Portland, Oregon -- the brewpub capital of the world -- first earned its reputation for beer in the 1980s. When Oregon repealed Prohibition-era laws banning brewpubs (restaurants with on-site breweries), it enabled Portland pioneers with a taste for beer to use the city as their home base for opening small, commercial beermaking enterprises known as microbreweries.

Fast forward 30 years and the city has more than 70 brewpubs and microbreweries, as it continues to lead the world of craft beer.

With so many options, it's hard to choose which Portland brewing establishments to visit. We've narrowed down the list to seven, each offering something special for your taste buds. Let the brewery hopping commence.
