My 2 cents:
Hate to say it, but McMennamin's, Tugboat, and Broadway Brewery are about the worst in town.
Try to hit Breakside, Hair of the Dog, Hopworks, and Laurelwood for sure. Columbia River isn't bad, but Lucky Lab, Bridgeport, Full Sail are decent but aren't worth it in a town with so many great places. Hopworks is a great Portland vibe with good food and organic beers, Breakside makes a huge variety of brews that are good, and has great food, Laurelwood is well rounded in both beers and food.
Enjoy the rest of your visit.

I agree those 3 have been the worst 3 so far... But Full Sail isn't far behind them.... At least none of the beers I had at that rented space in the restaurant by the water...

In Portland you must stop by Tim's Great Cigars and then the Screen Door for GREAT fried chicken. Terminal Gravity is always on tap. Try to talk Tim into going with you; I promise a memorable evening!
Tell him Pat sent you.

So much unnecessary hate on this thread. I lived in Portland for 4 years and now I live in Seattle. Both are great places. A couple places that have not been mentioned in Portland are:

Upbright Brewing - very small, weird hours but really great beer. You basically sit right next to the vasts where they brew.

+1 for Bridgeport. Rogue is great too but the food can be hit or miss. Dechutes and Hopworks are great. Mcmenimins is cool but the beer is average.

Pine State Biscuits is probably my favorite breakfast place in the world.

I like Elysian brewing in Seattle. The Red Hook brewery tour in Woodinville is outstanding and you get lots of beer for a buck. Also check Mac and Jacks and or Georgetown brewing, who makes Manny.

"Pine State Biscuits is probably my favorite breakfast place in the world."

Amen to that. Get the "Full Reggy". Don't question me, just do it!

Since John Harris took off from the Harborside Full Sail location they can't do anything but go downhill.
+1 Upright makes great beers, they're just hard to find/park at, have tough hours to make, and are available in bottle around town.
Another to check out is Gigantic, in SE, they're a new production brewery with a tasting room. Doable if you go to Hair of the Dog, and they're located near HOD's old location.

Went to Hair of the Dog and Gigantic today. Both were really nice.

My girlfriend is there right now and asking me what bottles she should bring home for me. Do any of these aforementioned microbreweries bottle? And if so, are there 2-3 beers she absolutely needs to get for me?
