According to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, humans cannot attain self-actualization without first tending to such basic physiological needs as water, sleep, and brisket. Achieve overall fulfillment with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pub fare and draft pours at Birra Deli in Tualatin.
Birra Deli's friendly staff pours specialty draft beer and serves heaping wraps and sandwiches in the laid-back eatery. Select a brimming 20-ounce imperial pint from a seasonal menu of rare drafts, which, like a slow-motion contra dance, may rotate daily. Options may include Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat ($5), Reel Ales' aromatic Swordfish Double CDA ($9), and Southern Tier Crème Brûlée Stout ($9), which blends dark caramel malt, vanilla bean, and kettle hops into a sweet potion without the mess of homemade beer milkshakes. Soak up suds with a bite from Birra's well-portioned menu items, such as a thick Reuben sandwich ($5.99) or a light Mediterranean tuna sandwich sprinkled with capers, extra-virgin olive oil, and balsamic vinaigrette ($6.49 for 6"; $7.99 for 9"). Breadless options include a pepperoni-ranch pizzadilla ($9.99) or a chili-cheese fritos wrap on a warm tortilla ($5.99).
Birra's laid-back interior glows with neon beer signs, arcade games, and a flat-screen television as guests nosh and sip atop comfy emotionally and physically supportive barroom stools.
Barkeeps dispense 21 rotating drafts and pour out more than 500 microbrews and imported beers at Birra Pub, which derives its name from the Italian word for beer. Soups, salads, and hot and cold sandwiches concocted from local ingredients complement each hop- or malt-heavy libation. Amid a colorful interior of neon beer signs, arcade games, and a flat-screen television, the Pub hosts regular beer tastings where customers can win unique prizes, such as cryogenic freezing chambers that keep beers chilled for up to 100 years. In addition to brews in the eatery, visitors can bring home sudsy treats in bottles, cases, or kegs in a variety of brands and sizes.
