I happen to think that beer is one of the best (possibly *the* best) reason 
to live in Oregon.  Here in Eugene (pop. 180,000), I have no less than 4 
breweries (not pubs mind you, but actual microbreweries) within walking 
distance.  There were formerly 5, but sadly, one closed down.  When Fields 
was still open, I had one brewery a half-block away and another one and a 
half blocks away.  Ah, business lunches.  Each brewery has at least 5 or 6 
regular ales on tap plus seasonals and guest taps.  And I believe that each 
brewery has won at least one silver or gold medal at the Great American 
Beer Festival.

And, of course, my personal favorite thing about beer in Oregon: we hop our 
IPA's more than anyone else in the world.  Blessed be the hop-heads for we 
shall inherit the Earth (or drink it or something.  I forget.)
