Ugh, Relish Gastropub doesn't even have relish on the menu at all, so it's probably not even worth reading on about their stacks of steaming smoked meats, phalanx of beer taps, and whiskey collection big enough to drown an extremely thankful army..
Still here? Excellent choice. You're looking at "The Blue Room", one of three distinct spaces they've carved into a converted Sellwood house
Beer's taken pretty seriously here, with 20+ taps pouring suds like Walking Man's Barefoot Brown (aka Bobby on the beach), Elysian's The Wise ESB, Lost Coast's Tangerine Wheat, and Ninkasi's Oatis Oatmeal Stout
There's an ever-growing selection of whiskey and Scotch, plus specialty cocktails like this Joe's Shift Drink w/ Bulleit & Maraska Maraschino liqueur, and the Bloody Success w/ egg white, blood orange vodka, and cinnamon.
Animal worship includes these fennel-y pork meatballs, a pork belly-/ gruyere-topped burger, thin-sliced bavette steak, and smoked pork shoulder with butter beans, not that he'd ever eat anywhere this healthy
And during the daily 3-5p "social hour", you can score $3-$5 bites like blue cheese/ potato croquettes, plus discounts on drinks and a daily $6 specialty cocktail like this marg w/ fresh-squeezed lime juice, enough to make your relish-loving friends that stopped reading already green with envy.
