10 A stay in Oregon isn’t complete without sampling our most famous export— craft beer. Beer has become an integral part of the Beaver State’s culture from start to finish, whether it’s growing hops, small batch brewing or sipping a cold one. Here are a few of the best-known Oregon breweries that should top your list next time you’re in town: NINKASI BREWING Heading down to Eugene?

Locally sourced, organic and Salmon-Safe hops have helped make it the first Certified B Corporation brewery in the Pacific Northwest.
