More beer cafe than bar, PDX Taproom, which opened in November of 2015, is the perfect place for an afternoon pint while you ponder the popularity of artisanal beer. PDX’s recipe for success? Portland. The taproom exclusively serves Oregon beers on all 10 of its taps. PDX might be part of Tokyo’s recent, strange infatuation with Portland, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a place as cozy as this offering a better selection of the Pacific Northwest’s characteristically hoppy ales.
