Portland's Bars Best

Did anyone see the segment on the news proclaiming that DRAFT magazine has chosen 5 of Portland's bars are among the best in the country?

I missed all the names, but Henry's 12th Street, Green Dragon and Belmont Station were in there. Anyone know the other 2?

I think Green Dragon was purchased by or is in the process of being purchased by Rogue.

Didn't I also read recently that several of Oregon's micro-brews were selected as some of the best in the world?

I know that Rogue consistently wins awards in international competition. Probably other microwbrews do too!

Yep, Green Dragon (which is a fun spot) is in the process of being sold.
