Specializes in German Beer and German Styles
The following pubs specialize in German beers and German styles.
Straightforward off-the-beaten-path simple taproom right next to the brewery, which specializes in German styles. Standards are Kölsch, Alt, and Hefeweizen, sold widely around town in cans; draught-only selections expand to Pils, Dunkel, a delicious seasonal Festbier, Kellerbier, and whatever else the brewers decide to make, but always in a Germany beer style. In August 2016, the Occidental Wursthaus was opened across the parking lot in a 2nd floor location: good hearty German food and a full range of Occidental's beers.
Sibling to Stammtisch in Kerns, this is where you go for German beer and Eckkneipe atmosphere, but don't expect any local brews. Simple German pub food and full liquor bar for those so inclined is also on offer, but there's another kind of treat out back in the form of one of Portland's food-cart pods, and the bar's management is okay with customers ordering from any of them and enjoying on-premises with a beer. Update: The cart pod and Prost! are now under the same ownership. Plans are in the works to make the pub and food carts a more integrated experience.
One of two local beer venues that feature only German (or Austrian) beers on tap, just like its Seattle and Portland sister pubs in the Prost! group. No local beers generally, but really good German-inspired food and imported beers in good condition more than make up for this. Outdoor seating and wide open windows and doors in good weather, a classic "Eckkneipe" in the urban German tradition.
Imagine a hybrid of a dive-ish bar like Roscoe's with a German corner Kneipe and you'll have some idea of what to encounter here. Beers are a mix of German imports and locally brewed German-influenced styles.
Roomy pub with a mix of German food and American pub eats; house-brewed American craft and German-inspired beers on tap. Family friendly and huge, with room for as many as 200 guests.
