The Pour Fool has posted his assessment of the top ten beer towns in the United States. My home state of Oregon has two entries: Portland and Bend. (In another post, he seems to have a high opinion of the Pelican brewery in glorious Pacific City on the Oregon coast.) The comments to the first post are also interesting, since many people disagree with his rankings: the most common claim is that Philadelphia should have made the list, but he explains in his responses why it didn't.
And despite all this wonder in my home state, I don't drink alcohol. I figure everyone has an allotment of alcohol that they're allowed in life, and I blew through mine in about seven years.
