[#SPROTS] What Migration lacks in table service, it makes
up for in tables. With a sizable outdoor patio, the main pub and an
annex bar, there is ample, comfortable seating here. That is unless
Oregon is playing for a football championship. Then, the entire
neighborhood gathers to hoot and holler at the TV screens. Of course, if
you like sports, you probably like beer, and they have plenty of that
here, too. Migration strives for balance, from its Clem's Cream Ale
(it's smooooth) to the Old Silenus Ale, which might put hair on
your chest (well, if you are a teenage boy going through puberty—it's
still just beer). Migration is community-focused, often creating
collaborative beers with local businesses as part of its Migrator
series, and strives for a neighborhood-bar feel. Founded by two brothers
and decorated mostly with sports memorabilia, the spacious bar is a
great place to grab a beer with a group, and even play a round of darts.
They also offer happy-hour prices during Blazers and Timbers games.
Sorry, Duckies, you pay full price.
DRINK THIS: Terry's Porter, a rich, chocolatey porter with a little bit of smoky flavor, will please any dark beer lover.
