Portland Beer by Bus - The Number 35

Another Portland, Oregon bus route that can get you to many wonderful craft beer destinations is the Number 35. This is a long, long route and there may very well be a number of awesome beer serving establishments along it's shambling path that I am missing. If you know of any that need to be added, please let me know. Of course, I highly recommend checking any or all of my directions using the TriMet Trip Planner. The good folks at TriMet can provide you with all of the complicated transfers needed to get you to your exact desired location. I'm just giving you stops located on or very near single bus routes.

I recently rode the 35 from Rose Quarter Transit Center all the way down to Lake Oswego to attend a craft beer bottle sharing event with some other beer blogging folks. (Big fun.) I highly recommend taking the bus or getting a designated driver when you're out imbibing on a semi-professional level. The whole community suffers whenever a drunk turns his Family Truckster into a 4000 pound killing machine. Don't drink and drive.

The 35-Macadam/Greeley runs North/South, connecting Oregon City, Lake Oswego, South Waterfront, Portland City Center, Old Town/Chinatown, Union Station, the Rose Quarter and North Portland (University of Portland), via Highway 43, Macadam, 5th/6th, Interstate, Greeley and Willis.

Once again, please refer to the disclaimer in all of my previous bus route posts. If you're one of those sue-happy individuals, the kind of chucklehead who takes no responsibility for his/her own actions, the kind of putz who can't even ride a city bus without f**king it up, stop reading this NOW! Also, don't sue ME for your f**k up, as I am in no way responsible. I don't even know you. I make zero guarantees that you'll successfully make it home in one piece, should you ignorantly get on this bus and venture forth to these potentially dangerous, biker-filled beer halls. Buses can be scary, dangerous and are often packed with ax-wielding maniacs of extreme size and ill-tempered disposition. (That last part isn't true, but if it is, it isn't my fault.)
