Heading to Portland

A sacred journey
To breath the Oregon air
And drink the fine beer

Written by Captain Hops.

References: I am heading to Portland, Oregon next week and I am looking forward to getting my hands on some of that great beer. It’s been a few years, so if anyone has any recommendations for must-drink beers or must-see beer bars, leave them in the comments.

Also, if you’ve been sitting on any beer haiku, now is the time to submit them. I like to schedule them to publish so I can enjoy my vacation without a laptop.
