Apparently breweries are a sizable deal in Portland OR! My now bestie and I like to joke about our almost disaster of a first date; He picked me up and told me he had a surprise for me, i am not a Portland Or native so he really had an easy time shocking me, but since breweries are so popular and I didn’t guess it, he arranged for us to check out some of the local breweries.
He planned to try out IPAs and talk about which ones we liked.
It should have been an awesome date night, well I honestly don’t like beer. I think beer looks and tastes love pee. I have tried to drink it before and I usually end up gagging. I tried to be a fantastic sport however I could not force it down, but luckily our bestie was up to the challenge of saving our first dateâ€¦ There is a distillery row, east of the Willamette river. It is a whole street of distrilliers which means you can find gin, vodka, whiskey, any drink of choice really. It was really cool popping in and out of the peculiar venues, then both of us even took a tour of one as well, however after drinking and having a great day, the night was brought to a close by going to see a legal cannabis dispensary. It was really cool experiencing a legal pot shop. My former state didn’t allow for anything other than medical marijuana. So I got to tour a distillery and try legal cannabis for the first time on our date. I of course wanted a fifth one and then another date. Now our bestie and I have been dating for more than five months and are happy together.
