Subby, never act like a beermobile is better than a flying car. You never joke about the flying car.

The Drunk IT Guy: Useless..

you say until you are stuck at the datacenter and you live in "The city that always sleeps" AKA Portland, when no good food or beer is arround (they all closed at 8...joking, Kind of) and the Hopworks bike stops by, feeds you , puts a few beers in your belly and you can go back to work...

Then the guy becomes a farking hero.

Considering that you can get a DUI citation for riding a bike while intoxicated, I wonder if the tapped keg counts as an "open container" violation.

The problem with this is the drunken driving laws, you have a perpetual open container and you are dispensing alcohol without a license.

a) No hero tag until we sample the beer and pizza.

b) I'm thinking these two things don't complement each other (legally):

Well, not sure if they are worried about tickets, but OLCC will surely susspend your licence if you sell beer drunk, remember folks, Hopworks is a brewery, they are not giving the beer out free.

The beer is good, the pizza, meh it is not toxic, like any pie in the city of Portland, it leaves a lot to be desired.

OK 3 good pies in the city, but even those are sub par when you compair it to a Chichago or NYC pie.

MoiKeA: Considering that you can get a DUI citation for riding a bike while intoxicated, I wonder if the tapped keg counts as an "open container" violation.

Here in Cali it's:

Bicycling Under Influence of Alcohol or Drugs. VC 21200.5

Provides that it is unlawful to ride a bicycle upon a street or highway while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage or drug or the combination of alcohol and a drug, punishable by a fine of up to $250. A person arrested may request a chemical test. If the person is under 21 but over 13 years of age, his or her driving privilege will be suspended for one year or delayed for one year once the person is eligible to drive.

And I drink and ride quite often.

Minneapolis has the only one in the US. They call it the Pedal Pub. Recently got the laws changed to allow them to be drinking while on public roads. Fun to ride on for a bit but it's a biatch after a while as it only has one gear and not everyone has pedals.

I live right near this brewery, so Im getting a kick..etc.

They have really good beer, food is meh.
The best part is the bathrooms, they have banana seats posted above the unrinals so you have something to lean on when you aren't too steady.

Also, a trike may have been a more stable idea, but this town seems to like the dutch bakfiet things, they look like wheelbarrow bikes. I have no idea why this is.

I will give ya that porltand "food" is far from tasty, well at least to outsiders who fall in to silly traps like Jake's, the Portland City Grill(located 5 floors above my work) and the Wildwood. But that is mostly because they try and make food "Healthy" Yuch! the key to eating in PDX is avoid anyplace that has a umbrella rack, because that means it is a establishment for outsiders.
As for the Beer, WTF? Actually, nevermind, keep on beliving that BS, leaves more for me.

Well, it was him saying that not me.. I rarely leave my wooded paradise on Lake of the Ozarks/Truman Lake area.

As far as beer goes in Missouri, St. Louis's Shafly's brewery is pretty good.

I agree with CapitolG, when I first moved here I didn't understand why people thought the food was good here. Then I found the food carts. City Grill may have a view but Pok Pok is where its at.

Regarding the beer statement. I can only shake my head. With over 40 breweries here I have a hard time believing we only have weak beer. You sure he doesn't think vodka is called "beer"?

LoadShark: As far as beer goes in Missouri, St. Louis's Shafly's brewery is pretty good.

Pretty good is kind of a understatement, they have got to have over 20 diffent brews I have tried(and loved), I felt it was heavely influenced by German brewmasters(a very Old world style).

For me the big whoop De Do about PNW beer is the hops, they are grown here!!!! the noble hops of europe took to our climate and as a result, portland has some fine brews, with reletivly unique flavors(the hops have diffrent qualties than the old word strins they initaly brought over).

My only guess is your pops came in to town and had a coors Banquet. Portland fails in a LOT of areas, but Beer, we got that coverd... as 64ozofwater said.... over 40 breweries for a city with a half million folks living there, now thats a ratio to smile on, if you cannot find a beer you like in PDX, you simply do not like beer.

You've got to be kidding?

If you ever want good food in Portland you just go to one of the bars. Sure they are often heavy on the fried and whatnot but every bar is required to serve food and it's often a cut above.

I swear the best burger I've had around here was the $2.50 special at Ash Street Saloon.

And which pizza? I'm guessing Bellagios, Old Town and there's one place in the Milwaukie area that does a great wood fired pizza but their name escapes me at the moment.

As for food here being overpriced ... you must be eating at the wrong places. Avoid the fancy places and you can eat very well for very little, most good full dinners can be had for less than $15, many times much less. And remember, all bars are required to serve food in Portland - which includes strip joints that sell booze. I've actually heard the best place to get a really good steak for not much money is the Acropolis on 99E/MLK.

/Ate at the City Grill this week for the first time, the price was cheap ($5 happy hour burger) but it wasn't all that hot.
//If you want really good Thai food head for Pad Thai Kitchen in SE on Belmont.
///For really good Teriyaki you gotta hit the suburbs, Mashiata Teriyaki in Tualatin off of Boones Ferry Rd. is excellent
