Our Beer Philosophy
The draft beers that we serve at Altabira are primarily chosen from local, small scale producers. Each brew master has demonstrated a personal style that challenges and delights the palate while complimenting our dishes. You can taste their craftsmanship in each glass.
pFriem Family Brewers – Pilsner
Hood River, OR | 4.9% | 38 IBUs | 16 oz 5
pFriem Pilsner has the aroma of fresh grass and flowers and honey – crisp, snappy, floral hops with a touch of lemon zest.
Double Mountain Brewery – Dry-Hopped Pale Ale
Hood River, OR | 6.0% | 55 IBUs | 16 oz 5
A golden-hued pale ale that features a beautifully hoppy aroma and a flavor-appetizingly dry, clean and pure taste.
The Commons Brewery – Urban Farmhouse Ale
Portland, OR | 5.3% | 32 IBUs | 16 oz 6
A floral nose and a soft underlying hop bitterness with a crisp finish.
Oakshire Brewing – Amber Ale
Eugene, OR | 5.4% | 35 IBUs | 16 oz 5
A clean and malty aroma with a whiff of citrus. Biscuit and caramel flavors dominate but are kept in check with light citrus and sometimes grassy top notes.
Two Kilts Brewing Company – Scottish Ale
Sherwood, OR | 6.5% | 15 IBUs | 16 oz 6
Rich and medium-bodied with amber hues and note of caramel and toffee. Lightly-hopped with a malty-sweet aroma, subtly smoky undertones highlight the finish.
Ninkasi Brewing Company – Believer Double Red Ale
Eugene, OR | 6.9% ABV | 60 IBUs | 16 oz 7
Believer balances a rich malt complexity with a plentiful hop presence. Notes of caramel, toffy, fig, and date ease into earthy and floral hops, making this Double Red-Ale incredibly drinkable and full-flavored.
Zoiglhaus Brewing Company – Zoiglator-Dopplebock
Portland, OR | 7.9% | 23 IBUs | 16 oz 6
This Dopplebock has a deep, rich malt flavor, which shows off the Munich and Pilsner malts used in the brewing process. Perfect for this season.
Vertigo Brewing-Honey Nut Brown Ale
Hillsboro, OR | 7.1% | 27 IBUs | 16 oz 7
The Nose is coffee and chocolate with sweet malts. It has a full-bodied mouth feel with notes of caramel, toffee, and toasted grains, balanced with a slight hop profile.
Culmination Brewing – Phaedrus IPA
Portland, OR | 6.5% | 50 IBUs | 16 oz 6
A new-school take on IPA that is bright and fresh. Citra and Mosaic hops give off bursts of tropical fruity flavors and aromas. Perfectly balanced with just enough sweetness to convince you to enjoy yet another glass.
Sunriver Brewing Company – Vicious Mosquito IPA
Bend, OR | 7% | 70 IBUs | 16 oz 5
Really a magnificent beer. Simcoe hops in your face, with a creamy finish—bitter, piney, citrusy, balanced. Perfect.
Pints Brewing – Seismic IPA
Portland, OR | 6.2% | 75 IBUs | 16 oz 7
Fruity, orange-citrus, aroma that leaps out of the glass. Drinking a pint of Seismic IPA will make whomever you’re with infinitely more interesting.
Founders Brewing Company – Centennial IPA
Grand Rapids, MI | ABV 7.2% | 65 IBUs | 16 oz 7
Some nice citrus accents from the dry hopping – sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones marry with the hop character for a finish that never turns too bitter.
Alpine Beer Company – Pure Hoppiness Double IPA
Alpine, CA | 8% | 60 IBUs | 16 oz 7
We watch for this one because it only comes around once per year. Cutting-edge hop bite, full-bodied—an absurd amount of dry hopping, but good all-around balance with pine notes that are dominated by sweet citrus.
Feckin Irish Brewing Company Irish Oatmeal Porter – Nitro
Oregon City, OR | 5.8% ABV | 32 IBUs | 16 oz 6
Feckin uses pounds of Bob’s Red Mill Irish Steel Cut Oatmeal to round out this great tasting porter. A perfect beer and food match. It’s almost breakfast!
Bull Run Cider – Creekside Cranberry Perry – GF
Forest Grove, OR | 5.5% | 12 oz 7
This semi-sweet perry is made from organic pears, finished with a touch of cranberry. The mellow sweetness of the pears is balanced by tart cranberry. Made in partnership with Mt. Hood Organic Farms.
Portland Cider Company – Kinda Dry Apple Cider – GF
Clackamas, OR | 6.5% | 12 oz 6
Blended in the spirit of a traditional English cider – dry, lightly carbonated, with very subtle apple flavors, and a lingering fresh finish. Portland Cider Company uses fresh pressed juice from a blend of NW grown culinary apples such as Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Gala, and Golden Delicious.
