    Wouldn't say MUST eat, but you're right near Breakside. Definitely worth a visit.

    If you have a car, Toro Bravo is less than a 10 minute drive and I would qualify that as a must eat. There will be a wait though.

    Pretty close to Hat Yai, some of the best Thai fried chicken and curry around. The brisket curry and spicy ground pork are also great there.

    Sorry, didn't mean to ask and run. I wound up going to Toro Bravo but we skipped the show at the High Water Mark.

    I also hit up Sizzle Pie, Tasty n Alder, and Screen Door. Gawd Dem. The food here has gotten amazing over the past 10 years.

    I still think Screen Door is the best fried chicken I've ever had.

    WTF HotD has Matt on draft.

    I haven't kept up with their bottles, so I might grab a few to take home. I wish he'd get over the Stone thing. Stop trying to make fetch happen.

    walk a block down the street from HotD to Boke Bowl and get a 3pk of their fried chicken steam buns with orange dot sauce. the chicken is great but that sauce is pure crack.

    ^ Breakside on Dekum has good food. Hat Yai and Podnah's aren't too far from there either.

    EDIT: I a page

    I've already flown out, or I'd join you. It was a short trip with most of our time in Lincoln City.

    Wish I could have met with you or some other PDX locals, but judging from my last post in this thread, I would not have made a good first impression.

    Sweet town, looking forward to my next trip.

    Not too excited about this year's 3 Way, and frankly, a little disappointed based on the breweries involved. It's not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm probably not buying as much of this as I usually do.

    The one caveat is that I'm drinking it on tap. Interested to see if there's any difference with ty he cans.

    Does it taste green? Thought the beta batches were pretty solid

    No, not to me. It just doesn't really taste that differently from most of the higher end hazies. Like I said, it's not bad at all, but also not mind blowing.

    Edit: I felt pretty much the same about the betas. Liked them, but didn't think they were amazing or anything.
