Because our airport has been ranked number 1 IN THE NATION four times in a row from 2013 to 2016, and that might have something with the plentiful locations where you can get a good local microbrew. Get a taste of Rogue’s and Laurelwood’s finest IPA’s or try a new whiskey at the House Spirits location.
Another thing that makes PDX so great for shopping for local merch? The Port of Portland guarantees that the prices of all goods sold in the airport are not inflated from city prices. So don’t worry about over-spending on your own Pendleton blanket or a Columbia Sportswear raincoat.
