My friend, who is also into beer, is going to be taking a roadtrip through the Northwest in a week or so. He's not a BAer, so I'm posting this for him. He's particularly interested in getting advice on: a) breweries that aren't "obvious" (i.e. ones that he might not think to stop at, but which have great beer) b) good beer shops to check out while he's in the area, and c) nice places (bars, restaurants, pubs) to have a drink at night that have interesting selections and/or good local stuff you can't get elsewhere. Basically, he wants to get the experiences you can't get here on the East Coast. For example, small, local, and eccentric stores, mildly off the radar but with a good selection and/or staff, would be of more interest than large beer warehouses (though knowing about those can't hurt, either!). He's going to be hitting up these cities Portland, OR Boise, ID Twin Falls, ID Cody, WY Rapid City, SD Dickinson, ND Billings, MT Butte, MT Helena, MT Kalispell, MT Spokane, WA Seattle, WA Of course, there's Cascade and Hair of the Dog in Portland, but what else should he be sure not to miss? Thanks for any advice you can give! Cheers, Chris P.S. I'm not 100% sure this is the right forum for this - please tell me if it's not (or bump me to the right one).
