Not having done a survey of Portland boozeries, it's tough to say.
However, I can say that we* definitely favor quality. Google for
"microbrewery capital of the world" and see the first link. In many
restaurants, instead of a wine list, you get handed a comparably-sized
"beer list", many of which are brewed on site. In fact, there is at
least one pub (I can't recall the name) which charges a premium for
Budweiser and friends on the grounds that it's a "bad beer tax".
* Living in London, I guess I can't say "we" anymore :(
