In the ever-more-crowded field of cities vying to be craft-beer capital of the West (Fort Collins! San Diego!), Portland is making its move.
One. Restaurateur Kurt Huffman is opening a massive brewpub in the Inner Southeast (706 S.E. Sixth Ave.) called Loyal Legion, which boasts 99—yes, 99— beers on tap, all from Oregon. The food’s local too: specifically, Olympia Provisions charcuterie.
Three. Finally, leave it to a Portland company to invent a pressurized, insulated growler (right)—it’s almost like carrying your own tap. A Kickstarter project, the uKeg is supposed to be ready this month. (Even if it’s not, you won’t go thirsty.)
