If there's one thing everyone can agree on, it's that Seattle sucks (obviously!)... and that Oregon brewers make some of America's most essential beers.

Weighing factors such as performances on RateBeer and BeerAdvocate, beer competition medals, and other accolades, the formula declared these 10 suds slingers to be the finest in all of Oregon.
