14 Portland Restaurants With Brilliant Beer Lists

The city’s best brew-oriented eateries

View as Map

This map is for those who want both great food and a solid beer list, ideally with high quality or rare beer options — and also those who don’t want to commit to only drinking one brewery’s beer at a brewpub.

While Portland has many excellent brewpubs and breweries, dining at a restaurant with a great beer selection also tends to mean there’s reasonable access to a wine list and full bar — something not all breweries offer. Beer bars, where food comes from a separate vendor (like a food cart or neighboring restaurant) are excluded from this list, along with brewpubs.

Note that the points on this map are not ranked — they’re organized geographically.

1. Lardo

(503) 241-2490
Visit Website

Portland’s pre-eminent sandwich constructor offers more than a dozen multi-napkin sandwiches at their two locations, (in the inner SE Hawthorne area and the Portland West location downtown). Find a tap list of at least a dozen beers, featuring mostly Northwest beers; about half are IPAs but also some light and dark styles, to balance those hearty sandwiches. The Portland East location offers a big covered patio and more draft taps, but the Portland West location also connects to sister pasta restaurant Grassa and brother craft beer bar Beer O’Clock, which boasts another 30 taps.

Higgins is a classic Portland institution, championing Pacific Northwest cuisine and farm-to-table for some 24 years, all led by James Beard Award recipient chef/owner Greg Higgins. Their dozen taps lean towards Northwest beer, but also feature some Belgian selections. Don’t be intimidated by the impressive list of almost 100 bottles from around the world — there’s a cicerone (a beer sommelier, more or less) on staff to assist. Choose from the more fine dining atmosphere in the main dining room, or more casual side bar for lunch or dinner.

The spatzle is the dish to order and comes in five versions, along with other drinking-friendly food options like bacon cheese fries with smoked cheddar and beer sauce, or the O’Brien grilled corned beef sandwich.

Totally in the right place.
