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!
