Points South on the Coast:

Seaside Brewing Co, Seaside

A former city jail now guards kegs of Marionberry Hefe and Briny the Oyster (Oyster Porter, that is).

Public Coast Brewing Co, Cannon Beach

Named for Oregonís landmark Beach Bill, Public Coast hits the classics, from a NW Red Ale to a rosemary-zested American Pale.

De Garde, Tillamook

Specializing in world-renowned farmhouse ales fermented with wild coastal yeast, like the barrel-aged Oude Desa.

Pelican Brewing, Pacific City

The lauded veteran craft brewer (big in Australia) recently expanded to Cannon Beach and Tillamook to double its production. But itís still the small things we love: a pint of Kiwanda Cream Ale here, at Cape Kiwanda.

Rusty Truck Brewing, Lincoln City

Rusty Truckís full-service restaurant is a major warm-weather pit stop along the Central Coast, pulling pints of burly Road Wrecker IPA to match that kobe burger.

The Horn, Depoe Bay

This new public house from the owners of local chowder dive the Sea Hag promises that its own suds are soon forthcoming.

Rogue Ales, Newport

Launched (originally in Ashland) in the years following Oregonís landmark Beer Bill, the coastís OG brewer has pretty much always kept things weird. (Beard beer, anyone?)
