Portland Oregon breweries and more on the Guinness Book of World Records

A couple of news tidbits:

The Toronto Star has an article on the breweries of Portland, Oregon. I always wanted to visit Powell’s Books, a giant bookstore, but this article would give beer lovers another reason to want to trek there.

A while back I spoke of the Guinness Book of World Records and how it came to be. This article from the New York Times Book section talks about, among other things, the original edition of the book, its contents, etc. Not really beer related, but interesting. You do get to read about the onetime world champion wine drinker.
