Portland is home base for all kinds of breweries, from old school brewmasters to popular ale houses to freshman aficionados. It got us thinking: If Portland is where beer goes to school, we never want to graduate. This zine is your guide to the most interesting kids on campus.

Aja Gabel is a writer living in Portland, Oregon. She frequently enjoys locally brewed pale ales, but will drink a good stout if the mood strikes. She's lived in California, Connecticut, Virginia, Texas and Massachusetts, but prefers Portland — partly because none of those other places have zine guidebooks. Aja has published short stories and essays and is at work on a novel in which beer also makes a meaningful cameo. www.ajagabel.com
Leo Zarosinski is an Illustrator in Portland, Oregon. He will draw on anything for inspiration, but mostly he uses paper. www.leozarosinski.com
