Like a classic work of Victorian literature, a trip to the bar often begins with an introduction to colorful characters and ends with the revelation that everyone in the room is related to each other. Continue an age-old struggle with today's Groupon to Billy's Bar in Beaverton. Guests arriving after 9 p.m. must be 21 years of age or older. Choose between the following options:
- For $16, you get a beer-tasting experience for four (a $36 total value) that includes:
- Four 4-ounce microbrew tastings (a $4.50 value each)
- Three appetizers (a $6 value each)
- For $10, you get $20 worth of anything on the menu. Entrees range from $8–$25.
Billy's Bar beckons diners with a menu of upscale pub fare and a fountain of locally made beer and wine. Drinking foursomes can imbibe 4-ounce samples of brew from the area discussing which has the best color, which pairs the best with pub fare, and which has more hops than a toddler drinking Mountain Dew. Couple mini malts with any of Billy's starters including smooth roasted garlic hummus, warming beef chili, and creamy baby mac 'n' cheese. Alternately, opt for the second deal to excavate the piping hot core of a steaming meat loaf entree ($9) or fling a pepperoni-topped gladiator pizza ($10) into a breadbasket during an impromptu frisbee-golf game with the next table over.
Guests at Billy's Bar recline amongst refurbished vintage furnishings, including a 1907 Brunswick bar, glistening chandeliers, and a refinished shuffleboard. Wood-finished archways and exposed brick further elaborate the old-style tavern atmosphere, inviting guests to linger by the roaring fireplace or venture to the outdoor patio to watch fireflies flash each other stock market forecasts in Morse code.
