Portland vs. Atlanta

So Nick and I recently had the luxury of visiting Portland, Oregon for a week. I had only heard of this legendary beer city before, this was my first visit. Here is my list of super cool things about Portland’s beer scene.

IMG_5745 IMG_5426 IMG_5467 IMG_5251

1. Breweries can sell directly to the customer. So you can drink delish beer at Hair of the Dog, Cascade or Deschutes and then walk out with a bottle to enjoy later.

2. Bars are not required to serve food. This allows them to focus simply on awesome beer.

3. You can bicycle to most places in the city! That means way less risk of people drinking and driving.

If Atlanta’s law’s and streets were to change a bit we too could be a beer city just as awesome as Portland. After all with Orpheus opening just off the Beltline and more awesome breweries on the way, before you know it there will be a brewery in everyone’s hood!

PS. If you’re pinball wizard like me, check out Ground Kontrol in the Pearl District of Portland, one of the most epic selections of pinball games! Come on Joystick, take it up a notch!

The Porter is on the Golf Channel!

Check it out! We are a favorite spot of PGA golfer Roberto Castro!
