Hopworks Urban Brewery’s new BikeBar (3947 N Williams St., 287-6258), aptly located along one of NoPo’s main bicycle arteries, is less a bar and more a museum of bikes and brew. A rainbow of bicycle frames from the Oregon Bike Constructors Association hang suspended above the bar like metal hunting trophies, while a wall in the dining room displays row upon row of HUB bottles; a pair of highly hyped stationary bikes flank the front door—give ’em a spin to generate electricity for the bar’s eco-friendly building. Christian Ettinger’s excellent lineup of organic brews tastes just as good surrounded by folks rocking cycling shorts and pannier bags as it does in HUB’s more spacious Powell location. Sip a stein of caramel-y Crosstown Pale Ale ($4.50) with an order of HUB’s addictive foot-long chewy pretzels ($3.75) on the big back patio and you’ve got yourself a
little piece of two-wheeled heaven.
