About the Author

Lisa Morrison, also known as The Beer Goddess, is host and producer of “Beer O’Clock!,” the Pacific Northwest’s only weekly, hour-long commercial radio show devoted to craft beer. Lisa is a regular columnist for the nationally distributed publications Beer Advocate and Celebrator Beer News and is the first and only female contributor to “Beer Talk” in the national magazine, All About Beer.

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."

Format: Paperback
Do not expect a simple list of breweries to visit. Any local magazine, brochure or website can do that. What separates this book is the style and format. The book reads out like a story in a periodical. The venues are mentioned and some of the history and important facts are given. Since it is laid out in a reader friendly style, one can actually sit down and read this book. For example: I didn't know the Ponzi family co-founded Bridgeport Brewing (despite being a long time wine industry guy). I also didn't know that Upright brewing was named so because the building formerly used to have a jazz club where upright basses were played. These are the neat tidbits that one finds out and only helps to add to the appreciation of the venues.

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!).

This book is such an easy read for any beer lover interested in the Pacific NW! Packed with info and fun facts, this book is such a help when traveling around Oregon, Washington or British Columbia. On a recent trip, I stuffed it in my backpack and used it like a Lonely Planet. Stopping at the breweries and suggested restaurants along the way. The maps were super helpful! How nice to be able to take a pit stop in Bend, OR and realize that you can walk to four breweries within blocks of each other. Without this book, it would have taken a lot of googling and of research to plan such an efficient route. This book laid it all out for me!

Loved it. I left it in my backpack for next weekend!!!!

If you live in the Northwest or are thinking of visiting the Northwest, this book is a must for even the occasional beer drinker. Every page is brimming with interesting facts, and the maps and suggested places to visit are invaluable. Morrison obviously knows her stuff-- her expertise shows at every turn, and yet it's not "preachy." On the contrary, it's a fun read and her advice is peppered with humor and interesting trivia. We hope to see an encore presentation covering another area of the US.

Lisa Morrison's book is a resource that any craft beer drinker would want to own. Ms. Morrison knows her beer. In her book, she explains basic brewing and terminology of the craft beer world. And then she takes you on a delightful journey of the breweries and brewpubs of the Pacific Northwest, including recommended pub crawls in Portland, Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria, B.C.

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.

Love this book. Being born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, my love of beer has been a part of my culture. Priding myself on knowing where to go an when, this book has shown even me some great suggested places, and some interesting facts I didn't know about. Great book for ANY beer lover!

Format: Paperback
Although I grew up drinking northwest beers, it was mostly watery lagers. It wasn't until much later that I discovered craft brews. Now it's easy to find good beer in Oregon (especially Portland or "Beervana") and Washington, but finding them all and getting some idea about what and where you want to drink is a whole lot easier with Lisa Morrison's book. This is great for the occasional visitor looking for something to eat and drink, and the native on a beer safari. Its readable as a book and referenceable as a guide, filled with stories and details that will help you find and appreciate great places, great beers and great people who put them together.

Craft Beers of the Pacific Northwest covers all types of venues, from the leading breweries and brewpubs, as well as bistros, taverns and best retail stores for beer.

The book is well-organized by state/province with good directions to make finding places easy, even on back roads and out-of-the-way spots. Throughout the book there are also interesting sidebars and comments, interviews with brewers, notes about historic beer destinations and such, making it a good read, not just a reference book. Lisa Morrison profiles Oregon's brewing industry for CELEBRATOR Beer News, and she is also involved with several festivals, most recently PDX Beer Week. She is a beer expert and authoritative, and always fun to read.

Fresh, informative, and easy to use - this book deserves to go into many successive editions and updates!
