American Bartender of the Year

”Morgenthaler… can claim some responsibility for several American drinks trends, particularly the barrel-aging of cocktails. Several of his drinks are among Portland's best-known cocktails, including the Barrel-Aged Negroni and Bourbon Renewal at downtown Portland's Clyde Common”

The Worlds Best Negroni Sipping Spots

Clyde Common, Portland, Oregon
”In Jeffrey Morgenthaler’s fiefdom, barrel-aged Negronis are still a mainstay: He mixes up the basic ingredients then stores them for two months in a bourbon whiskey cask”

Thrillist - Best Bartenders in America

“Basically invent barrel-aged cocktails? Been there, done that. Get everyone into bottled, carbonated cocktails? Old news. Now, Jeffrey Morgenthaler is all about reviving questionable '80s cocktails. His amaretto sours are downright desirable, which is a grand feat because those things never are.”

Forbes: The World’s Best Bar

“And that’s refreshing news, having bars in other cities conquer key categories—including “Best American Restaurant Bar” (Portland’s Clyde Common)”.

Clyde Common has been the home of Portland’s most famous bartender, Jeffrey Morgenthaler, since 2008, and the program continues to be the main draw for this sprawling, two-story gastropub.

One of the groundbreakers in Portland’s ever-evolving (and accolade-receiving) bar and restaurant scene, Clyde Common has thoroughly impressed us ever since it opened in 2007. And with its signature blend of European-influence and quintessentially American tavern touches, it continues to create something truly unique. Lest you think Clyde Common is only a trendsetter in the Pacific Northwest, oh no, it has been credited with creating several restaurant and bar trends that have gone global, and once such example is the gem that is the communal dining space… The food is fresh, local, and many of the meats are even prepared in-house. Naturally, it’s the cocktails that have had us excited all these years, as Clyde Common is serving up simple stunners and is even the birthplace of the barrel-aging phenomenon… In short, come to Clyde Common today to see what bars back home will be doing tomorrow.
