Twice this year, in February and May, I made short stops in the southeastern Portland neighborhood of Lents, originally its own separate town, about six miles from downtown Portland.

The main reason I wanted to stop in Lents was to check out the Zoiglhaus German Brewery & Pub, which opened in September 2015, a block north of Foster Road on SE 92nd Avenue.

This restaurant is just a short 200-yard walk from the Lents Town Center / Southeast Foster Road MAX Station.

The first time I went to Zoiglhaus I had a good German meal and one of their beers, brewed on site. The second time I refreshed myself with another one of their beers at a sidewalk table on a lovely evening in early May.

One of the attractions I didn’t want to miss in Lents was the famous (for Portland, anyway) Belmont Goats, only a block away from Zoiglhaus.

Victims of gentrification, the herd found a temporary home in Lents after being kicked out of Goat Field in Portland’s Central Eastside.

I took 49 photos in Lents; the best 17 are presented in this album.

The photos in this album were taken with the  Olympus OM-D E-M5  camera.
