On the day at the end of June 2016 when I took my Swiss wife and daughter to the Portland airport for a three-​month visit with their family in the Old Country, af­ter I had another tasty shakshuka at Port­land’s Tasty n Sons for lunch, I con­tin­ued my Mc­Men­a­mins Passport ad­ven­ture by visiting the Mc­Men­a­mins Broad­way Pub, on the corner of NE 15th Ave­nue and Broadway in North­east Port­land’s Sul­li­van’s Gulch neigh­bor­hood.

Even though this building looks fairly new, according to Broadway Pub his­to­ry, it was opened over a quarter-century ago in 1990. Its plain exterior cam­ou­flag­es a gorgeous interior sporting lots of wood and plants, huge windows, vaulted ceil­ings, and a heat­ed second-​floor bal­co­ny patio. Somehow it feels larger on the in­side than it appears from the outside.

Because it was a beautiful summer day, I took advantage of Portland’s short sunny season and sat on the balcony rather than inside. The patio was pretty empty on a Tuesday in the early afternoon ... but that was just fine with me.

Looking over the tap list, I settled on a pint of McMenamins’ seasonal Copper Moon ale. Just the week before, I had tasted my first Copper Moon at Edgefield. At that time I had written “pretty good beer ... could be worth another try.” On my another try at the Broadway Pub, I wrote: “ yep, I like it! ”

During my half-hour stay at the Broadway Pub I took 17 pictures. The best 11 made it into this album.
