For an imported selection of Belgian beers, you’re pretty much limited to only three good options in Portland: Bazi Bierbrasserie, the new La Moule, and the often-overlooked The Abbey Bar & Bottle Shop on NW 21st. The Abbey has by far the best Belgian bottle selection (300+) and is celebrating its 2nd anniversary this Saturday, March 12th, but plans to relocate to a larger space on NW 23rd between Raleigh and Savier by the end of April.
The new location for The Abbey Bar & Bottleshop is 1650 NW 23rd, right next to the Lompoc Tavern and two doors down from St. Jack. The new space is the former home of Twist frozen yogurt and coffee bar. It’s about 50% more space than The Abbey Bar currently has and will allow for more beer, but not a complete kitchen.
