About the Author
Lisa was chosen as one of the three original recipients — and the first female recipient — of the national Beer Journalism Awards, presented by the Brewers Association, for a column she wrote about the benefits and traditions of serving beer instead of wine at the Thanksgiving table.
When she is not writing or talking about beer, Lisa and her husband, Mark, enjoy traveling with their Samoyed dog, Yeti — if for no other reason than to be reminded that there's "no better beer than here."
More About the Author
Lisa is a regular columnist for nationally distributed publications including Beer Advocate, Beer Connoisseur and Celebrator Beer News. She is the first and only female contributor to "Beer Talk" in the national magazine, All About Beer. She also writes for regional publications and has many articles about beer featured in non-beer-related publications as well. In 2004, she was chosen as one of the three original recipients -- and the first female recipient -- of the national Beer Journalism Awards, presented by the Brewers Association.
Lisa also is the executive director of Barley's Angels, a nonprofit organization focused on helping women learn more about craft beer and brewing so they can chart their own course of beer discovery.
When she is not writing or talking about beer, Lisa and her husband, Mark, enjoy beer exploring in the Northwest and other regions with their Samoyed dog, Yeti.

Morrison never really spends a lot of time focusing on the beers each place produces. Partly I believe this is so that the reader is not pre-disposed to any of the beers at one particular venue. She might mention a few to try or to look for, but it is never stated in a: Go to Brewery A, drink Beer B, play song C on jukebox, go to next brewery.
She also includes some local bars with a variety of taps or bottled beers. Since she mentioned both APEX and Beer Mongers, she has gained my trust. I did find it odd that there was no mention of John's Market (biggest beer selection in Oregon - but purely retail so maybe that is why...).
There are many fun pictures, all black and white, but they show some of the venues, signs, or other fun photographic subjects. There are several maps included as well. I also smiled at some of the 'off the radar' venues listed, such as Beircafe in Tualatin (right down the road from me!) and some of the spots in Seaside/Canon Beach (the one in the outlet mall amuses and intrigues me!).Read more ›
Loved it. I left it in my backpack for next weekend!!!!
For visitors to the Pacific Northwest as well as locals, I recommend that you get a copy of this book and keep it in your car. Next time you want a really good Northwest craft beer, you will know in which direction to head.
The book is a highly interesting, informative (and at times educational) guide to beer drinking in the NW USA (and Canada) featuring guides to each area, background info on the pubs, beers and breweries as well as useful pub crawls and maps. I will be definitely taking the book with me on my next trip and putting it to good use.
Recommended for any one into beer tourism!
