Bar Guide 2014: Tin Bucket


Tin Bucket

3520 N Williams Ave., 477-7689. 2-10 pm Monday-Thursday, noon-11 pm Friday-Saturday, noon-10 pm Sunday.

Tin Bucket, a bottle shop, taproom and growler-filling station, is a gleaming monument to Oregon brewing. A bank of coolers holds a respectable range of bottles, but the taps that are the stars. The row of proprietary pressurizing nozzles, which fill both pints and growlers, are spread across a long counter, each looking more like a spaceship’s stasis chamber than a standard row of tap handles. Tin Bucket’s pourers spend most of their time hovering around the clear chambers, which seem to run slowly. It’s hypnotic to watch, so have a pint while you wait. The payoff? Once pressurized, these growlers will stay as fresh as a bottle or can. The 40-tap selection featured a wide array of styles—a steal at $5 to $7 for 32-ounce pours, considering bombers 10 ounces lighter cost at least that much. JORDAN GREEN.
