Beer Guide 2014: Base Camp

beerguide_web-3

Base camp

930 SE Oak St., 764-9152, basecampbrewingco.com. Noon-9pm Sunday-Wednesday, 11 pm-midnight Thursday-Saturday.

Base Camp Brewing fits right in with neighbors like Next Adventure, Portland Rock Gym, Rack Attack, and Andy and Bax. A rock-climbing video is projected onto one wall, and the others are adorned with photographs fit for Outside magazine. Cute touches like carabiner coat hangers and s’more roasting kits ($3.50) balance out hanging kegs of water suspended by climbing ropes. It’s not all rugged, though: An iPad system allows you to order loaded shawarma fries from Gonzo food cart outside. Food is delivered to your table, so you can leave your puffy coat on the carabiners. If you do go outside, sit at one of four tables by the fire and put that s’more kit to use. Or opt for the S’more Stout, served with a toasted marshmallow on the rim. Other beers, like an oatmeal pale and a rye Pilsner, aim for drinkability and largely deliver. LYLA ROWEN.

DRINK THIS: S’more Stout comes with a freshly torched marshmallow garnish. It tastes like a standard stout with a strong, sweet chocolaty aftertaste.
