About 23rd Avenue Bottle Shop

As of March 17, the Bottle Shop is OPEN with spirits to lift your spirits!

Grab beer, wine, cider and spirits to go. Or call ahead and we’ll have your order ready for payment* & pick-up. Our limited-release Devils Bit Whiskey is available at the Bottle Shop while supplies last.

*Payment not available by phone. Your order will be ready for you to pop in, pay at the register and go home to enjoy!
Please, no personal growlers at this time, but we’re happy to waive the Crowler fee and fill one with the beer or cider of your choice.

 
 
800+ bottles of beer, wine, cider and McMenamins spirits
across from McMenamins Tavern & Pool!

Located on bustling Northwest 23rd Avenue, the Bottle Shop offers more than 800 bottles – rare, local and otherwise – for your choosing. Our selection includes beer, ciders, wine, sparkling wine and McMenamins spirits. Take bottles to go, or stay a while and we’ll open them onsite for you to enjoy at our tables indoors or out.

Or choose from one of our 20 rotating McMenamins' and guest beers and ciders on tap. Stay for a pint, get your growler filled, or a try a Crowler® of your choosing. We’ll pour and seal a 32-ounce Crowler to go, and it will last up to six months. A Rubinator (Ruby + Terminator), perhaps?

So stop in, have some samples, and pick up necessities for your bar or as gifts. We also offer a discount on each case of 24 McMenamins cans;  get your case of Ruby cans, Hammerhead cans, or a mix, for 10% off.

This location now has its own stamp for the McMenamins Passport, which is required for completion of the Passport.

In a hurry? A limited number of parking spaces are available next door for easy in and out shopping.

The Bottle Shop is all ages (21 and over to drink) and also allows pets while you shop and at our sidewalk seating.

Meet the "Crowlers"

It's a can...It's a growler...No, it's a Crowler®!

The Crowler® is a one-use, recyclable 32 oz. can that's filled and seamed right at the bar. As an alternative to a growler, it’s light, portable and keeps the beer fresher longer. 

We purge the cans with CO2 before filling them, so no beer-degrading oxygen is added to the beer. The Crowler® is then filled immediately. The lid is applied and sealed under pressure. A Crowler® can keep beer or cider fresh and shelf stable for up to six months. Let us know what you’d like, and we’ll fill one for you, to go! 

Crowler Prices:
McMenamins Ales $9-$13.50
Edgefield Ciders $10
Small Batch Ciders $15
Crowler Tuesdays $2 off
Guest Beer & Cider on Draft Price will vary.

History

The 23rd Avenue Bottle Shop is located across the parking lot from Tavern and Pool, in an grocery store that was a comfortable old fixture of the NW Portland community (a.k.a. Slabtown).

The shop was owned by Homer Medica (first photo taken in 1985, the second more recently) and his mother Rose, who were longtime friends of McMenamins.

In 1993, famed Portland author Ursula K. Le Guin (writer of more than 80 short stories, two collections of essays, three volumes of poetry, and 16 novels) published a photo essay book calledBlue Moon Over Thurman Street, in which she and a photographer documented all 45 blocks of people and places. As a fixture of the neighborhood, Homer was interviewed for Le Guin's book and was included in her acknowledgements. A recent book review said: "What was new or soon to be, already has faded, just a little. While the book is wistful and worried of an ugly future, the street itself abides. Old families remain. Nice new shops have opened. Houses are restored. It's still a very beautiful street and it still spans everything from industrial to commercial to rich and not so rich."

We are pleased to continue the legacy of this welcoming neighborhood joint, albeit in a slightly different fashion than Homer did. Instead of sandwiches and soda and bubblegum, McMenamins will serve up eight-hundred-plus bottled craft beers, ciders, wines and spirits, both from McMenamins and around the world.

Not only that, but the shop will feature sparkling wine, weekly cocktail specials, growler fill specials, small bites and 20 taps featuring our own beers and ciders, plus rotating guest brews. So, head to the north end of NW 23rd to get all bottled up.
