I had the opportunity to photograph two hot spots in Portland; Loyal Legion & Taylor Railworks. They are both situated in inner SE and beckon for Portlanders to try their tasty eats and wonderful drink options.
Let’s start with Loyal Legion, an awesome beer hall. After my photo shoot (lucky for me it ended on a Friday evening), I had my husband meet me so that we could try this beer mecca out ourselves. I really enjoyed myself. All of the bartenders were super chill and very nice (and no, it wasn’t because I was there for Portland Monthly). It was fun to talk about all the different beers they had on tap, 99 to be exact, and even more fun to create my own beer sampling menu. Their beer sample menu allows you to try 1-99 beers, all your choice. So you can try out some of the “different” taps. For instance, I tried a Hi-Wheel Blackberry Habanero and a Twisted Whisker Scottish Porter Stout. My husband tried the burger, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I tried the pretzel (yum!) and a kale salad. For the price, I was thinking I was getting a tiny side salad, but that was not the case. Great bang for your buck. Speaking of buck, bring the paper version, Loyal Legion only accepts cash and their prices include gratuity.
Check out the story from Portland Monthly and visit Loyal Legion to get your drink on! Cheers.
I have to admit, I was not able to try Taylor Railworks food or drinks… but I can speak about what I saw and what I saw looked damn good! (Hardest part of being a photographer- trying not to drool on the food.)
Taylor Railworks is a sexy restaurant that I think would be perfect for a night out with your significant other. I could tell you the two items I photographed, but I don’t want you to be disappointed as their menu options change frequently. (Which I love- who wants the same menu all the time?) I would suggest checking out their current menu which seriously sounds beyond delicious. Call the babysitter and head out for a wonderful meal.
