Keep Portland Weird…And Gluten-Free

For some unknown reason (is it something in the water?), Portland just seems to embody all things awesome. The best in eateries, culture, beer and music all magically appear in this city long before the trends reach the rest of the world.

Known to many as a hipper version of Vancouver (this is a compliment, not a put-down), the city is well-known for its liberal politics, amazing outdoor activities and an almost unhealthy obsession with craft beer and food carts (over 58 active breweries and 600+ food carts can be found within the city limits).

Portland is also quickly gaining a reputation as a mecca for gluten-free eaters. Named best gluten-free travel destination by The Daily Meal, Portland is home to a wide range of gluten-free eateries, grocery stores and a 100% gluten-free brewery (of course).
