On a trip to Asheville, North Carolina, five years ago, I took a photograph of a small sign tacked to a fence in a small up-and-coming neighborhood that simply said “Breweries” in its center, with arrows radiating around it in all directions. It seemed almost more of a metaphor than the directional sign it was intended to be. I was astounded, at the time, to find six breweries in close proximity thriving in adjoining properties without conflict or apparent competition. But the same sign could now easily be installed on Portland’s Industrial Way.
