Portland Beer by Bus - The Number 24

I am continuing my series of TriMet bus routes and the best beer drinking spots to be found near their various stops. This is a relatively short route, but a good one. Lot's of tasty beer to be had in a compact area. Ladies and gents, I give you the Number 24.

FYI: An all-day TriMet pass costs $5.00 and it's your best bet if you're planning on traveling by bus for most of the day. The pass is also good for the MAX (light rail) and the Portland Streetcar. There are apps for both iPhone and Android phones that give pretty good TriMet route listings and stop times. I use the PDX Transit Finder for Android.

Once again, I'm adding my disclaimer: I bear no responsibility if you're dumb enough to follow these directions without double checking the TriMet Trip Planner. Hell, I was probably more than halfway into a six pack when I posted this. If you get lost, mugged, shanghaied or eating by wolverines, it's all on you. Don't sue me.

The 24-Fremont provides service between Gateway Transit Center and Legacy Emanuel Hospital, along 102nd, Halsey, 92nd, Fremont and Williams/Vancouver. It travels in an East-West direction and back. Note that this line only runs on the weekdays, so you're out of luck if you want to do a bus/beer excursion on this route on Saturday or Sunday.
