To kick off 2018's Portland
To kick off 2018’s Portland Beer Week we’re taking your tastebuds back to the beers that got you hooked with Throwback Thursday. We all have that memory of our first sip of craft beer and how it changed our drinking trajectory. Whether it was a hot summer day having your first pint of lemon wedge garnished Widmer Hefeweizen or your first brown bottle of Bridgeport IPA where you discovered that hop bitterness and a balanced malt presence was your new thing.
