"Oregon Breweries by Brian Yaeger has 416 pages chock-full of all kinds of useful information about 190 breweries and taprooms. It's like an Audubon Society Field Guide for BEER! Imagine being able to spot the elusive Hair of the Dog, or get up close and personal with the breathtaking Deschutes! All you need is this amazing book...and maybe a pith helmet."

"Even for the long-time resident it can be difficult to navigate the dense Oregon brewery landscape. Brian Yaeger is the beer Sherpa we've been waiting for to guide us from the coast to the mountains, through the cities and small towns."

"Brian Yaeger takes us on the most amazing beercation through Oregon, bringing us up close with the characters who contribute to Beervana's unprecedented beer culture. You can armchair travel and enjoy each spot, but this book will entice you to visit so you can drink it all in for yourself!"
- D.J. Paul
"Oregon Breweries is a fantastic read that delves into more than just the beers...Yaeger writes a narrative that tells a story that is unique to each profiled brewery."
- Joel Gorthy
"Yaeger has crafted what almost certainly is the most thorough guide to Oregon breweries ever published. He details 190 breweries and brewpubs across the state--and yes, he visited nearly all of them--with brief, well-written narratives that tell the story of each operation. His profiles reveal many nuggets of knowledge to be savored by even the most well-versed Oregon hop head, and accompany plenty of practical information for planning a visit to any of the sites: beers brewed, visiting/tasting hours, food options, and in most cases an author's pick for a must-taste standout beer."
- James Helmsworth
"Oregon Breweries [is]a straight-ahead guide with listings on each and every brewery in Oregon from local beer writer Brian Yaeger...It's full of detailed information about Oregon beer--who makes it, where to get it, and what it tastes like. Yaeger deserves kudos for putting this last element in...accessible terms, relating them to molasses and brown sugar (Arch Rock's State of Jefferson Porter), for example, or Juicy Fruit (Pints' Tripel Whammy)...The real draw of Oregon Breweries, however, is that by providing so much background on breweries, Yaeger offers a fascinating view of the state."
