Where to Drink Craft Beer in Portland
Portland, OR, is divided into four quadrants by the Willamette River and Burnside Street. And because Portland is just a little weird, there’s a fifth quadrant. Some quadrants are more suds-soaked than others, but no matter where you find yourself, there’s always good beer nearby.
