Portland Happy Hour: Rock Bottom Brewery

Posted by Kelly

One of the nicest things about living in the Alphabet District of Portland is being able to walk and max to happy hours all over downtown. With other friends living in NW and SW it is easy to meet up for a drink and some great food.

A friend from UP lives in SW along the park blocks so I left my car parked in the busy streets outside my apartment and went to check out her new neck of the woods. After seeing her cute apartment with a great view of the park we began our happy hour search. We ended up at Rock Bottom Brewery on the corner of SW 2nd and Morrison. We both ordered a glass of Riesling and of course a little too much food! The large soft pretzel was awesome, as were the sliders, salad, and humus plate we ordered. Their happy hour menu ranged from $3 to $5, all with generous portions. To top it all off there was live music and an energetic atmosphere on a Tuesday night.

To get home we jumped on the westbound max that conveniently stops right outside Rock Bottom's front door and were home in minutes! Love living downtown!
