Market of Choice and Hair of the Dog Collaboration | Our Favs

We love to partner with local makers, especially when we get to bring you something new. In this video, you’ll learn about our new Market-made Bratwurst, handcrafted with Portland’s own Hair of the Dog beer and Zenner’s sausage. These fully cooked brats feature Lila Country Lager, which is light and clean and only brewed once a year as an homage to the mother of Hair of the Dog founder Alan Sprints. Lila and Bierweek, a lightly smoked lager by Hair of the Dog, can both be found at your Market Beer Shop, while supplies last! Watch the video.

Winter Wine | Our Favs

What’s better than wine? Wine and chocolate! Ask one of our experienced wine stewards to help you find the perfect bottle to go with your favorite chocolate. If you’re a milk chocolate lover, we recommend something on the sweeter side, like a Brachetto or a medium-bodied red, like an Oregon Pinot Noir. To avoid dark chocolate making your wine taste bitter, try a sweet Port or an adventurous Italian Barolo Chinato. If you’re in a hurry and need a cold bottle, we have bottle chillers in store.
