Portland is well-known for its craft beers. In fact, there are more than 70 breweries in the city proper, meaning there are plenty of places to quench your thirst. Though you're welcome to stop by the breweries on your own, taking a guided brewery tour might be a better bet if you're only in Portland for a quick trip. The tours generally stop at a few different breweries in the city, allowing participants to sample several different kinds of beer.

Brewvana wins accolades from past tourgoers for its knowledgeable staff and wide range of beer samples. If you're looking for a quintessential Portland experience, consider Cycle Portland's Brews Cruise, which combines two of the city's passions: biking and breweries. Past bikers particularly enjoyed the ride in between the breweries and appreciated the guides' attention to safety. If you're looking for a more unique brewery tour, check out BeerQuest Walking Tours' Haunted Pub Tour, which weaves brewery stops with stories about Portland's paranormal activity and scandalous residents.

Tours are offered at various days and times; check with a specific operator to learn more. Ticket prices also vary, but you should expect to pay around $50 per person. Most tours last around 2 1/2 hours, though Brewvana's tours span at least 3 hours. Keep in mind that people younger than 21 may not be allowed on the tours. For more information, visit the tour operators' websites.
