The Cascade Brewing Barrel House on Southeast Stark Street gets all the shine, as happens when you make a kriek named best in the world by the lead wine critic for The New York Times. But all Cascade's sought-after sour beer—the strawberry and the blueberry and the cranberry and the snozberry—starts out in the kettles here, a few feet from Beaverton, before it's poured over fruit and inoculated with lactobacillus. Raccoon Lodge looks so much like a mountainside chalet you could drop it in the middle of Govy without getting a code variance. Inside, there's a homey downstairs bar and a spacious upstairs family area complete with a roaring fireplace. Unlike the minimalist brushed steel of the Barrel House, here you slide into a deep booth. Order a French dip sandwich or fish and chips, which you won't find at the Barrel House. It has a few of the famous sours, but you may be surprised to remember it also has really nice porter and an old-school raspberry wheat beer.
Drink This: I'm always partial to the Oblique Coffee Blonde Ale and the Honey Lime Ginger.
