The girls were 11 years old when they met in upstate NY and have remained friends since; they both have found comfort in calling Portland their home in an opportunity-rich environment to grow their businesses. “The values that make Portland an amazing place to live, love, work and grow have also provided opportunities for small local businesses to be successful. The people here love craft beer as well as living fulfilling and healthy lives, which is why this tour is so perfect for the locals!” Craft beer and healthy lifestyles are two things that overlap in the pacific northwest.
