Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail Guides You On A Craft Drink Journey

Coin Toss Brewing beer lineup of seven glasses from pale, to amber, to red, to very dark on taproom bar

Oregon has become renowned for its makers culture, and Mt. Hood Territory has been at the forefront of this wave. In the past few years we’ve gone from having a small handful of breweries to well over a dozen breweries and several cideries and distilleries. Yeah, this is the place for people who enjoy sampling a good handcrafted drink.

Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail logo in black & whiteThe only struggle is: Where to start? If you find yourself paralyzed by choices, then download our Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail mobile passport at The free passport will help show you some of the best breweries Mt. Hood Territory has to offer. The best part, that passport also grants you discounts at each of the participating businesses. And did we mention it's free?

Sample some history-themed beers at Coin Toss Brewing in Oregon City. Then head across the road to sample Shattered Oak Brewing at The Hive Taphouse. There you can try some German-inspired creations while having a taste of Philly at The Perky Pantry food cart. 

If you’re in the Wilsonville area, let our passport guide you to Vanguard Brewing where you can enjoy a traditional pilsner or IPA, or try a special collaboration beer, the Piper's Moon, made with Moonstruck Chocolate. 

For someone who’s more in to cider, try Portland Cider Co. in Clackamas. They have a fantastic selection of creations ranging from sweet to dry, perfect for any palate. Plus they pair well with their delicious dining selections, including one of the best grilled cheeses ever tasted.  12 Bridge Ciderworks in Oregon City combines their locally sourced juices, spices and all natural ingredients to create some wonderful ciders that are as unique as they are delicious. And they’re located next to a number of restaurants that will deliver to you as you enjoy your craft creations. Or visit Stone Circle Cider outside Estacada at their scenic tasting room and farm.

To really get in the spirit of things, head over to Trail Distilling located on Highway 213 as you travel south from Oregon City. Their Trillium Gin or First City Vodka are outstanding creations that put the art in artisanal spirits. Enjoyed solo or as part of an expertly created cocktail, these spirits from the first distillery since Prohibition in the first city west of the Rockies are second to none. Speaking of cocktails, 503 Distilling in Oregon City specializes in cocktails, whether you sample them on tap at their tasting room, or grab a canned cocktail to go for your next adventure.

In addition to discounts and discovering amazing new craft drinks, there's another perk to the passport. If you redeem a discount at ten of the participating businesses, you can get a Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail stainless steel pint glass. Enjoy your new favorite beer, cider or cocktail in style as you bask in the warmth of knowing you found some awesome places and saved money doing it. 

If you'd like to hit more than one spot a day, we suggest booking a tour through one of our limo companies: Aspen Limo Tours, Twilite Limousine Tours or Northwest Limousine and Town Car. You'll get to each spot safely, and in style. Hey, we like to help.
