If nirvana is a place of complete bliss and delight, then it is no surprise that Portland is commonly referred to as Beervana. With over 30 microbreweries in the metro area, the city is a dream for any beer lover. In fact, a recent poll by GoTime.com named Portland the best city for happy hour in America.
From Bambuza’s grilled chicken skewers to Berry-Ka-Bob’s white chocolate covered strawberries, some of the best bites at “The Bite of Oregon” are served on a stick. The Bite of Oregon is an annual event held at the Portland waterfront that serves up some of the state’s finest cuisine, craft beers, and local wines. If that’s not enough to get you through the gates, how about live entertainment like the Oregon Iron Chef competition and dozens of local bands rocking everything from swanky jazz to “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”
