Say you lived in Portland, and you like journal writing and you like beer. Normally you journal write while working in one of the city's wonderful coffee shops, but you were thinking - "it's the afternoon and I live in Portland - I should replace coffee with beer!" Where would you go . . .?

As an enormous fan of American craft beer visiting New York, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles, where should I go to partake of the finest brews?

It's been a while since I had either, but remembering the tastes, I think it's that I dislike the bitterness in each drink. [more inside]
