Bars in Portland Kicking Up FIFA World Cup Soccer Action

Few sporting events can generate the same amount of excitement that buzzes around the globe every four years in the run-up to World Cup Soccer, or FIFA World Cup as the rest of the world calls it. Just the same, few sports can parlay that sense of exhilaration from the field to TV, which makes watching World Cup matches at a bar equally as fun as in person. This year, the tournament kicks off on Thurs., June 12 and run through Sun., July 13. Here we present Portland's best bars for watching the games. Know of a place we missed? Give us a shout on Facebook or Twitter and let us know.

The World Cup demands respect, pride, and booze. What better way to deliver all of these and more than to build a 200-seat beer garden right on NW 21st Street?
