Monterey to Portland

Visited my friend who lives in Monterey and then did the long drive back to Portland. Here’s some beer!

Right in downtown Monterey, Alvarado Street Brewery! Doing that hazy IPA shit that everyone is all excited about. Best beer they had was the milk stout with coffee on nitro though.

Of course I had to stop by Aptos St BBQ. They do brisket right here.

Hmm, I swear that’s the same artwork that you find on a beer label. The brewery is right behind me isn’t it.

Yep! Sante Adairius Forest for the Trees! One of my favorite IIPAs and something you can only get in growlers or on draft. I also only lasted about 5 minutes here before some random guy I didn’t recognize called me out by name. God I wish I was better at names and faces, I wouldn’t have nearly as many awkward moments!

10 Barrel, just because I haven’t been to the original taproom before. Cloudchaser IIPA is pretty good, and named after the brand new chairlift at Mt. Bachelor!

I know it isn’t beer, but I went through Bend on my way back from Monterey so I could check out Smith Rock. This place is absolutely beautiful, I can’t wait to come back here in summer and hike around!
