There is a city where beer-loving groups need to go. That city is Portland, Oregon.
There is a place—a name—on the tongues of beer lovers that excites the mind, titillates the taste buds. This name is only whispered, for fear the magic may evaporate and the mystical land of hops and barley will be lost forever. That name is ... "Beervana."

"Some fifty-odd breweries and brewpubs—and plenty of hops—is what attracts most of us."
