|Laurelwood's Rando IPA #12, |
one of the grand opening beers
and Craft's 1st keg to kick.
Craft Pour House made their debut on the tap room scene in Beaverton last week, adding to the number of reasons to head out to the west metro. The nearly 2,000 square foot space sits on the end of a strip mall off of SW Walker and 158th Ave surrounded by abundant parking. With two of the four walls being nearly all windows the space inside is bright and filled with a combination of small and large tables to easily accommodate any size group in addition to my seating of choice, a bar facing the taps.
|Justin demonstrates the face many die hard craft beer drinkers respond with when asked "what's your favorite beer?"|
Those taps, 26 of them, are primarily filled with craft beer but also include two for wine, four for cider/mead and even one pouring cold coffee. Justin Craft, co-owner with wife Violet, knows his beer and the tap list reflects that. He also knows that many craft beer fans like to try multiple beers so there are 10 and 16oz sizes available (plus the requisite sampler tray). An added bonus is that the majority of the 10oz beers are $3.
|Food and non-alcoholic beverages|
To go along with the beer, and to allow minors to enter (currently until 5pm), there is a deli case of sandwiches, wraps and salads. As is the case with many tap rooms that don't have a kitchen, outside food is welcome. There are a variety of Asian-ish restaurants close by (Thai Cabin, Crazy Sushi Shoten, Wu's Kitchen and Best Teriyaki), a Fred Meyer across the street and what would be my eatery of choice when in the area: Popeye's. Or bring something from home...maybe a picnic to be enjoyed on one of the outside tables with your furry friend.
Whether you live/work in Beaverton or are just looking for a new place to hit some weekend (traffic can be messy during the week if you're coming from the east side as I am), Craft Pour House is definitely worth checking out.
