I had some Double Mountain IRA about a week ago. It's a Red IPA. It was incredible.
Double Mountain is out of Bend, Ore.
Headed to Portland for the Opening next week and I'm excited to get up there and try some new beer out. Any suggestions on bars or great places for beer for me?

A favorite is too hard for me, but make sure you visit Hair of the Dog in Portland. If you want a bar with selection, The Horse Brass is great and Belmont Station is a couple blocks away with thousands of choices.

Are those downtown?
Had some Mirror Pond yesterday.
Really? With all of the other micro choices around?
Double Mountain is in Hood River.
My favorite beer(s) right now are coming from Boneyard out of Bend. Their RPM IPA, Diablo Rojo, and their seasonal Skunkape IRA are amazing.
New Castle is the weirdest "beer" I've ever tasted.
These days I love Ninkasi Oatis. Pretty much any IPA will do the trick. Heater Allen Pils is great on tap. As always, Bridgeport IPA is great as are Mirrorpond and Black Butte Porter. Mix MP and BBP together for a Dirty Pond! New Seasons gets Pliny the Elder in occasionally. Not really worth the money on a regular basis but it's good to try if you're really into beer.
A Bolivian lager, it's a really refreshing yet tasteful beer.
Austral is my favorite Chilean beer, but I don't think either get up to the States.
Still love Widmer even though it's not as good as it used to be.
I was there last summer and it was pretty disappointing. The service was awful. I wanted to do a dirty pond and they wouldn't make one for me. So I asked if I could have 2 beers and an empty glass, and they said no. So my buddy asked if he could have a mirror pond and I could have a BBP and could we have an extra glass, and they said no. I mean come on, I'm at the freakin brewery and they are all stuck up about drinking some damn beer!
Widmer is great with their seasonal variety but I don't think the overall quality is as high as many of the more local craft breweries that aren't able to crank out so many different beers at such high volume.
Widmer Drop Top Amber Ale remains my favorite beer, however I will say Blue Moon & Chimay are sounding really good right about now!
McMenamins has some fine beers. Love the hammer head pale ale.
The Twilight Summer Ale is pretty good, but I think that The Abyss is my favorite from Deschutes.
BoneYard Diablo Rojo is legit. Def a top 3 choice for me.
Drop Top Amber on draught is great, in the bottle it's just okay.
That's one of the few places I go and have to get a paddle or taster platter of beer. So many great choices.
Screw Deschutes Brewery. I've boycotted them ever since they tried to get the Oregon legislature to shut down every small brewery in the state after their attorneys found some 100 year old bs law on the books.
Be careful with Hair of the Dog I walked right by it and didn't even notice it. It's just some inconspicuous building that used to be a mechanics shop I think. It's just across the Morrison Bridge, so it isn't far from "downtown". Belmont Station is definitely not downtown but this is their current draft list alone.
Gigantic The City Never Sleeps Dark Saison
Russian River Blind Pig IPA
Hop Valley Pollination
Oskar Blues Deviant Dales
GoodLife Comatose Imperial IPA
Evil Twin Ron & the Beast Ryan
Deschutes The Stoic
Elysian Yuzu Golden Ale
Goodlife Good & Worthy
Green Flash Extra Pale Ale
Reverend Nat's Ginger Cider
Three Creeks 5 Pine Porter
Schooner Exact Imperial Porter
Epic Hop Syndrome Lager
Gigantic Rauchwiezen and the Bandit
Bear Republic Racer 5 (cask)

USC is like a german car, every piece that breaks is of the highest quality.
Sounds like a place I need to be at. Thanks for posting the list.
Russian River Blind Pig>>>Pliny The Elder IMO
Down to 11 upvotes left.... who else is getting them?
Like OCanada said, Hair of the Dog isn't downtown but it's a stone's throw from the river on the east side. Both Belmont Station and The Horse Brass are maybe ten minutes from downtown, still in the heart of Portland on the east side.
Not sure this is a great conversation for me to have since I'm looking out my window at the Horse Brass as I type this and it's making my mouth water haha.
Rogue Dead Guy
Definitely try Deschutes newer beer Chain Breaker. Never heard of a White IPA until this, and it is the bees knees. Amazing on tap, still very respectable bottled.
Easily my two favorite beers are Copasetic IPA and Desolation IPA from Amnesia Brewing in Portland.
