    In more detail....

    Mainly beer. Portland has the nickname 'Beervana', on account of the number of breweries and word-play on the late Kurt Cobain's band name. The city is, possibly, number one in the world for number of breweries (seems to be anywhere between 28 and 40) and the quality and number of styles is legendary. Other breweries of note in Oregon include Deschutes & Rogue. These are the guys that are influencing the more progressive British breweries, such as Brew Dog, Dark Star & Thornbridge.

    Then there's the mountains, the coast, mountain biking, cool cities. Well worth a visit, I'd say.

    Specs: 15º PLATO, 59 IBU, 76.1 AA, 14.2º Lovibond

    So, how strong is that? In layman's terms?

    Well we were in Vancouver (which has loads of good brewhouses), so it would have been rude not to.

    We took the long way over the rockies to Calgary via a few days in Seattle & Spokane.

    Spokane also has a couple of good brewhouses.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    Not a great month for new pubs, but I loved the feel of The Jubilee Refreshment Rooms at Sowerby Bridge station. http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/68000/ A labour of love for two real ale and train loving brothers, apparently twelve years in the making. (Review to follow) Great beer and very friendly.
