With some of the best chefs in the country cooking up sandwiches, high-class comfort food, and street food-inspired bites at Feast Portland , one might forget that there were drinks to be had as well. But a town with such a great cocktail, beer, wine, and coffee scene couldn't keep its drinks out of the spotlight for long.

At Feast, a brewery collaborated with an outdoor gear store for a uniquely-Portlandia combination, and bartenders showed off groundbreaking techniques for getting more and better flavor out of liqueurs, and others used eccentric plants to trick the tastebuds.
