In the summer of 2015, The Oregonian
— the largest newspaper in Portland
and the entire Pacific Northwest
— published a series of eleven pub crawl articles
to help their readers explore Beervana.
These articles intrigued and excited me, because I realized they could help me combine two of my favorite hobbies: exploring Portland photographically
and enjoying good food and drink.
I have indulged in only one of these pub crawls so far — in September 2015 I went on the Pearl District Walk.
After that experience, I am thinking that I will probably not
hit all of the pubs on any other pub crawl during a single outing. Visiting five to fifteen
in one crawl is too much all at once! I much prefer to break these pub tours down into small-er chunks, and incorporate them into my regular photographic outings around Portland.
Because the photos from the Pearl District pub crawl will most likely be my only album dedicated completely to a pub crawl — with other mini pub crawls being included in other outing albums — I have created this album, which gathers into a single location all of the photos I have taken of food, drink or facilities at any brewery, pub or restaurant in Oregon during 2015. In this way, no matter which albums such photos are in, they will all be found here.
For similar photos from all years together, be sure to browse the Oregon Pub Crawl (All Years)
album. If you would like to see the 2015 pub photos taken only at McMenamins venues, see McMenamins Pub Crawl 2015.
