BREWVANA is Portland

best breweries, coffee roasters, food, and distilleries

Portland is weird and beered. We're known as Rose city, Rip city, Bridge city, Stumptown, and Beervana. We have 5 quadrants, more strip clubs than any other city in the world and recreational marijuana is legal! We love all the poisons- this city is overflowing with beer, spirits, cider, coffee, tea, mead, fizzy wine, kombucha and more. Our hip and innovative culture embraces the arts, theatre, music and makers. We aren't scared of the rain, we love the outdoor adventures too and have some of the most beautiful hikes and excursions the pacific northwest has to offer. Forest park is in our backyard, Mt Hood is an hour drive, and a perfect day trip to the coast. Did we mention the food? Food carts, donuts, chocolate, ice cream and more - this is a foodie town - with award winning chefs leading the way.

YOU want to experience Portland and all the abundance that it has to offer. It can be overwhelming to decide where to start. We understand how it feels to be in a town with so many amazing things to check out and too little time to explore them.

Our team has spent years cultivating relationships and gaining knowledge and we're here to make sure you have a fun and memorable Portland experience. We have a passion for craft in Portland and we're eager to share it with you! With our educated and fun tour guides, relationships with our amazing partners and our eagerness to please, BREWVANA crafts the best all inclusive tasting experiences that allow you to sit back and enjoy the ride while we coordinate the details. We provide insider access so you can go behind the scene to meet the makers, hear the story and have a great time! We hope that you leave buzzing in the euphoric state of "BREWVANA", with a new appreciation for Portland, our craft partners and life!

Friendly. Engaging. Educated.
