Since cheetah shoes don't yet exist, and a tree stump with a saddle on it is hopelessly immobile, bicycles remain the best way to tour a city. See and sample some of the area's finest brews in spirited three-wheeled fashion with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a three-hour Pedicab Brewery Experience (a $65 value) from Pdx Pedicab. Experiences take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
Riding comfortably in one of Pdx’s three-wheeled carriages during the Pdx Pedicab Brewery Experience, barley enthusiasts are drawn to three of Portland’s finest breweries, spending up to an hour at each location and sampling its alcoholic wares. At the Rogue brewery, you’ll taste nationally respected beer fresh from its source, including the brewery’s popular Dead Guy Ale and the Hazelnut Brown Nectar. You’ll also hit Deschutes Brewery, home to the caramel-tinged Inversion IPA, the chocolaty Obsidian Stout and Deschutes, the friendly dragon that cries beer tears when his tummy is rubbed. Furthermore, you’ll also drop by Bridgeport Brewery to invite holly-jolly taste buds to sample the seasonal Ebenezer Ale. Along the way, you’ll learn about the history of each hops-laden shrine and gain valuable insight into the intricate beer-making process.
Pdx Pedicab is one of Portland’s premier pedicab companies, providing cab, tour, and special-event services in the downtown and Pearl District corridors. Each bright orange, pedal-powered rickshaw is operated by a friendly pedicabbie who can transport two to three humans or 17 clowns at a time. Each pedicab is equipped with a collapsible canopy that protects riders from sun, rain, and malicious flying-squirrel attacks.
Stalwart cyclists pedal through Portland's historic streets, towing colorful chariots with up to three passengers seated snugly on their padded benches. Pdx Pedicab's drivers take participants on guided experiences of local breweries, such as Bridgeport, Tugboat, and Rogue, during jaunts through Distillery Row, the East Side, and the Pearl District. They also venture out to wine cellars during voyages throughout the southeast part of the city. They make stops at each selected establishment, where passengers sip samples and purchase additional drinks to recover from joining obligatory fire-breathing competitions. Drivers also conduct cycle-powered experiences starting from the west bank of the Willamette River to explore the city's eclectic culture and some of its stranger landmarks. Each eco-friendly, emissions-free pedicab is open-air, allowing riders to feel summer or autumnal winds in their hair during excursions.
