If there was any doubt that Portland, and Oregon in general, was Beervana, take a look at this map...http://www.guestontap.com/map.shtml
There are a few mistakes but we're working to get it updated.
I agree with you about the beer. However, I lived out there for 5 or 6 years (in Tualatin) and wouldn't move back there for anything. The weather SUCKS, the school system is awful (the main reason we went back to Nebraska), the cost of living rediculus, and crime is rampant. On the other hand, the beer was wonderful and the scenery (when it wasn't foggy or raining) was beautiful. I did have the chance to walk through some hop fields near Wilsonville once and for a short time I thought I was in heaven.
