We were tipped off that parking in the area would be difficult so we parked a couple of blocks north and walked down State Street/Hwy 43. Our plan turned out to be a good one as the low building next to Lake Twin Theater had only a small sign to identify it. We could have easily driven by multiple times before we had actually found it. Inside we found our friend had arrived a few minutes before us and secured a table in a large alcove of the bar.
The first order of business was of course to order a beer. Of the 13 taps they unfortunately only had one house-brewed beer, Saison, which Mag took one for the team and ordered. He declared it very Saison-y, which I agreed with, meaning that it was most certainly not something I liked. For Saison fans, it might be just the thing. The rest of the taps offered a thoughtful selection of styles from primarily Oregon breweries.

Being in Lake Oswego it is unlikely Stickmen will become a regular haunt but I'd like to go back when they have a more of their beers available. If that isn't until summer, well then, perhaps I'll be able to find myself a seat on their patio. It snugs up to the lake and will likely be quite popular in the summer. If you're in the area stop in, have a beer, the flat bread and decide for yourself.
