It’s no secret that Portland loves beer. What might be more surprising is how many Oregon beers can be found at Yard House. To help spread the news, the downtown happy hour hotspot invited the Yelp Elite Squad to explore their extensive food and drink menus. It was a night not to be forgotten, no matter how many local brews were sampled!
The first stop for beer lovers was obviously the bar! Every local beer was up for grabs, and since Yard House serves over 40 made in Oregon, Yelpers had some serious decisions to make! Those that weren’t in the mood for brews had options, too! The expert bartenders crafted two signature cocktails that had the crowd talking. The Paradise Found was a fruity concoction made with rum and Aperol, while the Mayan Mule was the copper mug classic with a tequila twist!
Not to be overshadowed by the bar, the Yard House kitchen set up a bountiful buffet that was practically bottomless! The poké nachos were a crowd favorite, made with raw ahi tuna, fresh avocado, and a spicy sriracha aioli. Yelpers loved the boneless Korean wings and were impressed to learn that they could even order them vegetarian! The fried mac and cheese balls were a delicious twist on a comfort food classic, and the pork lumpia was many Yelpers’ first introduction to Filipino food. All-in-all, Yard House’s fusion cuisine was a perfect pairing to their impressive beer list.
And what’s a Yelp Event without giveaways? At the end-of-party raffle, some fortunate guests won $50 gift cards and growlers filled with their favorite beers. And every guest was invited to find Yard House general manager Cody, who gifted them with a $10 gift card to return. Want to know more about the party?
