How did this site come about? in Late 2011, Emily had an epiphany - that somewhere in Oregon there should be a website dedicated to beer tourism. She looked and looked, finding many wonderful websites about tourism, and many about beer - but none specifically for beer tourism. After several months of wandering around the house muttering about the lack of one main resource, she decided to make it happen. Thus, with the help of the Shamptons, Oregon Beer Country was born.
Who are the people behind Oregon Beer Country? For now, Emily, Shana & Shawn create and design the content and looks of Oregon Beer Country. Three friends who went out on a limb to create something new that they love and believe in, our extended family of beer lovers includes the #pdxbeergeeks, as well as a soft spot for our favorite brewers, beer entrepreneurs, writers, photographers, local personalities, educators, and more.

What's your favorite beer? There are a couple of flippant answers we could give; The one in our hand... A free beer... but those don't adequately convey the love for Oregon's beers. Running the gamut from smoky rauchbier to espresso stout, effervescent pales to astringent and pithy IPAs, there are simply too many to list. Take a look around - we're certain you'll find your next favorite beer in Oregon.
Do you have a mascot? Not yet. Although Emily has a couple dogs, five chickens, and a pet praying mantis, and the Shamptons have a dog named Monkey. Let us know if you have any great ideas for who our mascot should be.
