Too often overlooked on the list of the city's best beer bars, Hilda Stevens' comfy spot isn't exclusively Belgian, but it is exceedingly well-curated, especially among the Belgian side of Oregon offerings such as those from Pfriem, Upright and the Commons. If it's on tap here, it's good. And chances are, if it's on the food menu here, it's good, too. Notwithstanding crock-pot dinners from former Wildwood chef Paul Kasten, the bar has a warm-hearted menu of Old World comforts from stoemp to "drunken pig sausage" and a habit of hosting monthly Trappist ale tastings that are cheaper than you might find at the supermarket—if you could ever get Westie at all. Favorite recent beer on tap, though? A super funky-ass pale from To-Ol in Belgium, called F#$k Art, this is Architecture. Well, isn't everything?
Happy hour: 3-7 pm and 10 pm-close Monday-Saturday, all day Sunday. Cheap food, $1 off select drinks.
Entertainment: More and more, this is a soccer bar. Watch Timbers and U.S. national games here.
