I was really excited when I heard this place was going to open up in SE Portland, and so far, it's really lived up to my expectations. The eco-sustainable design, construction, and business practices were probably the first things that caught my attention when I heard they were opening, and I think they did a great job seeing that these priorities were implemented in the finished product. The beers are great, especially if you're into plenty of NW hops in your ales and lagers. The space is large, and very attractively designed, utilizing a lot of reclaimed wood and recycled/re-purposed bike parts. The food is definitely above average for pub grub. The service is always friendly, but not always knowledgeable when it comes to the beers, which bothers me a bit when I'm at a brewpub. Still, anyone who knows a thing or two about beer, shouldn't need any help from their server to navigate the taplist, as Hopworks usually sticks to pretty straightforward traditional styles.

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is ride my bike to Hopworks during some of the great outdoor events that they host. I've attended the 2008 fresh hop festival, and the 2009 bike-to-beer-fest here, and it's always a really great time. The brewery really bends over backwards to make sure that the events live up to even the highest of expectations, and large appreciative crowds flood the property as a result.

Great beer, great atmosphere, great events, and a unique experience, even in a city overflowing with brew pubs.

This was stop #17 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here early on a Saturday morning to try their beers as a kick-off to our Saturday version of our pub-crawl. The pub is situated in a storefront of a multi-story, modern building that looks like it has apartments above the brewery. The interior has a bicycling theme, and there is a long bar with some bar tables and stools that are separated from the larger dining area.

We ordered a flight of 10 beers out of the 15 that were available (there were also 3 Radlers or Ciders). All of the beers were brewed very well to their respective style, and all but two were well above average so that the 10 beers averaged out to a 3.8 out of a grading system with a 5.0 max score. (Any individual beer score above 4 is difficult to come by in our scoring, so this is a great score.) It was too early to eat, and only one person was at the time, but we didn’t even look at the menu, thus no food score is included in this review.

This was a great place to start our day, and definitely a place that we’d return to when we come back to Portland. This is a Must-Stop place.
