Jonathan’s story in 2005 about how he and Sara Stout hauled two 180lb kegs across town was one of the first big draws for site traffic from around the country for what was then a very young blog.

It’s no longer quite such an unusual sight to see a party’s worth of beer, or all sorts of other unlikely cargo, being hauled around town by bike. Portland’s come a long way!

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
