It's a well-known fact Portlanders get downright teary eyed over a perfectly poured pint. I'd imagine most of those hop-heads would have the same reaction standing in the glow of Bottles' (5015 NE Fremont St., 287-7022, humming rows of stacked coolers. Whether you're looking for imported stouts, local lagers or specialty fare—there's even soda from the Insane Clown Posse-approved Faygo—Bottles has got you covered. And while the selection doesn't quite measure up to that of like-minded crosstown beer market Belmont Station, Bottles distinguishes itself with later hours, a big patio and some very sloppy, delicious barbecue—for $10 one can gorge oneself on six gigantic ribs and potato salad; we paired ours with Timmermans strawberry beer and Two Rivers huckleberry hard cider, which tastes kind of like Big Red soda.
