This week’s edition of Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast is a very special one. Today marks the 50th episode of our (and hopefully your) favorite podcast and in honor of this golden anniversary, we decide to pay homage to The Manual’s base of operations: the beautiful Portland, Oregon. We invited Jeff Miller, president and CEO of Travel Portland, to join our roundtable of Managing Editor Nicole Raney, Social Media Manager Jake Rossman, and host Greg Nibler.

Travel Portland is a tourism organization the helps visitors to the Rose City, whether for business or pleasure, discover the best that our community has to offer. Our Portland-based crew — Jake has lived here pretty much his whole life, Jeff for 25 years, Greg for 18, and Nicole for one — chat about some of our favorite breweries and destinations in town, as well as the intangible things that make our city one of the best in the country (dare we say world?). Tune in below for our top recommendations.

We wrap up the episode with a little Portland version of The Price Is Right! Play along and see if you can beat the champion. Spoiler alert: Of course the president and CEO of Travel Portland reigned supreme.

If you have a question for The Manual podcast team, give us a shout at podcast@themanual.com — we’re always around! Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and keep an eye out for our podcast polls so you can join the discussion. And if you’re visiting Portland any time soon, be sure to hit up Travel Portland for recommendations.
