A Well-Deserved Trivia Night Spotlight

For our next BOTM, we are going West to Portland, Oregon.

Actually, about 15 minutes further West to Malone’s Ale House in Beaverton, OR, but why quibble over 11.4 miles?

The very first thing you’ll notice when you walk into Malone’s Ale House is the pool tables.  They tend to be pretty popular, and there may be a long wait on Mondays, when it’s free.  (That’s also Trivia night – stop in and say hi to Robin!)

Take another step inside and you’ll see the plethora of televisions, most of which are tuned to local sports teams, and all important national games.  (Go Ducks!)

Unfortunately, the games of beer-iffically named local Class A minor league baseball team, the Hillsboro Hops, are not televised.  You can catch those on local radio AM 620.

The next thing you’ll see is the smiles – on the faces of bar staff and the customers.  Walk up to the bar, and you’ll see 20 amazing beers on tap, and a full menu.

You’ll also notice the bowls of peanuts at each table.  They are complementary, and you are encouraged to toss the shells on the floor as you eat.  You’ll want to take a second and ask your server why they do this.  (And don’t worry – they are swept up daily!)

In addition to Trivia Mondays, Malone’s offers karaoke 4 nights a week, a great outdoor porch (heated in the winter), and occasional live music and comedy.  (Check their facebook page for more details.)

One patron describes Malone’s as “A loud a bar where you let yourself go … you are expected to drink, relax, let your troubles go.”

Let your troubles go, and stop in to Malone’s.
