I woke up this morning to the happy news that CNN has given my home town, Portland, Oregon, top marks in its ranking of the "8 Best Beer Towns in America."
Now I haven't actually resided in Portland for nearly five years now, but my love of finely crafted ale endures. I now live in London, a city also known for its affinity for real ale. Despite my best efforts, I still have not come around to the flat, slightly warm English ale. They're fine. Don't get me wrong. They just are not as good as what I was spoiled with in Portland.
A proud day for me and my home town. Congratulations Portland! I miss you.
