Shittingly located in the old industrial area down by the river therefore necessitating lots of one-way roads to get there. Inside is a kind relief from the gloomy surroundings with an English-style decor complete with copper and porcelain taps and 2 proudly displayed copper mashtuns. Most of the beers are good or average, the German-style Uncle Otto's Hefe being a real winner. Even better than the beer though is the exceptional food, which is mostly Scottish and English style. The Scottish Pie and the BlackWatch Cream Porter Bulldog Sausage plates were absolutely amazing. Even if they didn't offer good beers to go along with the food, I would still go just for the amazing eats. The waitress was kind enough to honor my request of only bringing me 3 samples at a time in order to properly rate them. $7 for 8, 4 oz. samples. Timing was otherwise quite average and prices were reasonable considering the exceptional food. They do offer brewery tours and have an outdoor patio, but don't expect any eye candy unless looking at an old dirty factory is your thing.

Despite the name, this is not on your list of PDX beer places to check out. WAY up in NW Industrial, strangest damn location; definitely NOT the place to impress out-of-towners, though it is quite nice & warm feeling inside. Service was slow (for me - there by myself, and I felt SO out of place here). Took forever just to get noticed; as a matter of fact, I had to say "hello, here I am, ready to spend money in your establishment, yes me, right here, thank you", or something like that. If you're with a group of Dockers & loafers type of people who like to go to "beer" places to eat, then maybe you'd enjoy this. For me, however, this was a "one & done" visit. I wanted to like this place, but honestly I can only recommend it to "Leave It To Beaver" types. If you snuggle into that criterion, then give it a shot; just be sure to go with a group.

Pretty out of the way in a mega industrial park section of town. Which is odd since the place looks really nice. It's not really been very busy when I've been in. It is nice to try some of the staples from Pyramid and MacTarnahans next to each other, often they have a couple of limited release beers. But like Bridgeport brewing these are mainly grocery beers. The quality of the beer is good, but not worth heading out to the creepy industrial park next to the railroad track.
I did visit once on a trivia night and that was kind of fun. But I haven't really been back in awhile so what does that tell you?
