Summer is upon us, and our beer garden at the Raccoon Lodge is now open! It is, of course weather permitting, so call ahead if it looks iffy. Come eat and drink at the picnic tables, we feature our regular menu in the beer garden!
We've got lots of new beers on tap, including a delicious Oblique Coffee Porter, Prefunkshon Pale, some delicious Saisons and a unique sour Barrel Aged Bruin on draft. We have two sours available in bottles right now: Sang Noir ($21) and The Vine ($17).
Every Sunday afternoon is Open Mic (when the weather is good enough to have it outside). It is open to all ages and we welcome new players. We start up around 3pm and go to about 7pm. Talk to Jake, the bartender downstairs, for more information.
We have Happy Hour throughout the restaurant Monday - Friday from 4 to 6pm and again from 9pm to close; specially priced well drinks, pints of beer and lots of food choices. Saturday and Sunday Happy Hour is only in the downstairs Den from 10am to 2pm.
We will be closed on July 4th for Independence Day - we hope you enjoy the holiday with your families and friends.
Coming up on Saturday, July 7th from 6 to 8pm, we're excited to host in our beer garden Rockin HW featuring Michael Whitaker and Alan Halvorson, performing Cowboy Poetry and Western Song. They recently came away with the 2010 Best Western Music Group Award from the Academy of Western Artists.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for the Oregon Brewers Festival held at Waterfront Park in downtown Portland July 26 to July 29.
Happy Solstice - cheers!
