At Adaptu, I’m lucky enough to interact with bloggers all the time. One of my favorites is Baker from ManvsDebt.com. Baker’s in my hometown for World Domination Summit, an conference put on by Chris Guillebeau, author of The Art of Non Conformity, where 500+ attendees from all over the world are coming to Portland, OR strategizing and adventure!
To help attendees feel more at home here in Portland, I took Baker, his wife Courtney and their daughter Mili to two great local breweries! Since this is a beer blog, I thought I’d share them here with you all here too.
First stop, Deschutes Brewery: – I’m a big fan of Deschutes (or “Dutchess” as I used to call it when I was little). I love their sustainability practices including using their spent grain to make their flat bread entrees. While I’m a big supporter of organics and love Deschutes Green Lakes Organic Ale, my all time favorite beer is the Twilight Summer Ale. Released just in time for #WDS!
Our second brewery stop was McMenamins The Rams Head: as an added bonus, our friend, Sean Ogle joined us. McMenamins locations are known for their artwork, each location is different and features local artists. The buildings are literally covered, ceilings to floor with art. I love it! They have a great happy hour, cheap food and free wifi. What else do you need for to catch up with new friends from WDS? My favorite beer is the Ruby Ale. Definitely try it or the Ruby-Raspberry Milkshake. Beer + Ice Cream = Dream Combination!
Coming to #WDS? What are you most excited about? Going to check out any breweries? If so, what ones?
