The Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail Pairs Perfectly With Summer Weather
Each summer Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory is the perfect place to create memories hiking forested trails, discovering historical locations, and paddling lakes and rivers. And what is the best way to relax after these adventures? How about with a cold beverage? The new Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail is here to guide you on your craft-drink tasting tour – from one-of-a-kind craft breweries to on-farm cideries to award-winning distilleries, and even an inventive hard citrus drink.
The Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail is a free mobile passport that connects the region's breweries, cideries, and distilleries. Use the pass to "check-in" when you arrive at each participating location, plus Tap Trail users can redeem special deals. Each check-in or redemption will earn you points, which you can redeem in the pass for prizes along your journey. And as if that weren't enough, each check-in and redemption will also count as one entry for the grand prize: a two-night stay on Mt. Hood. The winner will be selected in January 2024.
Perfect Locations No Matter Where Your Adventure Takes You
Along with new pass functionality and new prizes, there are also quite a few new stops along the Tap Trail.
● Adventure: Explore family-owned Willamette Valley farms filled with animals and produce. This adventure pairs perfectly with: Cowcohol from TMK Creamery & Distillery. The folks at TMK are so dedicated to a zero-waste cheesemaking process that they’ve found a way to turn their whey byproduct into a deliciously smooth vodka-like spirit. Visit their on-farm distillery, taste the vodka and delicious cheese, and meet the cowlebrities that make it all possible.
● Adventure: A guided hike with Mt. Hood Outfitters on the Salmon River Trail. This adventure pairs perfectly with: A beverage on the patio at Mt. Hood Brewing Co. There are few things better than a post-adventure beer, and Mt. Hood Brewing in Government Camp is located in the perfect spot to unwind after your alpine fun. Refuel after a day of exploring Mt. Hood with an amazing selection of food and beverages. Bonus: They offer a dog menu for your four-legged friends.
● Adventure: Create a work of art at CeramiCafe Art Lounge in Happy Valley, where you can create your own souvenir. This adventure pairs perfectly with: A stop into Portland Cider Co.’s newly remodeled Clackamas location. The taproom and restaurant feature 18 taps of Portland Cider specialties and even cider cocktails. The full brewpub menu serves lunch and dinner that are handcrafted using the freshest local ingredients.
● Adventure: Learn about Sandy’s logging history at the Sandy Historical Society. This adventure pairs perfectly with: Hard citrus from Ruzzo’s Retreat. We’re sure you’ve heard of hard cider and hard seltzer. But what about something in between? Ruzzo’s hard citrus uses fermented lemon or lime juice and flavors it with botanicals and fruits. Explore what Ruzzo is all about at their Damascus headquarters or pick up to-go cans at many locations around the state.
