The St. Johns Ale Trail was created to support the local craft beer scene in the St. Johns & Cathedral Park neighborhoods in North Portland, and to encourage tourism in this part of town. Started by a group of community members, this program is housed within the St. Johns Center for Opportunity, a local community development nonprofit.
How it Works:
The St. Johns Ale Trail features 10 locations in the community. Interested in participating? You can grab a FREE passport at any of the participating locations. You'll receive one stamp on your passport per location visited (with purchase of a beverage at that location). Once your passport is filled up, turn it in at any of the participating businesses and receive a commemorative St. Johns Ale Trail pint glass along with other swag.

St. Johns Center for Opportunity:
