PORTLAND, OREGON — This Friday March 24, The Lucky Labrador Beer Hall will have its Grand Opening. The festivities will include beer specials and live music. The Lab’s Beer Hall features the company’s second brewery furthering the notion that Portland is the beer capitol of the World with the most breweries within its metropolitan area.
The Lucky Labrador Beer Hall is located in the final frontier of inner Northwest Portland. Off to the side of the recent development of condos, doggie day cares, chic boutiques, and upscale restaurants, this pub is comfortably casual for relaxed meetings, laid-back hanging out, or relaxed groups. You can even park your bike inside. Soon to come will be an outside seating area for patrons to gather with their canine companions.
The Lucky Labrador Beer Hall is located in an old rustic warehouse with lots of wood and huge old growth timbers. The building originally was built as a Freightliner trucking warehouse. In honor of a five ton bridge crane hovering above the pub area, the brewers developed Five Ton Strong Ale. This malty, bold ale is made with Premium two-row, British crystal, and touch of chocolate malt with Nugget bittering hops, Northern Brewer flavoring hops, and "a ton" of Amarillo aroma hops. Supporting a 7.8% alcohol by volume, the Five Ton ale has a full body of malt with slight underpinnings of black currant and raisin. "Like our crane out front, this stong ale can really hoist your spirit," said the newest brewery team member Abby Sherrill.
The Lucky Labrador Beer Hall is located at 1945 NW Quimby. The newest addition to Portland’s ubiquitous brewpubs, this casual neighborhood pub features outstanding bento, sandwiches, salads and other pub fare. Ales on tap at The Lab include Superdog Ale, Hawthorne’s Best Bitter, Dog Day IPA, Organic Golden Ale, Top Dog Extra Pale and Black Lab Stout. "Paws down, it’s the tastiest beer around." The pub hours of operation are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. – midnight and Sunday, noon – 10 p.m. Minors are welcome until 9 p.m.
