Experience Portland from a beer-lover’s perspective. Portland is home to 50+ breweries within the city limits – 70 if you consider the entire metro area. That’s more than any other city on Earth! Sample stouts, IPAs, ambers and other handcrafted ales and lagers at selected breweries in the city. Learn about the past and present brewing industry in the Pacific Northwest and sight see through Portland’s downtown, vibrant neighborhoods and scenic bridges. All of the breweries we visit are “micro” or “craft” breweries, producing fewer than 20,000 barrels per year, so expect delicious hand-crafted pours that you can’t find anywhere except in the tasting room!
The tour will highlight up to four local breweries including whenever possible a behind-the-scenes tour of a brewery and an opportunity to meet with a brewmaster! Also enjoy interpretation of the natural and cultural history of Portland by our experience guides as you sip on some of Portland’s best brews!

EverGreen Escapes is Cascadia’s premier local and sustainable adventure, nature and epicurean tour company. Specializing in private and small group, naturalist led escapes in bio-fueled Mercedes Vans and Crossovers. We’re a small business with a Big Mission: to create positive change in the world by connecting people with places and nature. Our guides aren’t just naturalists, they’re Escape Artists.
- We recommend wearing layers that you can add if there is wind or rain, and remove when there is sunshine. Comfortable walking shoes will allow you to explore further at some of our stops. It’s always a good idea to bring sunglasses and a camera! We provide reusable water bottles, along with other snacks and refreshments. See more on how to Pack and Prepare.
2. How strenuous is this? How much experience do I need to have?
- All of our scheduled departures are meant for beginners (easy to moderate). We try to cater our tours to all ability and interest levels – and this really depends on the group that day. Your Escape artist will choose the difficulty of the physical activity based on the group’s interest and ability level. If you are interested in a different level, we can certainly put together a private itinerary specifically for you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding specific questions!
