Portland Named One of the 11 Greatest Foodie Cities In America
Tuesday, September 02, 2014
But it wasn't really for our food. It was more for our beer, and maybe our coffee. In tagging Portland as one of "The 11 Greatest Foodie Cities In America" Suzy Strutner of The Huffington Post stated the following in their travel section: "While beer doesn't exactly qualify a city as "foodie," this is America's best beer city, so we're all in. Artsy microbrews abound -- dive into the tasting room at Hair of the Dog, or try the Black Strap Stout at BridgePort Brewing. End one of many bike-and-beer tours at Hopworks BikeBar, where drafts are served on wheels and pedaling generates electricity. Portland's food situation is also "embarrassingly" amazing, with down-to-earth twists on uppity foods like foie gras, house-cured meats and salted caramels in the town's many restaurants and pop-in shops. Oh, and don't even get us started on the espresso at Stumptown."
Milwaukee, New Haven, San Diego, New Orleans, and Providence also earned the honor of great foodie cities.
