My recent trip to the Portland area was filled with great beers. Stopped by the Deschutes Brewery to sample some of their beers. I also had a few from Bridgeport and Hub while I was there. However, the highlight was a small place in Vancouver Washington called By The Bottle. It offers up bottles of beer from around the world, with most being beers not normally sold in that area. Upstairs, they have a taproom with some of the local beers on tap. They also have some cellered beers in the taproom, and I indulged in a 2009 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. Really nice bourbon richness, and 13%ABV.
