Let your guide take you to the side of the river where the hotbed of innovation has always been, across from downtown Portland in a neighborhood packed with breweries young and old. You'll head toward the river from the inner Eastside shop into an industrial neighborhood rich with food and art, exploring the past and the present of Portland's craft brewing culture.Portland was a leader in the craft beer industry and boasts more breweries than any city; whatever beer you love (sour? Craft barrel-aging? Belgian? Wit? Imperial IPA? Fresh hops, dry hops, no hops?), there's certainly a brewery that made its name in that style. All of these thrive in this neighborhood.The tour in total is 2-3 miles (4-5 km) of walking, with just enough beer tasting so you'll know which stop you'd like to return to. The group tour is very small (maximum of 12 participants), so you'll enjoy an intimate experience with your passionate guides!
