Beers are great, but can ya hit me with a stiff drink? Four full bars stiff enough for ya?
Should I bring the kids? Oh yeah, bring the kiddos to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and matinees at the theater – It’s never too early for some popcorn and a pint!
Conversations with my cat are becoming redundant, can you entertain me? In addition to several TVs, there are pool tables, a theater, a soaking pool, outdoor firepits, and a fireside bar with sofas – make yourself at home.
Got any tips? Take a stroll with your pint and check out the artwork in this place!
Can I get some tasty beer to go? Check the tap list, bring your growler – especially on Mondays, and call ahead to order a keg!
Walk, bike, or drive? It’s downtown – walk or bike it for sure! Better yet, if you’re from out of town, spend the night in one of the really cool rooms to score a sweet spot in the parking lot.
Last one – Is there like a locals night or something? Beer tastings 2nd and last Wednesdays of the month at 5p.
Est. 2004 – St. Francis, the kingdom of pints is before you.
Be grateful for the dead: the Grateful Dead, that is. At the rear of this 2-square-block complex — a circa-1930s Catholic grade school resurrected in 2004 by the Portland-based McMenamins group — is O’Kane’s Bar, which plays exclusively music from Jerry Garcia and the Dead. Most visitors instantly find the main Bond Street restaurant, perhaps sneaking a peek into its basement, where colorfully painted brewing tanks occupy what once was a children’s nursery. The former school also includes two more outlying bars, a 19-room hotel, a movie theater, a meeting and music room, even a Turkish bath. Cheers!
