The most fun way to experience a brewery tour in Portland, Oregon, is to be pedaled from brewery to brewery by a young and nubile rider. This is an eco-friendly transportation and marketing alternative.
I found out about this PDX Pedicab tour through Groupon, where I purchased the deal for a tour group that I was leading on one of our Pacific Northwest tours last fall. Here is their website link.
Imagine enjoying fresh air and city sites from your cab while touring a number of (well…three) local distilleries and sampling their brews. You also learn the history of their brewery and their spirits.
As you may know, Portland has become a world-renowned center for microbreweries and the unofficial beer capital of the U.S. with more breweries than any other city in the country – 32 within the city limits and 38 if you count the entire metropolitan area. With a renaissance of craft-brewing in Portland since the 1980’s, it has been called “Beervana” and “Munich on the Williamette”.
Don’t forget to tip your rider. They live on tips, which are not included in the price of your tour. They work hard for your enjoyment!
