When it comes to excellence in hand-crafted beverages, the Pacific Northwest–and the Greater Portland region in particular–outshines any other location in the U.S. This is “Beervana,” the land of craft microbreweries. In addition to producing stellar wine grapes, the nutrient-rich soil of the Willamette Valley also produces fantastic hops.
Craft Beer Paradise
The Tualatin Valley is exploding in the Portland craft beer scene, from the ubiquitous McMenamins, which brews several of its beers here, to new local breweries that attract the serious beer connoisseur, as well as the casual beer aficionado.
Some of the best breweries in Oregon can be found within mere minutes of each other in the Tualatin Valley.
More Than Just Beer
The Tualatin Valley brews more than just beer. Visit SakeOne, the country’s first American owned-and-operated large-production sake producer, or taste the crisp apple and pear tastes of hard cider at Bull Run Cider.
Whether you like your beers hoppy, sour or dark, or if you prefer hard cider or sake, there are plenty of brews to satisfy your palate. Pull up a stool and sip for yourself!
Beer in the Tualatin Valley is a big deal. With more than a dozen breweries in the valley alone, it’s a part of the vast Greater Portland region, which beer lovers call a “Beervana.” Portland is one of the top cities for craft breweries, and the Tualatin Valley’s proximity to this famous beer city has its perks.
