    I love Newport! I used to visit a few times a year when I lived in Albany. We visited all the places you mentioned minus the beer tasting (I wasn’t of age at the time). Have you found agates on Agate Beach before?

      I’m not as familiar with Newport. As a kid we always went to Rockaway and Tillamook, and then as an adult I usually went to Lincoln City or Seaside. Newport was a nice change. Nope, never found an agate on the beach there before.

    Newport looks very relaxing!

    Yesterday was my husband’s 39th birthday & he got 39 beers. He was quite happy with it! Just an idea that I thought might work for you in the future!

      That is a really cute idea! What kind of beers did he get?

    I love Newport! my grandparents, aunt and uncle lived there, so I spent many holidays, spring breaks and weekends there. Rogue is definitely a must visit, and the front street where you saw the sea lions is one of my favorite places… I could spend a whole afternoon walking around there.

    Did you know there is a Rogue in town? In the Pearl, on NW 13th + Flanders. my friend Mikey works there, if you ever go in tell him “Krismas Snow” says hi. 😉 yeah… old name from way back. if you liked the beers and food the Portland Rogue is a fun place.

      Awesome! I did not know there was Rogue here. I will check it out!

    That sounds like such a nice weekend! I don’t do a lot on the beach because of how easily I can burn, even with sunscreen. I used to love camping, though, and we would build a driftwood fire on the beach at night. Fun times 😀

      I saw some bonfires on the beach Saturday night and I REALLY wanted to do that! Next time.

    Thanks for the shout out – glad to see you could make a stop at our Brewery and Headquarters in Newport. Look forward to having you at one of our locations again soon ( Rock n Rogue!

      Thanks for commenting! I will most definitely be checking out your other pubs. I hear there is one in the Pearl District and I want to try that soon. Good job on the beers.

        There are a few in Portland including
        The Green Dragon
        928 SE 9th Ave.
        Portland, OR 97214

        We haven’t been in but we went to the BBQ street fest out in the street by it last summer and drank their beer. Super fun!

        1. Lisa Eirene

          That’s right across the street from the Cascade Brew pub. I’ll have to check it out.
