My wife “Half Pint” and I had talked about doing something like this–welcoming visitors with a bed’n’beer–for years. We’ve beer-tripped throughout the entire country. Cheap motels or expensive hotels have a way of marring otherwise great beercations. By converting our detached apartment into a “hopartment,” we can provide an ideal home base for people looking to discover what makes Portland ‘Beervana.’
Inn Beervana is located in the Hawthorne District of Southeast Portland, walking distance from many of the destinations beer (and cider) lovers have high atop their bucket lists such as the world-famous Horse Brass Pub, Belmont Station bottle shop and the adjoining Biercafe, as well as myriad tap houses, restaurants, quintessential food cart pods, and parks. The McMenamin Bros. brewpub and theater that anchors the neighborhood, the Bagdad Café, is two blocks away. Downtown is only 15-20 minutes away by bus or bike with two bus lines almost out the front door.
Half Pint, with a degree in art and design, hand painted the giant hop mural adorning the apartment’s entire western wall. Guests enter through a private garden area that they’re free to enjoy and relax after returning with one of the supplied growlers (64 or 32 oz.) with a newly-discovered favorite elixir.
