I believe I have a knack for spotting breweries. It’s like I’m a living brewery locator app. I often find myself driving down the road and out of the corner of my eye I see “brew”, which is just enough to catch my attention. I whip the car around, find myself a parking space and discover a new beer. It’s divine.
While driving through Newberg Oregon I was running late. I had planned on eating dinner on the Oregon Coast but was delayed due to Friday night traffic in Portland. Yeah I know who in their right mind tries to drive through Portland at 5pm on a Friday. After being stuck in traffic for 2 hours I was starving and knew I was not going to make it to the coast for dinner. As I started to contemplate what to do I saw a sandwich board on the side of the road that said “Brewery” with an arrow pointing to a building. I immediately pulled in and found Chehalem Valley Brewing.
