Oregon brewers arguably brew some of the best beer in the United States which tends to support its highest per capita number of brewers in the country ranking. Some of the top breweries in the state include Deschutes. Rogue Ales and Hair of the Dog. While Deschutes and Rogue have their main breweries outside of Portland, Deschutes does brew a few beers at their downtown Portland location and Rogue has a very nice tap room downtown. If you like sours, which we do, add Cascade Brewing to the list.
