Patrick, you had me at “I'd like to buy you a beer.” But we're going to have to broaden your horizons, because there are some pretty incredible breweries here in Portland other than Rogue. Also, we've got a growing Distillery culture which is outstanding. Such as East Side Distillery. And don't even get me started on the foodie culture in Portland. There is a top-notch restaurant (or cart) for nearly every sort of food you'd want. So you should definitely visit your friend, and not just because I'm a fan of free beer. ;)Anyway, thanks for becoming a member and welcome to the forums!
