Have her go to a good bottle shop, like Saraveza, Belmont Station, or Beermongers. That way she can do one-stop shopping and come back with a variety. I'd also recommend she hit Distillery Row for some of Portland's best craft liquors. House Spirits makes some excellent stuff. I love their Aquavit and their gin.

It is tough to narrow down to 2-3, but some unique beers that would represent Portland well would include Upright #4, Hopworks' Ace of Spades, Laurelwood Free Range Red, and Cascade's Kriek. There are many more than that, but those come to mind.

Ok, so she hauled in Upright #4, Laurelwood Free Range Red, Elysian Promethius IPA (I'm aware this is from WA but she was up there too), and a Logsdon Seizoen. All 22oz or 750ml bottles so I was pretty impressed. I was just expecting a couple of 12 oz assuming she didn't want to deal with hauling beer bottles through the airport. Can't wait to give them a try. Thanks for the advice pdxal, oh and Broham I think she got them all at Belmont Station per your advice and she also bought a bottle of New Deal Gin #1 from Distillery Row. My opinion of that is that it smells like olives (martini) and finishes with strong juniper. Thanks again for the advice.

Glad to help. Those were excellent choices. Enjoy.

Oh, and she sounds like a keeper!

Cheers

Crap, forgot about the Logsdon. The brewery is owned by the founder of Wyeast. Good Saison. Belmont Station is my local, so good choice for bottle shopping.
Cheers.
