Best beer-related activity or event in Portland, Oregon?

I'm heading to Portland in July (hooray!) and am already ecstatically excited about all the awesome things there are to indulge in (kind of feel like this city is where I was supposed to live - too bad I live many timezones away). The town is overrun with amazing breweries and my partner who is joining me is a massive
beer geek. We're already planning on visting as many breweries as we can and the Oregon Brewfest is on while we're there (double hooray!). However, I'd like to surprise him with the best beer related activity, event, or venue Portland has to offer (which is also acting as a consolation prize as I nixed the idea of staying at the Bed 'n' Beer in Newport).
Ideas, suggestions, advice? I know there are a lot of Portland Mefites with wonderful taste - so I'd love any help!

If it helps at all: He is a home brewer, a former beer blogger, is interested in both the tastes, techniques and politics involved in beer making and favours dark and rich beers such as imperial stouts and porters (although this may not be appropriate given that it will be summer). If it's an activity related event (like a tour or exhibition, anything that can be booked online in advance would also be great).
We won't have a car while we're there, but happy to travel via public transport to get somewhere worth it. :)
I read this
question which was posted back in 2010, but I know how the craft brewery scene has exploded in the past few years, so thought it would be okay to ask something similar.
