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

Back in 2017 while traveling in Alaska I found a beer that was so good it has haunted my memory of good beer since then. I found it when I first started drinking craft beer and I’ve been looking for it since then but unfortunately the beer is not sold in Texas. It is called

After Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, a brief visit to Olympia and a long drive up winding roads we finally made it to Port Angeles. We had done some research and knew where we wanted to eat but during a pandemic with restaurant limiting seating it is difficult to get a table. Word of
