“I’d heard about the breweries in Portland, but I had no idea they were in dozens of older historic buildings. I found this fascinating. I like my beer as well as the next man, but after visiting Portland, I’ll never order another Budwesier or Miller again in my life! Life is too short to drink bad beer.”
--- Sanford P., Boise
“Being from New York where people are blunt to the point of rudeness, I was bowled over by the hospitality of the people everywhere we went and the warm welcome we received.”
--- Minnie C., Staten Island
“I’ll say this: go through the restaurant list with a fine tooth comb if you’re on a short visit the way we were. There are SO many good choices.”
---Juan T., Miami
