Wonderful afternoon with knowledgeable guides. Everything was well organized and even learned a lot. The breweries were great and accommodating. This is by far the best in Portland.

Awesome tour! Learned about the process of making wine and mead. Zeus was an awesome guide and very knowledgeable about not only the beverages, but the history of the area as well!
