After six years in Europe, Beercycling is now expanding to the U.S. year in Europe. With success from their “Getting You From Pint A to Pint B” Tour in Europe, Beercycling will open a new tour in Oregon, starting May 2017.

The Oregon Beerway tour will be led by Beercycling founder, Evan Cohan, and will feature five days and four nights of cycling between Portland and Hood River. The riders will visit a couple of breweries a day, stay in hotels near the breweries and receive assistance from a support vehicle as they ride along the most scenic trails in Oregon. The tour will average about 24 miles a day and is open to cyclists of all levels.

“I am grateful that we've been Beercycling for six years now and have organized over 45 successful tours”, says Cohan. “We are proud of the service that we offer—many of the brewers we visit have become good friends—and I believe that riding a bike from town to town is the perfect means of transportation and pace to absorb one's surroundings. We get riders from all backgrounds, all ages, all genders, from locations all around the world, and get to share a common bond over beers every day of each tour. The fact that we can now offer tours in my home state, in addition to the themed tour experiences in Europe, is a dream come true.”

The tour dates for 2017 include May 26–30; June 8–12; and Sept. 1–5. Registration includes bike rentals, hotel, meals and snacks, brewery tours, vehicle support and passenger shuttle. Beercycling also has tours in Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands.

Built in the vision of streamline modernism and art deco in 1941, the Vogue Theatre has become a hotspot in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district—a region known for its progressive hospitality and historic charm. “It’s a national registered historic site in Canada,” says Matt Friesen, general manager of the theater. While it is primarily a concert venue hosting artists such as Steve Lacy and Steve Earle & The Dukes, the Vogue’s nearly 10,000 square feet of space and mission to offer the utmost friendly customer service makes it a perfect venue for your next event. 

 

WeVenture, a national tour operating company, has expanded its offerings to include four Seattle tours that immerse visitors in the city’s vibrant cultural scene. The company, which launched nationally earlier this year, has tours in 10 other U.S. cities including New York City, Miami, Denver, New Orleans, and Los Angeles. The Seattle tours can be an easy and fun add-on to any event in the Emerald City.

 

Portland International Airport (PDX) was famously known for its teal, geometrically patterned carpet, which was sadly removed back in 2015. But now, PDX will be known for its recently completed, unique timber ceiling. ZGF Architects worked closely with PDX for 50 years and designed this transformation to last another half century. The Portland airport is becoming one of the first to be seismic-resilient and produce low carbon emissions, thanks to the 9 acres of native Pacific Northwest hardwood used in building the terminal’s ceiling.
