Portal Brewing and Caldera Brewery (Pacific Coast Highway Roadtrip)

After Crater Lake National Park, we made our way home. Just slightly north of the California/Oregon border, home was a mere 6 hours away and we were determined to make it back before the end of the day.

Of course we made some beer stops on the way down highway 5.

First stop on our last day in Oregon: Portal Brewing.
Address: 100 E 6th St, Medford, OR 97501

The beer was pretty good, but the food menu didn't have anything I wanted at the time. I would rate the beer here 3/6. See: http://hikerrific.blogspot.com/2016/07/willys-beer-ranking-system.html

Second Stop that we made: Caldera Brewery.
Address: 590 Clover Ln Ashland, OR 97520

Caldera Brewery has a combination of good beer and food. The service is on point as well. Truly a wonderful selection to choose from and many interesting chocolate stouts to sample. I give this place 5/6.
