Portland: Deschutes Brewery

When traveling I love to drink local. This time I will admit that we were engrossed in catching up with family and I didn’t take my usual notes. Despite that the food and the beer were both fantastic and we all cleaned our plates. Deschutes Brewery does get busy. We arrived just before the lunch
