Portland Walking Tours

Microbreweries Tour: Beervana Tour


Portland is famous for a lot of things - its bridges, its six months of overcast and rain, and - more and more - for its other liquid asset, beer. The city has just eleven bridges, but forty-nine breweries (and counting!). In fact, Portland is one of the beer capitals of the world, and now has more breweries than any other city, recently even surpassing Cologne, Germany! Perhaps that's why so many people have started calling Portland "Beer-vana."

Our Beervana Tour is not your college buddy's frat party drunken night out (aka pub crawl), but a sophisticated look (and taste) at one of Portland's most precious craft products - beer. On this walk, you'll have fun discovering the art and science of brewing. You'll find out what made Portland the epicenter of America's craft brewing renaissance, learn some of the history of Portland's transformation into one of the world's premier craft brewing centers, and, of course, you'll also get to sample its fruits firsthand.

On this tour you will visit three of Oregon's premier craft breweries, learn about ingredients and the brewing process, and sample a selection of Portland's finest craft beers. We'll also give you the fascinating true stories behind the role that sustainability and organics play in the craft beer industry.
