I have found heaven, and it is in Oregon. I had long heard about all the craft and micro brews that had come from this state. Many times, you wonder if certain places and things start to get by on reputation after many years. Not so here. The beer has lived up to the hype so far, and we’re only half way through our trip. What has been so impressive to me is the freshness of the hop character that most of the beers have. These Oregonians are some hop heads, definitely after my own heart!

EDIT – 9/27/2007 – We survived the journey and returned home yesterday! Like any good writer, however, I must keep my audience in suspense and will post the completion of our trip in stages over the next few days. Be sure to check back! :)
