Thank you for all yor input. I did go to McMenamins south of Portland, as I took a side trip to Oregon. Good food, interesting beers. I also stopped at Pyramid in downtown Seattle. It is no longer a brewery, as they are replacing the tanks with more dining space, but the beers were great. I really enjoyed their seasonal, port and imperial IPA.
I hope to revisit the town when baseball is back in season and the rain turns to sun. Thanks again, all.
