One of the more barren beer areas of Portland is in North Portland. Yes, there are some great, sought after spots but there are many blocks in between establishments in this part of Portland. Located only a few blocks north of the University of Portland and only a block away from Twilight Room, ChillNFill is the new growler shop and beer bar that features 29 rotating taps of craft beer, wine and cider.
ChillNFill was started by Paul Moglia and Steve Cooper when the duo decided a year ago that they wanted to get into business doing something they loved, not just something that paid the bills.
“When it comes down to it, all we really want to do is serve craft beverages to people,” said Moglia.
Cooper added, “We saw a need around here for a business like ours – and we’re excited about working with local craft brewers.” Working is exactly what they’ve been doing over the last few months; for example, Cooper built everything in the bar except the chairs. “We didn’t really have much of a summer,” said Moglia, “but we feel like the work we put into this will be worth it.”
They’ve created a comfortable, relaxed place where people can try a lot of different craft beverages and go home with a growler or two. “The name ChillNFill says a lot about what we want people to experience when they come here,” said Cooper.
Moglia and Cooper want ChillNFill to be a positive part of the North Portland neighborhood. “We’re here to serve great craft beverages to the community,” Cooper said. “And have them try some things they’ve never had before,” added Moglia.
On Thursday this week, ChillNFill will feature a Fish Tale Ales tasting. This will take place at the shop from 6:00 to 8:00pm and feature Spire Mountain Cider and Leavenworth Oktoberfest.
