"The objections to my question seem to be coming from a place of hate for de Garde" Run a topic search in this forum if you think this is all about hype hate over dG's popularity. If there's a brewery (and brewer) that is more popular, more respected, and just more generally liked in Oregon than DG and Trevor, then I sure don't know them. That's readily apparent from reading over pretty much every dG thread in this forum. As others have pointed out, it takes time and effort to put this post/thread together each quarter, and I know I very much appreciate Guajolote's willingness to take the task on. Every time a new seasonal post goes up, there's invariably concerns expressed that some worthy brewery, multi tap bar or restaurant has been unfairly left out, and that's without the added concern of leaving off some particularly worthy brewery, pub or restaurant from Hood River, Corvallis, Eugene, Tillamook or Bend!
