Staying at the Kennedy School, the Concordia Alehouse was a no-brainer. It's maybe a three minute walk from the school! Beer, then sleep. Sounds like a plan.

This place is in a sort of mini strip mall, next to a Subway sandwich shop and other establishments. Inside, it is warm and neighborhood-y, less beer-nerdy and more homey than your typical Portland beer bar. It was far from lively when I visited on a Saturday at around 10pm. Lots of empty tables, some folks playing pool, bored employees... a bit sad, almost.

As I entered, they played "Reptilia" by The Strokes, one of my favorite songs. They get major points for that!

Their tap list is alright: Old Chubb, Green Bucket Triple IPA, Weihen Hefe, StormBreaker Opacus Stout, Terminal Gravity, Laurelwood Red Elephant, Elysian Espresso Milk, Barnyard Femme Fatale, Mad River 24th Anniversary... a variety of styles and lots of locals, but with so much beer goodness in Portland, Concordia falls a bit flat. I ended up getting a Woodford bourbon (only seven bucks!).

Not a destination by any means, but OK if you're in the neighborhood.

well, apparently little has changed in the 5 years since RedMedicine visited....

the outside patio looked promising, 4-5 tables, some people enjoying some IPAs in the sun... walked in to a huge L-shaped room, high ceilings.... dive-y, college bar atmosphere.... requisite Portland bar beer swag on the walls, etc.... pinball and I think a pool table in the one corner... bartop contoured the bend of the L, plenty of stools, quite a few tables spread out in the main front room... not much thought to style....

despite the curious atmosphere, they did have what I estimated to be 120-150 bottles in wall fridges - decent selection and mix - low prices in my book ($5 for Duchesse, hmm)... bunch of local stuff, bunch of hoppy beers, Belgians... actually more or less standard beer bar stock, they just have the space to store more.... tap list was a little boring/uninspiring, excluding 10 IPAs they were having a judging contest on.... it's easy to miss gems in a sea of hops, gave it a few once-overs - still not amazed

none of the bartenders (3-ish - 1 main, 2 floater/servers) seemed too (in a sense) professional - they were preoccupied with talking to friends and regulars only (and there was no more than 7 patrons in the whole place)... had 2 beers, 2nd of which, Anchor No. 2 Mild, was poured into a dirty glass, bubbles all over.... no one came back to ask if I liked either beer or the taco

the food menu seemed standard pub grub with a few standouts.... immediately went to the a la carte tacos, fish.... that fish taco - very dry, chili spice rub was alright, could've come w sauce.... the prices overall were just above reasonable, but not exorbitant

someone local who I mentioned this place to rolled his eyes and offered that they "don't know what they want to be". Understood. There's quite a few comparable spots here in South Jersey, and I'm sure more on the way all over - (former basic local) bars looking to cash in on this brand new "micro-beer" trend.... scary to think they opened with this concept and it hasn't evolved...
