The Two-Stop Method for Barbecue Essentials in Portland

Bottle Shops and Brats
by Karen Locke on Jul 22, 2014 in Roundups

One pleasant aspect of barbecuing or grilling out with friends is that you end up with a hodgepodge of beers, wine and meat. When you’re headed to a barbecue and you’ve got more time than the normal dash into Fred Meyer for hotdogs and chips, we suggest the two-stop method at these bottle shops and butchers in Portland. Grab your meat first, and then find the perfect pairing. 

Outer NE 
Pono Farm ButcherIf you’ve been hanging around the landmark Hollywood theater lately, you probably noticed the big white letters "Soul Kitchen" added to the corner of the building at 41st and NE Sandy Blvd. Pono Farm from Bend has moved some of its meat to PDX, and we're super excited about it. So now, there’s the Japanese Soul Kitchen with asian inspirations and then there’s the butcher shop next door so you can prepare cuts of their natural beef or pork for your next barbecue. (4118 NE Sandy Blvd.; 503-889-0885) 

BottlesAfter checking out the meat counter at Pono, cut through Hollywood up to the Beaumont Village neighborhood to Bottles. Mix and match bottles depending on what you think guests at the barbecue will like best and impress them with one-offs or hard-to-find sours or wheats. (5015 NE Fremont St.; 503-333-8122)

Inner NE

Tails and TrottersIn the micro restaurant complex located at NE Glisan and 24th Ave. you’ll find Tails and Trotters, the meaty marketplace best known for its Northwest hazelnut finished pork. T & T also has pancetta, bacon and sausages for your next barbecue if you can avoid filling up your stomach with one of the savory sandwiches from the counter. (525 NE 24th Ave.; 503-477-8682) 

 

Portland PairingsCross the street at the corner of 24th Ave. with a package of pancetta and the folks at Portland Pairings will find you a red wine chock full of tannin that will love your meat pairing. The owner, Jeff, has been selling wine for over 30 years, and with Pairings he’s dedicated to turning Portland’s wine geeks into pairing geniuses. (455 NE 24th Ave.; 541-531-7653)
 

Inner SE 

Olympic ProvisionsIn need of some Italian sausage or Bratwurst? Surely, Olympic Provisions is available all around town, but don’t forget about the shop where all of the artistry happens. The provisions company located in the industrial, waterfront area of SE has all of the ingredients needed to “wow” your fellow party goers, including a pâté sampler. (107 SE Washington St.; 503-954-3663)

 

Oso Market + BarFrom Olympic Provisions head to Oso Market + Bar where you can grab a bottle of wine, like a Lolo Albarino for $11, or a garnish like pickled apricots. The best part about bars and restaurants also doubling as a market is that when you get hungry you can grab a quick bite without filling up. When the hunger overpowers you, we suggest snacking on one of Oso’s fresh and colorful salads at the bar with your purchases by your side. (726 SE Grand Ave.; 503-232-6400)
