One day in September 2015, I went on a six-mile urban photo hike in Portland,
Oregon. When I finished around noon I was tired, hungry and thirsty, but there are not many restaurants in that mostly-residential area. So I took Bus 20
west down Burnside until I ended up at Henry’s 12th Street Tavern,
where I had an excellent lunch and a refreshing beer.
Because my morning photo excursion was already completed, and because I had all afternoon to do something before my 6:00 train left for home, I decided to go on one of the pub crawls I mentioned in my article Breweries and Pubs in Portland and Beyond.
It wasn’t hard to pick the Pearl District Pub Crawl,
seeing that I was already having food and beer at the first stop, on the southern edge of the Pearl District.
And by rearranging the order, the last brewery would not be very far from Union Station
at the northern end.
Of course, because I had my camera equipment
with me, and because food photography
was one of my newfound passions in 2015, I made sure to document my entire six-pub tour with plenty of photos.
In fact, I took about twice as many pictures during the afternoon pub crawl as I did on my morning six-mile photo-hike! But I guess that should not be too surprising — I think it would be accurate to say that the Pearl District is a lot more photogenic than the Hazelwood Neighborhood.
Over a period of five hours, I took 122 photos during my Pearl District pub crawl. The best 41 can be viewed in this appropriately-named album. For more photos related to Oregon breweries, pubs and restaurants, see the Oregon Pub Crawl (All Years) conglomerate super-album.
