I had heard lots of good things, so finally made it down to the brewpub. Went on a Friday around 6 or so and sure enough the place was hopping. Only problem was they had open tables upstairs, but not enough staff (how can you not find servers on a Friday night) so had to stand huddled with my 3 other friends near the door. Went for the IPA first, and it was all grapefruit, caramel, and a 3 second finish. It left me wondering what IPA won the medals cause it certainly wasnt mine. It was far too basic and had no balance or finish. I went for the 7 grain stout next, cause that sounded like a big, beefy delicious stout, but once again was vastly let down by a light bodied, slightly dry stout without music of a finish (again) It was ok, but nowhere near as complex or big as I had hoped. Tried one more beer which was the pale, which tasted like fried chicken that has been sitting in a box losing its heat for 10 minutes. Needless to say I sent it back, closed my tab, and left wondering if I had gone to the right brewery, because the beers were all completely forgettable, and in Oregon, there is just too much out there that is way better. Don't believe the hype

Laurelwood offers a much better consistent quality and variety of beer, so if you must drink orgainc in Portland, go for Laurelwood or Roots

A decent place to visit. Atmosphere was pretty generic / sportsbarish, with an obvious bicycling theme going on. I don't know who's idea it was to combine beer and bike, but to me, those are two things that just don't belong together by any means. "Don't drink and drive," the sign says. Yeah, well, you can still get a DUI for riding a bike drunk, FYI.

Anyway, there was quite an array of house beers to choose from, although really only two or three stood out as particularly good to me, the best clearly being the vintage barrel-aged barleywine. Comfort foods on the menu for the most part, but all good. Service was decent and prices were pretty friendly all over. A nice place, but I'd be fine skipping it on my next visit to the fine city of Portland.

Last time we were here which was about three years ago they were making their own soy cheese for their vegan pizzas. It was the best soy cheese I'd ever had so I was really looking forward to having it again. They no longer make their own cheese, they use daiya now so I had soup and salad. Very disappointing. The soup was good but just didn't make up for the great pizza I thought I was going to have. Atmosphere here is nice, bicycle themed with lots of wood and copper top tables. A little worn looking but comfortable. Very family friendly and not real noisy so that was a plus. Quality was okay. Service was a little slow and not outwardly friendly. Could be better. Beer selection was very good. They do have quite a few vegan selections which I always look for.

Hopworks is a regular destination for me but it sure isn't a perfect place. First, the beers are incredible. I have Crosstown Pale as a 5.0 beer on here, and the IPA is also world class. Everything else are good beers for their styles, but being more of an extreme drinker, the selection bores me a bit. The food quality is great but every single time I have ordered dinner, something has come out wrong (and I am anything but a picky food guy). I also had a problem with their policy of bringing in any size bottle you want and they will fill it. Well OK so I brought in a few flip top 32oz bottles and the person complained the entire time about filling them and then did not know how to charge me for them. This happened with another bartender as well. Basically the beers are so good I keep going back.

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.

First of all I will give the disclaimer that before I came here I ate too much at the food cars on 12th. After finding a parking spot way in the back I stepped in to a very cool looking place full of woodwork with even a Hopworks vehicle outside. Place had a good vibe and also showed me how popular pro soccer is there. Bought a sampler and their beers were solid, although IPAs probably were the winner here... I seemed to detect hops in all their beers, even the stouts and porters. Wished that there were a few exclusive or barrel aged beers there, maybe I was there on the wrong day. As with other places in the city, I might visit again if there weren't so many other places to visit in the city and it weren't so far away. I definitely would recommend a first visit, just don't eat too much food at the food carts before you go.

Hopworks isn't in the easiest part of SE Portland to get to. It's a bit out of the way, but definitely worth getting to.

Even on a saturday afternoon, there was a good amount of people here and most of the tables were filled. Thankfully my friends had grabbed a table here to begin with.

The HUB brews that I tried were pretty good. Nothing that blew me away, but very drinkable and enjoyable. The service was decent. Sometimes it was hard to find our own waiter, but it usually wasn't too hard to get a hold of a different server to get a beer or food.

The food itself was pretty damn good. I liked the pretzel that my friends got and the ancho lime chicken sandwich that I got was really good.

HUB's location makes it a bit harder to get to than other places in SE Portland. It's definitely on my return list, but not right at the top.

We made a visit here based on a number of hot and cold recommendations on a Sunday afternoon.

The decor is is sorta Centipede/80s video arcade machine with recycling plant modern chic. Recycled kegs are split in half and made into planters. About a hundred bicycle midsections are lined up above the sleek long bar. One table is situated inside a room sized safe. A fire pit is also present. I like the decor overall. No complaints about service.

I had the sampler. The HUB lager was surprisingly good and hoppy. They were unconsconably out of the 7Grain Survival Stout -- no dark beers. I'd say the quality was a little better than average.

We had the cajun fries, which were pretty good.

Overall: I'd definitely come back to try the stout.

Very large place with a cool biked theme decor. Great looking colors and logo.

Large variety of beers (12 I believe) with a varying range of styles. Tend to lean towards more of the hoppy styles. We did the sampler and all of the beers were all solid with my favorite being the 7 grain porter/stout with coffee. Service was very good and helpful.

Beer is available to go with some shirts and glasses available also. We did not try the food.

Good experience overall, but I don't feel like this place is a must visit in Portland. Not a bad choice though.

Dulcie and Aylwin's ongoing beer adventure. Slightly amazed that this is the first review on BA. Brunch at the Hedge House set us up nicely for a cultural contrast at the ultra-clean, ultra-modern eco-conscious Hopworks. Lots of groovy marketing here with logos and teeshirts and different glasses and so forth. In character with most Portland joints it is ridiculously easy to park at and is not crowded - although Sunday afternoon is probably not the peak time. We did note however the catering to the family as there appeared to be an entire area devoted to infants. Was there a children's beer menu? This seems to be a Portland theme: parents taking their infants to pubs so they can carry on their lives as if nothing has changed.

The area is rather industrial but the view from the balcony does gaze on the hills of Portland across the Willamette.

We did not try food, but sampled the IPA (quite strong at 6.9 %) and the Old Organic Ale (also quite strong). Unlike most establishments they do not do halves, which is a drag if you are doing a tour. Beer was good if not memorable.

This is an odd place, something about it feels like it isn't actually a brewery, more like a chain sports bar or something? The only thing that seemed appropriately "Portland" about the place was the fixture above the bar made out of old bike frames, though that was more trying too hard than neat.

The beer was just on the happy side of average for a Portland brewery. Most were good, nothing was really memorable. The selection was a bit better than most and they branched out in terms of style more than some similar breweries I visited on my trip to PDX. They get bonus points for offering a full on "everything on tap" sampler tray as an option rather than screwing around with six glass samplers when they have nearly twenty beers on tap.

Our food experience was limited to a soft pretzel and beer cheese dip, but it was good. The service was good as well.

Overall it's worth a visit, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get there when there are a few excellent breweries in the city, and oh so many that might as well be this one.

Now back in and around Portland proper; our absurd travelings about behind us, at last. Ambitious afternoon beyond the OBF, probably not, but I pretty well behaved just the same. So you can imagine my surprise at suddenly finding myself in the parking lot at HUB. I may have been, um, resting my eyes between there and here, hard to say, not seeing things too clearly. Groggy, but I think I’ve got at least one and done in me...

So, up the ramp (a handful of picnic tables there, the patio lined with cut keg planters below triangular awnings), and in. It’s a somewhat rounded hangerish looking building long & narrow with fat angled rafters & ceiling with drop martini glass lampage. Read somewhere that it’s supposed to resemble an upside down boat, and that it kind of do. Cement floors, large panel windows on the front side, and burgundy painted walls otherwise with ‘Portland Timber’ soccer flagging, flats, & pennants.

Through and to a half a hex shaped bar down to the right; stained copper topped, with a honeycomb base, & phat piping phoot rail. Seating for 18 on hightop chairs 3 sides around. The barback does a corner wraparound with a center shelving piece 2 tiered with a TV in the middle of it, and mugs, steins, glasses, trophies, & baby cups. A giant clock sits atop HUB bombers, and there are GABF & World Beer Cup medals. Horizontal boards sit to both sides off the corner listing tap selections, OG, IBU, ABV, & descriptions. Vintage brewerania cans line above, and beer trays atop. Sampler trays and glassware of all sizes & shapes counterside below the boards, and cupboardy space tucked underneath. A row of bike frame uprights runs over the bar with track baby spots within.

On one end, 6 booths along the outside wall, 3 adjacent across the way, and then upwards of a dozen tables running back to an open kitchen, with a kids zone. Toys! I fuckin’ love toys! On the bar side, a dozen and a half booths, hightops, & lowboys running the perimeter along the bar. And there’s some sort of shorty room, maybe 5 x 8, with a single table, chairs, and what Washburn is calling a snake plant. It’s a punishment room if ever I’ve seen one. Staircase front off center to some seating space up above (Never got up there, though. Did I not just mention ‘stairs’?) And a dozen and a half tables on a narrow deck running the length to the rear.

Towers of 10 on each end of the bar, and a pair of handpumps on the corner in between. 10 beers on tap, got to try ½ of them (IPX Cascade single hop, 6.5%, pine, citrus, did not suck; Velvet ESB, tasty, malty, lovely; I am deserving of a large glass of this but it is not tot be; Hopworks IPA, 6.6%, Phil got it, and I moved in on it, a citrus, nice IPA; Evelyn’s Imperial Sunshine, 7.2%, an Impy IPA, grapefruit & piney, not cloying; Ace of Spades, 9.2%, double IPA, big & bitter), and not the other ½ of them (HUB Lager, Survival 7 Grain Stout, Deluxe Organic Ale, Belgian Style Pale Ale, & Kentucky Christmas, which is their abominable Winter Ale bourbon barrel aged), or the cask offering (Deluxe Organic Ale). The IPX Cascade single hop, Velvet ESB, & Hopworks IPA were the best of what I had. You realize of course that of the 10 beers up, 4 of them are IPA’s, right? Yeah, good eye. IPA, IPA, Double IPA, Imperial IPA; Phil was right about breweries having to id beers stylewise for the consumers, we. Brewers just want to make beer, they need to call them something for the likes of us.

We opted for some light foodings; Washburn, the nachofied organic French fries (he ate all of them, not), Phil, the cheese steak, he claimed it was quite good (I saw it, I wanted it, I hated on him), with house made chips of excellent, and I had the wings with some chipotle sauce sold to me as not being so hot. They were nicely smoked and true, there wasn’t too much heat. The serving was only 5 wings (whereas, I would have liked 27), but it showed up over a pile of fries & served with celery.

Nice clean spacious open place. Um, banana bicycle seat ‘head rests’ over the urinals, I don’t know how I feel about that. Good food, and a couple of very nice beers here; would like to get back and take it all in clear & coherently, but that’s another day, another trip.

Let me start by revealing that I stop here for pizza and beer probably about once a week, and may stop for a beer more than that at times. Obviously I like the place, and the fact that it is one of the few quality craft beer spots in SE Portland south of Division doesn't hurt.

The atmosphere varies depending on when you go. This is a very kid-friendly spot, mostly nights and weekends. If you can stop by during the day on a weekday you will find a fairly quiet place. Evenings and weekends you will almost certainly wait for a table. You can of course always avoid the kid-friendly scene by sticking to the 21-and-over bar side; this will not keep you from the crowds though.

The food is primarily pizza driven, and the pizza is excellent. Do not expect New York style thin crust though. This is pizza with a decidely NW slant. I recommed the Cascade Mountain with blue cheese and apples. The nacho-fied fries are excellent too. The downside of the food menu is that is pricey. Again, stick to the bar side and you can get pizza by the slice.

The beer selection is good- a nice selection of standards, seasonals and one-offs, few of which are bottled. No guest taps here. Tonight they had Muscles from Brussels Strong Belgian, Rise Up Red, Galactic Imperial Red and Ace of Spades IIPA as the seasonals. They also always have two casks.

Overall, while I realy enjoy HUB, if I was visiting from out of town I would stick to closer-in SE Portland spots like Cascade Barrel House, Hair of the Dog, Belmont Station, Apex, Horse Brass, etc. If you are here for a longer visit or like to tick breweries, definitely add HUB to the must-do list.

Hopworks Urban Brewery is nestled in a fairly divey section of town full of graffiti and signs in the parking lot warning about the risk of valuables getting stolen from vehicles. Fortunately the inside of the pub is a completely different story as it's beautifully styled and decorated. I loved the steel racks and vintage beer can collection plus the table that is inside of a vault like room. Plenty of table seating spread out over 2 floors with a really nice outdoor patio area to boot. The brewery is in the downstairs back area with wide open garage doors that give you a chance to peek in on the action. Another bar and bottle shop is available downstairs in the brewery section as well. The upstairs bar has seating for about 15 people. Beer offerings seemed limited to about 10 and food options were both tasty and desirable. Our bartender was very friendly and offered us several free samples which was a plus. Beer was pretty darn good but not quite great. I'd give it a 4.2 if I could so I'm rounding down a bit.

a bit out of the way as far as Portland is concerned - adjacent to many fast food options along Powell

cool interior - lots of bikes, some tv's, an attractive bar and ample seating.

selection was solid - maybe 10-12 taps with all of the staples and a few draft-only options, including a barrel aged offering that was pretty tasty.

happy hour food menu was solid - "pint O pretzels" delievered and the roasted peanuts could have fed a family of 4

I dig Hopworks - will check out the Bike Bar on my next venture to Portland

Stopped here on August 12th after a day out and about in Portland.
Overall vibe was good. We chose to sit outside on the patio, which was a bit warm with temps well into the 80's that day. Inside was cool, the bicycle central to the decor. Organic is the theme of the beer and food.
Quality of food and brew was very good. We sampled some of the beer at the Bite of Oregon festival the previous Sunday and both Da Boss and i were very impressed enough to find this place. The Stout and IPA were good. Da Boss liked the Pale quite well.
Service was OK, the server did not have a lot of enthusiasm for his job nor was he overly friendly but he covered his job fairly well.
Selection of beer was good, all the basic styles were covered. Not sure how many taps were available but there was about eight beers on the menu.
Food was very good, the organic cheeseburgers were cooked perfectly and were as good as we have had.
Overall value was good. We had the first round before happy hour (4.25) and round two was during happy hour ($3.50). Overall we got out of there for $41 including a 20% tip.

Took the #9 bus to Hopworks from downtown. Relatively easy to get to.
The place has a large wood ceiling, kind of barn-like. A ton of old beer cans line ledges along the base of the ceiling. There's an upstairs area, but I didn't venture up there. Kind of an open, industrial feel.
The bar is big and copper, with a series of old bike frames above it.
Ok, one big gripe: the beer is all served in mugs, regardless of what type of beer it is.
Selection is great. Ten of theirs on tap, plus two on cask. A pretty wide variety. Service at the bar was friendly and easy going. High quality. Great happy hour prices.
I like hopworks, but it's not my favorite in Portland.

Visited during a recent trip to Portland. We visited during Happy Hours and had a few beers and appetizers before going on a tour / extended chat with their excellent tour manager, Amelia.

The appetizers were madly cheap. I hesitate from giving a single $ only becuase we didn't pay much attention to the non-happy hour menu. They were delivered promptly and pleasantly. The food was average, but again we didn't inspect the main menu.

Both the beers and the facility itself display a confidence that seem beyond their two years of operation. The beers we sampled all displayed character, depth and some stylistic rigidity where appropriate... where bigger, bolder steps were needed, they were taken - we found the Ace of Spades and Galatic Red to be outstanding.

Solid food, good-great beer and a fun, bike-lovin atmosphere? I'd be a regular if it weren't 3000k from my house.

Had not been here since it first opened...

HUB is an interesting looking brewpub, with a very modernistic vibe and atmosphere. There is plenty of wood and metal, with an attractive copper bar on the main floor. The place is pretty good size, with a fairly large dining area upstairs and on the main floor. There is also a modest size bar area, which is where I perched on this particular day.

On this particular day there were some 11 beers on tap, with a number of bottled offerings available as well. The quality of HUB beers is very high; I've yet to try anything that was anything short of excellent. The IPA's in particular are outstanding here, with the cask IPA extraordinairy.

Service this day was pretty good, with the staff quick and pretty knowledgable about the beers on offer. Food was pretty decent, though it was hardly anything extraordinairy (the happy hour wings and pizza were both fine). Prices were likewise decent; an order of happy hour wings, a slice of pizza, and two beers came to $15.

Any place else and this would likely be a go to spot for me. However, in beer rich Portland, this is just another good place to grab a good glass of IPA and a slice.

Ok, so the bike seats above the mens urinal are just plain genius! Seriously, after a few pints leaining your head while releaving is awesome. I cant comment on table service, but the bartender was great. Very knowelable and attentive. Also, he did not hesitate to pour us a few samples. Their beer is good to great, though I was taken back by the highly filtered, polished look. Selection is good, they have 6-8 on tap plus a cask, I do like when brewpubs have more around a dozen options, but Hopworks is found around town and I imagine they are restricted to keep up with outside accounts. I had a slice of pizza with my brew and it was damn good, just perfect crust with enough toppings. I like that they are eco friendly, though I think they take their marketing a bit far as the "first" eco friendly brewpub, many breweries and brewpubs in the Portland area have been eco freindly for some time now. All in all another great Portland watering hole.

I am glad I picked HUB to visit on my limited Portland schedule. The first thing I noticed was the bike frames above the bar. A very original and effective touch.

They have a late HH and the food prices at the bar are rock bottom. I had a Beer sausage sandwich with chips for $3.75. Everything else on the HH menu was priced right. I also had the Seven Grain Oatmeal Stout, which was very good.

Something that made my experience there unforgetable was an impromptu jam session. About 7 or 8 band mates walked in, found a clearing and just went at it. They were good, really good! The bartenders and all the patrons were completely surprised. After they stopped, that passed out a few cards, and had a few beers. I think they were just going around trying to get their name out there. It was very cool.

This brewpub looks sleek and a bit swanky from the outside, plenty of stainless steal and loud colors, dominated by yellow and red. It feels a little cold on the inside, devoid of so much of the wood and brass normally found at a brewpub. However. the bike frames hanging above the main bar anchor the modern geometric decor. Several faux bank vaults are located in the bar area, one which houses a table that can accommodate up to around six people a la the snugs found in Irish pubs. My friend Dave especially enjoyed the extension of the bike theme (the brewmaster/owner is a cycling enthusiast) found in the restroom: bicycle seats mounted to the wall above the urinal, on which one could rest their head while micturating. We thought this genius, while our wives found it unsanitary. They've never used a urinal before obviously.

The quality of the organic brews was solid. I especially enjoyed the Czech lager and the Flog N Noggin Barley wine. The Winter lager was solid as well.

The service was a bit slow initially, but they were getting slammed all at once. Once the server arrived, she was very attentive and knowledgeable.

I did not check out the guest brews, but the house brews were varied to appeal to all tastes.

We did not eat much food, but the hummus was good and the spinach salad was solid as well. All the product is from local, sustainable producers.

I would certainly frequent this place if I lived in the SE quadrant of Portland.

We went here during our Portland beercation. It was early in the day so it wasn't very crowded, which was nice and definitely contributed to the great atmosphere. We tried everything they had on-tap, and overall, the quality of the beers was really good, but not quite "great." Still worth a visit and a try just for the beers. In my opinion, the place really shined for its food. I love having something organic/healthy to select from, and this place really hit that mark. I had the "Portland Bello" sandwich and side salad which was seriously just excellent. Our server was very friendly and prompt with service, which I appreciated.

I could see myself going here a lot if I were a local. I loved the overall feel of this place and I really enjoyed my lunch and beer samples. Recommended.

Visited the brewery pub tonight after attending a seminar in downtown Portland. Shared a pizza and a couple beers with my son. Sat in the restaurant side hoping to have quieter conversation, but the place was bustling for a Tuesday night. Pizza was excellent and the stout and IPA on tap were both very good. Service was a bit slow at times as we had to wait a bit long to get our second beers. Parking lot is small so I am glad we got there before 5:30 pm. After tasting their Abominable winter ale, I decided to bring home a bomber as I have not seen this in the stores. Tried a sampler of their DIPA which seemed okay, but not enticing enough to order a pint. Great to see their commitment to organics and sustainability.
