    Hi all,

    So I'll be in town from Saturday evening to Monday morning, but am flying in and wondering if there's enough around the airport to avoid renting a car...obviously looking for the typical bottle shops/breweries/beer-centric restaurants, but other suggestions always welcomed. Thanks for the help fellas!

    Not much by the airport except a Buffalo Wild Wings. But you can hop on The Max and be downtown in minutes.

    Fantastic, who doesn't love BWW? Just kidding, The Max is pretty easy to use?

    Yeah. Buy a ticket and hop on. $5 will get you all over town for the entire day.

    Fantastic, will do! Are Deschutes, Fat Head, and Upright fairly accessible by the max?

    Within a few blocks. You might want to hop the street car to get to Upright. If you have the day pass, you don't need a separate ticket.
