International Man of Mystery: John Lovegrove

It turns out going to 77 breweries in one day is a newsworthy feat. John's accomplishment made it to the other side of the globe when he was featured on's front page. Of course there was already the Kiwi connection. Since his appearance, traffic to the PDX: Brew City site has increased five-fold with visitors from Denmark, Hungary, Australia, Colombia, Japan, Singapore, Canada, England, Hong Kong, Germany, Indonesia, New Caledonia, and the Netherlands.

John has also been featured on Oregon LiveRedditTap Trail and a variety of other beer blogs.

This being the Internet, the comments sections have already weighed in on John's adventure:
"I spill that much on a good night out."
"Man has 77 mouthfuls of beer."
"This article should carry a health warning!"
"Omg! My bladder hurts just reading this!"
"Headline should read 'Man looks strange drinking beer out of a glass from a dolls (sic) tea set.'”
"Look at this picture long enough and you'll see a picture of a bearded guy with a tiny cup of beer!"
Well, you know what they say: "There's no such thing as bad publicity."
