The backyard barbecue lives large at this North Portland brewery, where hop-erific beers like the Copacetic IPA flow from eight taps and sausages sizzle underneath the tented front patio. Ah, the smell of endless summer.

1216 SE Division St; 503-273-9227

With 50 different kegs of micros and imports cluttering up the back (not to mention more than 100 bottles), this beer lover’s paradise doesn’t have room for a kitchen of its own. So park your shorts in the big beer garden out front and order up some cilantro-heavy fare from Los Gorditos taco truck parked next door. Did we mention they have 50 beers on tap?

939 SE Belmont St; 503-265-8603


If the sour beers seem too avant-garde for you, Cascade’s minimalist roll-top garage space, which spills out onto Belmont in the summer, will still feel quite comfortable. And with 16 rotating taps inside, Cascade’s cozy patch of umbrellas and green picnic tables provides a snug place to expand your beer horizons—or stick to your favorite styles.

Hidden in plain sight on NE Glisan, Migration is an underrated gem in the microbrew scene. And that’s good news for you: play hooky from work on a hot day and your boss is unlikely to find you on the sidewalk patio enjoying an outstanding MPA (Migration Pale Ale).—Martin Patail
