Thanksgiving Week: The Oregon beer scene

As a beer geek, I am extremely thankful that Oregon is one of the best places to be in terms of beer culture—and that I live in the heart of it.

Oregon has world-class breweries, cutting-edge breweries, young upstarts, and the old guard. From the brewery-rich Portland to the far-flung reaches like Baker City and Enterprise, beer permeates Oregon and the beer culture here is both easy-going and sophisticated; Oregonians like their beer and know their beer.

There are other great beer locales around, but Oregon is at the top of my list. And I’m glad I’m here.
