This was one of the places I was looking most forward to visiting while in Portland and it did not disappoint a bit, the owner is a very nice guy and has a great thing going there, we walked in and sat at the bar, place is black and white, simple and very clean, great beer drinker atmosphere with a lot of knowldegable patrons and people who appreciate the craft experience, lots of regulars by the looks of things, people seemed to be on a name by name basis, we ordered a sampler of five beers for seven dollars, really cool to see a beer bar doing sampling like this, usually only brewpubs offer this luxury, pretty awesome that I had never heard of any of the beers, and only one of the five breweries they came from, they had twenty taps and they were all local or quality American crafts, the least appealing thing on the draft menu that day was Lagunitas Correction Ale and even that is pretty cool, this place had a great bottle list and some of the best prices I have ever seen on them, some of the highlights were Cascade Vine and Sang Royal, Alaskan Barleyine, various Jolly Pumpkins, Adam, Fred, Doggie Claws, Saint Somewhere Lectio Divina and Saison Athene, Midnight Sun Arctic Devil, Green Flash Le Freak, and Stone Vertical Epic 080808, literally fifteen minutes before I was going to call MSUBulldog25, a Portland BA to see if he wanted to meet up with us, I hear a guy talking about reviewing beers sitting next to me, after a while I turned to him and asked him if he was on BA and he said yeah my name is Brian and screen name is MSUBulldog25, crazy coincidence running into the one guy we were going to meet while in the city, this craft beer world truly is small, now I know why he spoke highly of this place, it truly is great, him being the Beerfly guide for Oregon and saying this place is one of the best should say enough by itself, glad we got to meet him briefly at least, I really enjoyed the hour we spent here and wanted to stay for another sampler but Drake looked spent for the day, so we were on our way, this place is a great spot for BAs and to top it off there was empty bottles of rare beer lining the entire window space, saw things like Cable Car and some Westvleteren in there, enough to make beer geeks like us drool, added to the coolness of this spot, I will go here every single time I am in Portland, I highly recommend this joint

Very friendly folks, prices were dirt cheap compared to what I'm used to (I live in Oklahoma), nice little outdoor seating with great people watching. Was impressed with the outstanding local selection and the bottles. This place was one of the highlights of my recent vacation to the Northwest, and I will return.

It's kind of a quirky place--no food, no table service, just tap after tap of the freshest local brews. Nice people, friendly vibe, maybe just a tad too antiseptic (I think that the lights are too bright?). You just can't beat their selection--amazing, comprehensive, eclectic and served by a knowledgeable staff. One of my favorite places to drink beer in the world.
