Portland is full of breweries that serve up great beers and ciders, but sometimes those beers are hard to find. John’s Marketplace provides you with a one stop shop to beer, wine, cider, and so much more. This market has made quite the mark on Portland! We figured we were overdue for a visit at their new location.
Inside the market
John’s Marketplace doesn’t only carry local beers galore, they have beer from all around the world. The first time I walked into John’s I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Would it be just a few selections? Or would it be the same o’l stuff you find at the supermarket? Nope! There is Isle after Isle of variety. We even found frozen wine popsicles! The store is set up so that patrons can either shop for items to take home or they can have a staff member to open them to drink on site. If you don’t want to peruse the bottle selection, they have 17 taps that range from Lagers, sours, stouts, and ciders. And there is always a friendly bartender there to give out a taste if you’re not quite sure what you’re in the mood for. Take a look at the current tap list Here. If you find something on draft that they don’t offer on the shelves, they can put it in a crowler for you to take home.
Outside the market
The brains behind John’s Marketplace really thought of everything. If you’re enjoying your beer on site, you’re probably in the mood for a snack or two. John’s does offer some snacks inside if you just want a small bite but if you’re ready for more of a meal you can find; Noah Halal, Azul Taqueria, Holy Trinity BBQ, Matt & Memere, and Jojo right on site. You’ll find plenty of seating either on the back patio, or out front next to the food carts. John’s has prepped for all types of weather, so it’s the perfect hangout spot all year round.
