Hop in the Saddle Separate a Portlander from their bike and their beer any you have: a tourist.

Bikes and beer are not only important to the economic health of Portland, they our the city's heartbeat. For some, even spirituality. Separate a Portlander from their bike and their beer any you have: a tourist.

Hop in the Saddle hopes to be the definitive two-wheeled guide to Portland's craft beer scene. The proposed authors of the book have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to turn their dream into a printed reality. As of this posting, they are short only $1318 of their $15000 goal with only seven days to go! To make a contribution (even as little as $1!), head over to their campaign page and check out the details on their project.

From the Kickstarter campaign page: Our guidebook unites two of Portland’s greatest passions: craft beer and bicycles. It doesn't get more Portland than this. Hop in the Saddle links the best PDX beer spots with the city’s first-class cycling boulevards and bike-friendly streets. We've included all the quirky bike charm and bubbling personality that makes Portland a world-class beer and bike city. Instead of ho-hum ale trail standbys, we've picked the spots that have defined a craft brew movement. Think innovative beers, seriously great food and ambiance that won't quit. Our routes and words are beautifully brought to life by Portland designer Laura Cary. This is one book you'll be proud to throw down on the bar.
