We did a pub crawl on the other side of the river. We manage to visit four different breweries. We started with 54-40 in Washougal. We next went to Doomsday Brewing Company. This one we had visited before but want to check on how they were coming along. They had expanded their food offerings and still had some nice brews on tap. Then heading into Vancouver where we first stopped off at Fortside Brewing Company and finished up with Trap Door Brewing. Best beer of the day was a port/bourbon barreled age IPA at Fortside. Best collection of beers was at Doomsday.
Big mistake on this crawl was trying to do photos with a phone. Next time I using my camera.
Current beer selection shown on boards on the wall at 54-40. 54 degree 40 minutes north longitude – The original northern boundary of the Oregon Country.
The main room was built out nicely.
A warehouse decorating with a frontier theme.
Gas fire place at 54-40. Over all a nice look to the place.
54-40 has a couple of dart boards. This area also has family dinning tables.
Nice outside seating at 54-40 but not use on the day we visited.
We did a couple of sampler at 54-40.

Doomsday still has their corner couch.
After a walk in Lacamas Park Jeanette and I tried a couple of brew pubs in the area. The first was Mill City Brew Werks in downtown Camas. We had met the Owner at a wine and beer fest in Vancouver and he made the place sound good enough to check out. Over all the place was nicely done with a clean casual atmosphere. The service was very good. We had two different stouts to drink and they were OK. We each had hamburgers and agreed they were good. So a nice place I would go back to if I was in the area.
We then drove over to Washougal to try a new little brewery. I just found out about this place so I did not know what we would find. This was Doomsday Brewery and was in a converted warehouse space. So low budget set up but a nice effort to make a fun tasting room. We went for a taster with four of their beers. Their chocolate stout and vanilla porter missed the mark but the Red and IPA we tried were excellent. So not much for food with hot dogs and slice of pizza. We were surprise they did not have some munchies you could order to help absorb the beer. So not a bad effort for a new start up brewery.
