Over the past few years, eating and drinking outside has been taken to a whole different level in downtown Portland. Summer is short in the northeast, so we have to take advantage of it while we can. So it makes total sense for one of Portland's most popular foodie destinations to team with one of the local breweries to create a unique outdoor beer garden.

According to Portland Food Map, DuckFat and Oxbow Brewing have collaborated to open an outdoor beer garden serving some of the amazing Oxbow beer offerings plus a deliciously decadent menu from DuckFat. That menu will include BBQ pork belly and a lobster hot dog. Yes, a lobster hot dog!

The beer garden is located on Washington Ave across from Silly's and next to Coffee By Design. Renovations were done to the entrance of the Oxbow tasting room to make the outdoor space more functional. The beer garden will be open Wednesday through Sunday 6pm-10pm.
