"Whether you are just visiting, have guests from out of town or live here and just want to have a fun day, a Brewvana Tour is the ticket. There are tour choices, the guides are knowledgeable and lots of fun and of our tasting the beer is what its all about. You usually visit 3 or 4 breweries and will three or four samples at each brewery. Some tours include trying sours and other innovations in brewing. Best part of the trip is you're not driving just enjoying the beer. This had been a go to experience whenever we have out of town guests and even as a local, this. is just plain fun!"
We had a great time in May, cruising through a handful of local craft breweries in Portland. (Baerlic, Unicorn, Migration, etc.)
We spent time learning about beer making, lots of different tastings, and plenty of fun on the bus. There was a wide variety of local beers and had a great meal at the end (best pub nachos ever). Our guide was an excellent source of information (and entertainment). Our favourite tour of the three we did that weekend!
I booked this tour to learn more about the differences in the fermentation process between cider, beer, and whiskey. I had a ton of fun! Everyone at the stops were very informative, and our Brewvana guide was great! Highly recommend this tour, as well as spending additional time (if possible) at any of the stops along the way. Definitely a highlight of my Portland trip. Thanks for the visit!
On a recent trip to Portland we decided that we wanted to do a brewery tour and found Brewvana, and so glad that we did. Our guide, Kelene, was informative and fun! She got to know our likes and adjusted to meet the needs of everyone, introducing us to many great beers that some may have never tasted if it wasn’t for her. Thanks for a great day, Kelene!
Upright Brewing specializes in farmhouse inspired beers rooted in France and Belgium, but made with a Pacific Northwest twist, dabbling in both classic and quirky projects from around the world. The name references the primary instrument of Charles Mingus, a musician whose compositions, like Upright’s brews, defy categorization. At Upright, the recipes and processes are decidedly unbound, making for true hybrid styles that share Mingus’ spirit of exercising creativity and craft.
