Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping, “Liquor is quicker, but get me a single malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I’m the English president!” Be like Ol’ Winnie with today’s Groupon to The Bitter End Pub Choose from the following options:
- For $8, you get $16 worth of pub fare and drinks.
- For $9, you get a New Year’s Eve special, consisting of one pitcher (up to an $18 value) and an order of cheesy garlic fries (a $6.50 value; up to a $24.50 total value). This option is only valid on New Year’s Eve.

The Bitter End pours local microbrews to quench thirsty diners working through casual pub fare from their menu. Their lineup of drafts stands 21-deep and fetes a wealth of local breweries such as Full Sail, Deschutes, and Double Mountain. After releasing their grip on malty microbrews, fingers keep busy working through platters of mini corn dogs ($5.50), creamy jalapeño poppers ($6), and a pound of buffalo wings ($8). Stomachs seeking a challenge can conquer the Ridiculous burger ($9), boasting double meat, double cheese, and bacon, entrapped only by a sturdy bun and its sense of modesty. On New Year’s Eve, revelers can send off 2011 with a handshake lined with cheesy garlic fries and condensation from a full pitcher of beer.
Between quaffs and bites, bargoers can test their wits and dexterity against friends in bar sports on a pair of pool tables or a free-play foosball table. Eight high-def TVs draw attention, cheers, and misdirected requests for peanuts during live sporting events, and a jukebox pumps tunes from 100 CDs. The bar’s proximity to Jeld-Wen Field has made it a haven for Timbers soccer fans, a fact noted in a New York Times article that tossed a callout to the pub.
