Done? Okay, good. This plaudit is probably no surprise to anyone who's lived here for longer than five seconds; I think Portland has topped numerous "best beer city" lists before, but the fresh July issue of T+L again verifies it:
Talk about a beer capital: the Oregon city has 39** operating breweries—more than any other city in the U.S. The big names include MacTarnahan's and BridgePort—the latter offering a seasonal Stumptown tart made with local strawberries. No surprise, AFC voters embraced the Oregon city for its all-natural personality, ranking it first for farmers' markets, summer visits, and being eco-conscious.
Now if you'll excuse me, I will be two growlers deep for the rest of the afternoon. It's my civic duty!
