Hopworks Urban Breweryâs new BikeBar (3947 N Williams St., 287-6258), aptly located along one of NoPoâs 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 doorâgive âem a spin to generate electricity for the barâs eco-friendly building. Christian Ettingerâs excellent lineup of organic brews tastes just as good surrounded by folks rocking cycling shorts and pannier bags as it does in HUBâs more spacious Powell location. Sip a stein of caramel-y Crosstown Pale Ale ($4.50) with an order of HUBâs addictive foot-long chewy pretzels ($3.75) on the big back patio and youâve got yourself a
little piece of two-wheeled heaven.
