Love this beautiful DIPA by @altamontbeerworks called Juice Above the Clouds. First debuted for #sfbeerweek, this was their west coast take on a north east style. Sitting at 9% abv this brew is dangerously juicy and easy to drink without all the haziness of a typical NE style. They did a beautiful job and it is definitely my favorite beer by #altamontbeerworks. Thank you for bringing it back! Cheers!!

One of my top favorite places that I visited while in Portland was The @labrewatory. I definitely highly recommend it! All their beers are super unique in their own way. Loved the creativity that went into every beer that I tried.

Made a stop just after visiting Cascade to hit up @thegrowlerguys because it was right around the corner. Went in there in hopes to try a couple breweries that I wouldn't be able to get to stop at while in Portland. Tried out @barleybrowns and @block15brewing. Both Breweries were outstanding! I would have tried more while there but was in a hurry to get to the next stop. Definitely an awesome place to visit when in the area! Cheers!!

Gotta give a special little shout to @cascadebrewingbarrelhouse's 2016 Diesel. It's an Imperial Stout aged in Heavenhill and Pinot Barrels for 7months with Molasses and Vanilla added. It was absolutely mind blowing and proves that Cascade doesn't just do amazing sours.

I just had to get over to @cascadebrewingbarrelhouse and I am so glad I did! So many amazing sours! Have to give it up to the 2016 Honeycot. Never had a sour like it before and boy was it amazing!

Currently sitting in @commonsbrewery loving on this little sampler. This place has a great ambience! Keeping this post sweet and simple because I wanna get back to these lovely beers. Cheers!!

I just had to make a stop at one of my favorite North West Style breweries @deschutesbeer. Such a gorgeous pub! Food was amazing and of course the beer was outstanding. My favorite beer there for me had to go to Hop On The Back End Imp. IPA. Loved this place greatly! Cheers!!

Wow! This place is unbelievable! Tried everything here at @greatnotionpdx and was blown away. Thank you to everyone who recommended it. On the hoppy side my favorite was the Super Ride imp. IPA and on the sour side was the Strawberry Shortcake. Got to give a mention to the Double Stack Imp. Stout made with Maple Syrup. Mind blown!

That's right folks, I'm headed to Portland OR. I will probably land around 10pm and will be there till Sunday evening. Where should I go? What awesome brewerys/taphouses/eaterys/ do I NEED to visit? Tag places in the comments! Portland here I come!

I fucking love @altamontbeerworks!!!!

Sometimes you just need to switch it up! @missiontrailcider Plum Jerkum in a 16oz glass! So refreshing. Definitely what I needed after a couple hop bombs!

Finishing up the Campbell @thebeerwalk photos tonight with a @hopdogma Silly Gimmick. Love that juice!
