Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Mt. Tabor Brewing Company has opened at 3600 NW 119th St., in Vancouver’s Felida neighborhood. Mt. Tabor Brewing has been in operation since 2011, and last September, owner Eric Surface established a barebones taproom in Southeast Portland. The Vancouver location is more elaborate, serving not only its craft beers but a full food menu with wood-fired pizzas.
The online menu reveals signature pies and small plates. Think roasted carrots with hazelnuts and chevre and "Mt. Tabor Mac and Cheese," with smoked provolone, aged cheddar, Powell Butte Pale bechamel, garlic, and buttered bread crumbs.
Mt. Tabor Brewing’s pizzas come in 13- and 18-inch versions, for between $17 and $29 for the most part. The toppings feature some house-made meats—as well as some pretty creative options. The "Surrender" pizza, for instance, comes with duck confit, local mushrooms, chevre, arugula, citrus, toasted pine nuts, and parsnip puree.
The New School Beer blog reports Mt. Tabor Brewing has a new head brewery, Rodney Stryker, who is still putting his style on the brews, from saisons to IPAs, but note the brewing portion of the Vancouver location is still getting up and running. Mt. Tabor Brewing is now open Sunday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, from 11 p.m. and 11 p.m.
