    Hi All,
    I will be arriving in Portland very late on a Saturday night (midnight) and am certain I will be thirsty. Is there anyplace open on the later side. Will be staying in the Irvington neighborhood and should have a car.
    Thanks

    I prefer the above mentioned places, but Concordia Ale House is open until 230 as well.

    EastBurn is another option, though I agree that APEX, Horse Brass or Roscoe's are better options.

    +1 to this. Plus, as of this afternoon, the Horse Brass had pliny (elder) and Molten Lava on tap. Mmmm....

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Looking forward to all the best Portland has to offer. Any suggestions on the latest and best local IPA's?

    RPM and Hop Venom from Boneyard. (not local per se, but from Oregon)

    Love those Boneyards that flexabull suggested. For locals, look for Laurelwood Workhorse, Alameda Yellow Wolf or El Torero (neither get great BA reviews but I really like both) and, if you find it, Breakside Barberhop Quartet (not yet listed on BA).

    Also from Bend, I was pretty much blown away by the Imperial Mosaic from Crux. Last I checked, it's still on at Saraveza and Apex.

    Local enough for me (and OP). Our trip is in a few weeks (June 1) and it really helps to know what to look for. When looking at tap lists we will have an advantage.


    Thank you all!

    BeerMongers has it on tap (at least they did yesterday) too.

    Speaking of mosaic, Beermongers had pFriem Mosaic APA on tonight and that's a damned good one too.

    We replaced the Crux Mosaic with the pFriem Mosaic, which will still be pouring at opening tomorrow.. but I don't expect it to last the night (~5 growlers + many pints already). After that probably Barley Browns WFO IPA.

    I like the Shocks of Sheba IPA that they brew/serve at the Fire on the Mountain local mini chain (buffalo wings place). They're open until midnight in 2 of the 3 locations...

    hotel monaco at washington and sw 5th ave.

    i don't mind walking or taking the light rail but so far looks like all the suggestions (apex, horse brass) are about 30-40 mins walk away.

    Yep, Bailey's Taproom is your best bet for beer bar (but they don't serve food - go across the street for grub at Santeria; they'll deliver). As stated earlier, open til midnight and about 4 blocks from your hotel.

    If you want to stay up even later, go across 5th from the Monaco and hit Kelly's Olympian - neon, motorcycles, live music, pretty dive-y... but equally awesome! Decent beer list of locals and some macros and open til 2am.

    thanks for the advice! got in and was starving, so having santeria deliver from across the street was great, and Baliey's was a great bar. In Brooklyn a place that good would be mobbed wall to wall and it'd probably be about $8 for a 12oz of the 20oz pours that Bailey's had for $4.50. super in love wiith Portland already!

    Also this is for late night spots but when you wake up on east coast time, there's no line at Voodoo at 6:45am

    Bailey's is actually uncomfortably mobbed most of the time, but at nearly midnight in downtown on a Monday, most people have gone home.
