Oregon ---

Population: circa 3,250,000
Widmer Brewing/BrewPub (2) - Portland
FullSail Brewing/BrewPub (2) - Hood River, Portland
Bridgeport Brewery/BrewPub - Portland
Oregon Trail Brewery/BrewPub - Corvalis
SteelHead Brewery/BrewPub - Eugene
Deschutes Brewery/BrewPub - Bend
Umpqua Brewery/BrewPub - Roseburg
Rogue Brewery/BrewPub (2) - Ashland, Newport
Portland Ale/BrewPub - Portland
McMenamins - (10) - Hillsdale, Salem, Eugene, Roadhouse, Oak Hills, Edgefield,
Lincoln City, Fulton, Highland, Murray Road.

There maybe 2 others I believe, but only counting the 22 above,
we get about 1 micro/brewpub per 147,000 residents...

If you just look at Portland metro area alone:
15 Micros/BrewPubs/1.5 million people, you get 1 micro/brewpub per 100,000
residents. People have said there are more McMenamins Pubs/Brewpubs in
the Portland area than McDonalds... (better food at least - A pint of
ale beats a BigMac anyday!!!).
