Was really surprised to be get in to Novare on a Saturday night - lucky for my wife and I, it was game one of the Stanley Cup and local Bostonb Bruins were playing; without any TV's, were were able to walk right in and find a seat outside very easily. The outside beer garden was really nice and we were greeted by a friendly server almost immediately. I was a bit surprised at the lack of local beers on tap - I was expecting to find more selections of local beers I could not find elsewhere but was a bit disappointed to say the least. Being from NJ I was looking forward to trying some beer from Oxbow (something I can't get at home) but they only had one offering on tap and I found it at other places in the city. Their tap and bottle list was extensive but in reading all of the great reviews, I expected more. Don't get me wrong, if you're in Portland and want to hit up a beer place with selections from all over the world, this is the place to go. My wife and I ventured inside before we left to check it out and could see why this place was so popular as there was a great vibe to the indoor bar - could definitely see myself hanging out there during the cold winter months.
