I'd stopped off in Pendleton, OR a time or two in the past, but had forgotten what an eye-candy downtown they have there. All turn of the century (20th) buildings, with thriving local, one-of-a-kind businesses. There's also the factory store for the best wool shirts and blankets, the Round-Up in September, and a nice little brewery. The Prodigal Son Brewery occupies a 1915-vintage building on Court Street in the downtown area.
The beers are tasty. I tried Afternoon Delight, which they style an ISA or India Session Ale. 5.3% abv, 56 IBUs, certainly sessionable as the current phrase has it. The pub food with my pint was a Scotch Egg, a hard-boiled pickled egg done up in a pork sausage blanket with some veggies on the side.
