Old Town Brewing
5201 NE M L King Blvd (at NE Sumner St)
Portland, OR 97211
This brewpub's interior of dark wood furniture and paneling dotted by broken-in couches is just as welcoming and approachable as it's lineup of award-winning beers. The mainstay brews -- an IPA, a Kolsch, a red ale, and single-hop pale ale -- all sit around or under 6 percent ABV and aren't known for being too hoppy, making them all easy to drink and even easier to fall into routine with. What's even easier to love are their pizzas, all thick-crust creations with local ingredients like basil, spinach, feta, and pineapple.
