Just back from a great trip!
« on: March 29, 2010, 01:24:16 AM »
Just got back home to Chicago this evening from a 7 day trip to the great Northwest. Had some amazing beers out there and shipped home a massive box of deliciousness. All in all I hit the following breweries in the Seattle, Hood River, Portland area:

Elysian
Pyramid
Pike
Full Sail
Double Mountain
McMeneman's Edgefield
Deschutes
Horse Brass (technically not a brewery but legendary all the same)
Upright
Hopworks

...and the following beer stores in Portland:

Belmont Station (plus the great little biercafe attached)
John's Market

...PLUS, I was lucky enough to score tix to the Washington State Cask Ale Festival in Seattle last night.


I feel like I could have been out there twice as long and still barely scratched the surface. Cheers to NW beer!

These beer people from Chicago that I haven't met are coming out of the woodwork...

Glad you had a great trip.  Seattle/Portland are towards the top of my list of places I want to visit next.
