Becoming a Beer Snob at Full Sail Brewery in Hood River, Oregon
Oregon has earned a reputation for excellent craft beers, thanks to the likes of Full Sail, which has been brewing tasty—and award-winning—beers since 1987. The company has a few staples, like the Pale Ale, Amber, and IPA, that can be found just about anywhere in the state. Use your time in the tasting room to sample the limited-edition Brewmaster's Reserve offerings, which range from fresh hop ales to imperial porters and stouts. If you hit the season right, you can ring in the Christmas season with a pint of Wreck the Halls. Tours are free every afternoon, and lunch and dinner are available for soaking up all that beer.
