    I've only had the beta batches so far, but they tasted a lot like your standard Cloudburst IPA.

    Yeah, I hear what he's saying... but for the most part, a 4 pack of a hazy is now pushing $20. Fucking insane.
    3way is, what, $14? Yeah, I'm all over it all summer. Even better with the dry hop variants. Way to still somehow separate yourselves.

    Good point on the cost. Need to keep that in perspective

    I've had the new 3-Way on draft & in a can now. I like it. It's not the best one (bring back 2014, plz), but I'll drink my share this summer. I also don't consider it a hazy. It's cloudy, but it's not OJ/chicken stock/gravy. And, at least IMO, the body/mouthfeel is nothing like a hazy (no chalkiness or hop burn). Yes, the flavor is kinda juicy, but there's a good lingering hop bite in the finish.

    Agree about this distinction, was just talking about this with someone yesterday. Also, price is key.

    20X(X-1) is my favorite Mega Man.

    That sounds exactly like a Cloudburst IPA which was my takeaway from some beta batches at Latona Pub.

    Stopped at Chuck’s today for some new Mirage cans and just missed out on draft 3-Way. The keg blew right before I got there. Cans hitting Seattle next week.

    So far I like this years 3-Way. It's way better than last years. That one just never tasted right. Although I still prefer the Fields of Green and Crysknife over 3-Way.

    As I predicted. Tin Bucket used to be one of the most reasonably priced places in Portland, but lately became one of the most expensive. Hopefully the new business model will bring in more customers. Not something I'm interested in though.

    Another bachelor party request... where would be a decent place for dinner that could accommodate 10? Good taplist would be a bonus, but not required. We’ll be brewery and bar hopping all day so focus would be on the food at that point and getting everyone together.

    Also planning a day trip to the coast/Tillamook. We want to grill steaks at our airbnb one night, is there anywhere out that way that we should be buying steaks from? Or just buy somewhere in Portland? Thanks!

    10 is getting up there, but Andina, Nostrana, Nel Centro, Irving Street Kitchen, Jake's, and Ringside will all accommodate larger groups. Maybe not 10, but it couldn't hurt to ask Higgins (one of the OG farm to table beer spots) or maybe Departure. I know Deschutes and/or Von Ebert in the Pearl can definitely handle those numbers, but obviously call ahead.

    For steaks, stop here on your way out to Tillamook: https://meatingplacepdx.com

    Thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for. I haven’t been to Portland in a few years so looking forward to checking out some of the new places. Reading the last few pages has me pumped.

    Any tips on beaches/coastal towns to hit up? Preferably within 2 hour drive from Portland, and not too far from Tillamook. Heard good things about the Pacific City Pelican brewpub, but is there much else to do around there? Cannon worth the drive? Ideally would like to do some beach chilling, kayaking or maybe sime hiking. Plan is to drive out to the coast somewhere early, then drive back to PDX through Tillamook sometime in the 3-7pm window De Garde is open. I think I went to Cape Lookout last time, but wasn’t much going on-other than being ridiculously pretty.
