Portland Walking Tours

Want a fun wine tour? We’ll throw in the beer, cider, and cocktails for free!

October 7th, 2015

Guess what? Thrillist named Oregon “Booziest State” in the nation. Beer Connoisseur gave Portland the title Best Beer City in the World. And there is an official craft distillation revolution going on in Portland where handcrafted, locally-distilled spirits are available for the first time since Prohibition. To top it off (no pun intended), hard cider is having its moment as the latest fastest growing alcohol trend with sales up 100% from last year. So when we here at Portland Walking Tours thought about offering a fun wine tour, we realized, why not throw in all of our liquid assets? It is an embarrassment of riches that we would like to share, and we love the idea of a walking tour with beer, wine, cider, and cocktails all mixed in (pun intended). We call it We Got Tipsy in Portland, because with all of those different tastings for the first time on one tour, that happy state is bound to happen. And that is how our newest tour was born.

We’re all about fun, and we’re also all about giving you the opportunity to become smarter without even realizing you’re learning. Because intelligence is so darn attractive and becoming the go-to person for picking out a good cider or a spirit is going to make you cutting edge among your friends. I mean, hey, while you’re imbibing something truly delicious why not learn about all the things (and we don’t just mean ingredients) that go into making alcohol taste so great in Portland. As your bartender, aka tour guide, introduces your taste buds to the variety of alcohol here, you’ll learn how to really taste these products, and that knowledge will feed your appreciation and curiosity long after the tour ends. We’ll also give you some great snacks, because we would never let you go hungry in Portland.

By the end of the We Got Tipsy in Portland walking tour, you’ll know how and why this local industry ends up on so many best-of and award winning lists. This is so much more than just a fun wine or beer tour. It’s the only tour in town that gives you the best beer, wine, cider, cocktails, and food, all in one dynamic tour. And we promise, what happens in Portland, stays in Portland. Cheers!

The We Got Tipsy in Portland walking tour runs every Saturday at 1:30 PM. The tour begins indoors and under Pioneer Courthouse Square (701 SW 6th Ave) at the Theater on the Square.
