Oregon's coastline is graced with unforgettable vistas: dramatic cliffs, offshore rocks and sea lions, wide sandy beaches, majestic capes, historic lighthouses, enchanted forests and lovely small beach towns which artists and artisans make their home. Along the coast we will visit the town of Astoria, the Astoria Column, Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock and enjoy spectacular views of the dramatic Oregon Coastline.
After being picked up at your downtown Portland hotel you will enjoy watching the ships pass along the Columbia River as you sample from two of the following Astoria breweries, where you can also purchase lunch.

Buoy Beer Company
Fort George Brewery

The staff at each of these breweries will be available to answer questions on the history and selected beers offered.
