To help me explore the beer, food and historical venues of McMenamins’ Pacific Northwest brewpub
empire, I recently acquired a McMenamins Passport,
which is kind of like a treasure hunt and a rewards program rolled into one. Because 45 of their 57 locations are in the Portland metro area,
my passion to explore McMenamins is a natural extension and combination of my passion for Portland
and my passion for good food and beer.
As I collect as many of the 124 Passport stamps as I can over the coming months and years, the details of that adventure will be documented here in articles and photos. To make it easy to check back often, I have also created the Web address mcmenamins.byrdphoto.com
