Vacation in Oregon

We’ve been enjoying our time in Oregon and are heading back home tomorrow. We’ve tried some really good food and drinks while on vacation and we decided to share a few with you. On our way down we stopped at Tillamook and got a three-pack of different cheeses; one of the cheeses was a smoked black pepper cheese and the other two were garlic cheeses. Twice, we visited the Pelican Pub and Brewery in Pacific City. The first time we tried the pan-fried oysters and the scallop linguine. Colin had the MacPelican’s Scottish Style Ale and I had a tropical drink with orange vodka in it along with various juices. On our second trip I had the chicken pesto penne and Colin had the “Famous Fish and Chips.” Colin couldn’t resist trying a beer with a name like the Tsunami Stout, and I had a lemon drop. While in Lincoln City we visited McMenamin’s Pub and Brewery. We sampled the Communication Breakdown burger (with BACON) and their bleu cheese burger. Colin had the Hammerhead Ale and shared a sampler of their 6 sampler beers including the Terminator Stout and the Ruby Ale, which were our favorites. We went up to the Rogue Brewery in Newport, Oregon for a day trip. We walked through and went up to their restaurant where besides having delicious food (fish & chips, chili and popcorn shrimp) we also tried some of their beers. I had a pint of the Mom’s Hefeweizen and Colin had a pint of the Dry Hop Red Ale along with a sampler consisting of Irish Lager, Mogul Madness, John John Juniper and Triple Jump Pale. The John John Juniper had an aftertaste like a tree. They all tasted very fresh. We also started our meal there with a taster of the Honey Orange Wheat beer, which was refreshing.
