Rogue Brewery started right down the street here in Southern Oregon, but after the New Year's Day flood of 1997 destroyed
it's operation in Ashland, It never rebuilt here, just continued at it's Newport brewery. The Portland Alehouse gives it a presence in Oregon's biggest city. Our Rogue Creamery winning World's best blue cheese was pretty cool too

    I've always enjoyed the libations coming out of the Deschutes Brewery in Bend.

    I met Michael Jackson in Boston and have a signed copy of one of his books........he's quite the character!! Sounds like you all have some good beer and cheese going on down there in Portland......going to have it make it a destination!

    say hey, Ileechef,.....In the real world we're 300 miles south of Portland, in the middle of a unique ecological area where the cascades and coast ranges collide, creating a "bridge area" where species from all over meet and mingle, much like a roadfood gathering. You & hubster would enjoy it greatly. Home to Dagoba chocolates, Endangered species chocolates, Sappho hill soaps, marantha nut butters, and a whole lot of other alternate food producers. It's filled with expatriate chefs just like you. your boat wouldn't make the river rapids, however.

    bill, those are some pretty cool websites! I didn't know you had a large salmon run there. And the chocolate on the guy's head, EEEWWWWW. It sure looks like beautiful country and one we'll have to visit for sure. Did you get a chance to get to Portland to meet Michael Jackson??
