To be fair, you could throw a stone in Portland and hit a variety of amazing breweries and no trip would be complete without visiting a few!
Base Camp Brewing - Ever wanted a delicious stout with a toasted marshmallow on top? Look no further.
10 Barrel Brewing - Might we suggest a pizza alongside your beer? Their burgers are pretty amazing, too.
Deschutes Brewery Portland Public House - After all, what trip to Portland is complete without this?
Rogue Pearl Public House - For the namesake alone, we find ourselves drifting back here.
Breakside Brewery - Beer with a side of amazing patio.
If you’re looking for any number of good eats, Portland is sure to not disappoint.
Por Que No? - Easily some of the best tacos that we’ve had outside of Texas. Plus, they serve a margarita in a pint glass. We’re here for it.
Pine State Biscuits - These are the kind of biscuits that you wake up craving. They can also keep you full all day.
Dig A Pony - Super cute little corner bar, with an amazing happy hour. Try the Pink Moose for a spicy tequila kick!
The Screen Door - Holy fried chicken Batman. The mac & cheese is amazing, too, but don’t you dare go without getting the chicken.
Crisp - Like their namesake, crisp salads made to order.
Tasty n Alder - Small plates in the downtown Portland.
Jam on Hawthorne - You’re going to wait a bit, but a serious, can’t-miss brunch.
Afuri - Upscale ramen + sushi, with a great variety of craft cocktails.
Usually desserts aren’t our thing, but Portland has a way of making us crave them the second that we get off the plane.
Salt & Straw - There’s very few foods we’d stand in line too long for, but this is it. Try the gorgonzola & pear (It’s not as weird as it sounds) if you’re feeling adventurous. The Strawberry and Coconut is probably one of our favorite ice creams of all time. Extra points for a crunchy, sweet waffle cone.
