It’s hard to stand out – as a beer – in Portland, Oregon. A pillar of the city’s culture is its beer. You discover Portland by sipping your way through – your taste buds tickled by the variety, consistency, creativity, found within the city borders. Bets are that anything you have is going to be good.
Seattle, one of the fastest growing US cities, is a mixture of business, wilderness, food, music, coffee, and – of course – beer. Its tenants include everyone from your pink-haired neighbor that works at a boutique featuring solely local arts and crafts, to the posh fashionista that is able to strut her stuff at Nordstrom corporate, to the plaid-donning Amazonian, who types code all week with the goal of treating himself to a trip into the mountains come the weekend. There is something here for everyone, which is why so many people, cut from so many cloths, have found their way to the Emerald City. Seattle, at its core, is an explosion of culture, curiosity and adventure that has encouraged locals to continue sink their roots in deeper. It’s also encouraged transplants to plant new ones.

Lakewood, New York, is by no means a bustling metropolis.
In all honesty, I have never been to this village – yes, village, you heard me correctly – which sits at the very southwestern tip of the state. Because I haven’t experienced the place first-hand, I took it upon myself to do a bit of research on Lakewood, and the following is what I know to be true.
