Rogue Breweries to produce a Bacon Maple Ale. We tasted it last Thursday, Thanksgiving. Interesting...
Portland has some of the best breweries in the US. The wine is world famous. There are several distilleries producing some very fine gin, vodka, and other liquors and brandies. It's a foodies paradise, too. So many local kinds of produce and meat are used in great restaurants. Portland's reputation as a city of gourmets is well deserved.
