Third stop on our SE walking tour. A mystery stop for us since an updated tap list is not to be found online. The place is broken up into a front and back bar in a big warehouse type room. The boards for each bar are separate making it a little tough to take it all in, so get a list from the bar to study. It was early afternoon, and the place was fairly empty.
We ended up sitting at the front bar to study our list. The a/c was cranking on an unusually hot Portland day. If felt good after our long walk, otherwise we probably would have moved out to the patio which was through an unmarked door, just so you know.
I ordered a Colalition. Oops forgot to say IPA, but the guy didn't ask either. So he heads to the back bar where the cream ale is, and I jumped up to tell him I wanted the IPA (which was up front). I got a look, but he left it and got me the Two Dogs IPA which was good. Was wondering if the cream ale was for "girls" ha ha. My husband had the Sasquatch Moby Dick Imp IPA. Also good.
There were so many beers on tap here, a good thing. At this point Dan took over the bar for the rest of our visit, and that was a good thing too. He was very friendly and was great about filling us in on his opinions about the tap list and the rest of the beer scene in the SE.
I had the Heathen Son of Malice IPA next and it was really good. Dan gave a taste of some of the other IPAs on the list, but the Heathen was good enough for a second round. We were both drinking half pours here, which is excellent on a long day with so many great beers to try.
Overall, after an odd start, we really enjoyed our visit here and would return on a future trip. Can't decide if it was first or second favorite of our four stops.
