Keep your cool with a road trip to discover craft breweries at the beach.

As our Northwest summer heats up — honest, it will — a road trip to discover craft breweries is a good way to keep your cool.

The North Oregon Coast is prime territory. Stop for a five-hop Vortex IPA at Fort George Brewery in Astoria. Visit the pub in the 100-year-old city jail building at Seaside Brewing Co. Or sample Cannon Beach’s brand-new Public Coast Brewing, named to celebrate Oregon’s 1967 law making all ocean beaches public.
