Of course Portland has a Grateful Dead-themed sports bar and brewery, pizzeria and wing stop. Where else would that work? Oh, right, Denver—which is where Fire on the Mountain opened an outpost a few years back. With always-packed bars frying up Portland's best-loved wings as fast as they can pluck 'em, in a 12-deep and mostly consistent array of sauces from mild to extra spicy, the company set out to chase the dream of total vertical integration at its large space on Fremont Street. Fire on the Mountain's brewers do their own classics well: X-tinguisher is a great wing beer while the Electric Mud chocolate oatmeal stout is a mild and sessionable pint that recalls a souped-up Guinness.
