Portland's Love Affair with all Things Wet(Beverages)
When it comes to beverages, Portlanders don't mind if they're served hot or cold — they simply want them to be the best.
That's why you can't walk more than a few blocks in any direction without bumping into a specialty coffee shop or a local brewpub,
where craft brewers are busily creating some of the country's most distinctive beers.
And that's not all Portland offers — it's also the birthplace of Tazo Tea and Oregon Chai.
The city itself is nurturing a growing microdistillery movement,
while the nearby Willamette Valley produces world-class wines, and Forest Grove, Ore., is home to SakéOne, the world's only American-owned saké brewery.
The following is an overview of the local beverage scene; for a more in-depth look, a dedicated "Liquid Assets" media kit is available from Travel Portland.
