Dulcie and Aylwin's big beer adventure last day in Portland. One of my students had told me about Laurelwood and when we found it was close to Dulcie's parents we made an effort to try it; compared with many of the Portland landmarks, it doesn't tend to come up in conversation.
The building on Sandy, again dead easy to park by and find, is quite new; it recently replaced another long-time establishment. Clean sort of pine thing inside and the brewery stuff visible behind the bar. Lots of families with kids here. TVs in evidence (not common in Portland beer places) but no sound, no grating music either.
We tried the two IPAs and the Workhorse kicked the Boss by a mile. Dulcie rated it the best Portland IPA she had had this visit. I'm not sure I would go that far but it is was very good. Prices at the right time are ridiculously low. We dined on a couple of appetizers and the bill was well under $20. It could be a great local for those living in the area - which we wished we did.
