight!!
Hit me up if you need help navigating. This is my favorite place to eat and drink, there are no shortages of good times in OR.

McMenamins are worth visiting. Most of them are converted hotels, schools, churches, etc. If either of you likes raspberry in your beer, the Ruby Wheat is excellent.

Oregon is a fantastic state... great places- beautiful coast- great fly fishing, outstanding beers- (Deschutes, Ninkasa...) but...


Portland is a scum hole, a pit, a pathetic ugly blight on the entire northwest... what beers there might be hidden in that nasty hole are not worth venturing into for because you will have to weed through all the bigots, drug runners, pediphiles (like the mayor), homelessness, blazer and timbers "fans" and other members representive or the scourge of society...

visit Oregon- dig it and enjoy it- just stay away from portscum...

I would add Saraveza and Prost, if you venture NE at all.

Where in Washington are you going to be? North or South, East or West of Seattle? What are looking for as well? Up in my neck of the woods (north of Seattle) There's Scuttlebutts brewpub with a terrific happy hour on the Everett waterfront. Farther north there's Scookum brewery out on a mini Farm where the guy has some good brews and draws a couple hundred people to his barn for Beers. You can find both on the net. Both are a good time in different ways.

I second Mcmennimans too. great burgers and beer in a lot of places in both Wa and Or.

Spending the week in Portland. Looking for stuff to do. Actually spent the last week here as well... Went to Green Dragon, Tugboat, A couple mcmenamins, Deschutes, Cascade (favorite thus far), Full sail, Lucky Labrador, BridgePort. On the list still: Hair of the dog, Breakside, Columbia River, Hopworks, Laurelwood, and Widmer. Any suggestions would be appreciated (they don't even need to be beer related LOL) Thanks.
