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.
