Beer and Dine in Portland’s newest taproom
There will be a new go-to place for beer aficionados in Portland and it offers a wide variety of specially crafted beer and exciting snacks to match.
Brewer Charles Porter, who’s had a hand in creating Portland’s first-ever Beer of the Year, the fresh-hop version of Logsdon’s world-beating saison, and in making the much-sought-after Peche ‘n’ Brett, will be opening a new taproom with specialty foods expert Brenda Crow in the former Hedge House Pub at 3412 S.E. Division St. on Monday.
The new beer hub, Little Beast, is a converted craftsman home filled with cozy nooks, a new walnut bar, a half-hidden beer garden rich with Portland beer history.
Their menu will include cheese and charcuterie boards, high-end tinned fish dishes, traditional steak tartare, and easy-going sandwiches “that goes well with the beers that Porter crafts,” Crow shared with Eater Portland.
The taproom will be the exclusive home to some of Little Beast’s special barrel-aged and bottle-conditioned releases.
On Monday, Porter will pour both Black Cap, a Foeder-aged ale poured over raspberries, and Golden Stone, a stone fruit brew pungent with peach, apricot and nectarine, both were brewed last year.
Look closely, and you’ll even find an IPA, a collaboration with hop whisperer Mike Hunsaker of Grains of Wrath brewing in Camas.
