Upscale in Portland

I would highly recommend Higgins. The knowledgeable wait staff and the quality and care that goes into its preparations seems to be just what you're looking for. I've had some extraordinary meals here.

Hard to find beer?

Your dad is most definitely talking about Abyss by Deschutes. It is now selling on ebay and Craig's List for $41 a bottle. It is a truly magnificent stout if you can manage to get your hands on any. Markets here in Oregon sold out -- we're waiting for our local publicans to start pouring the draft version.

Holiday Beer Cheer 2007

By far my favorite winter seasonal is Samiclaus. I buy a quantity and lay some down every year. This year I opened a 1987 and, wow, did it hold up. No sign of oxidation and quite a smooth drink.

Are there any bottled conditioned US beers?

Hair of the Dog Adam, Fred and Rose are all bottle conditioned and wonderfully tasty brews.
