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.

A-The Green Dragon is located east of downtown Portland in a mixed-use area near the Cascade Barrel House. It feels as if its located in old green house or something because of the arched tin roof and concrete floors. Not very many windows, however. The place is pretty big and open and it was relatively busy when I stopped in at around 9 on a random, rainy Tuesday night.

Q-The beers on the large tap list were above-average quality, but not mind-blowing or super rare. The better-known Northwest breweries were well-represented, along with a mattering of pretty good stuff from other, more remote destinations, like Colorado and California.

Ser-The servers were hustling when I visited, which was a bit of a contrast to the quieter atmospheres at Cascade and Hair of the Dog earlier in the evening. That meant that I sat for a minute before I could place my beer order, but once I ordered I quickly received my beer and I never felt like I was ignored. The beer was also poured with care in the appropriate glass.

Sel-The tap list consists of fifty beers, which isn't huge by today's standards, but still provides plenty to select from. As noted above, there is a great variety of smaller local and sort-of local breweries, as well as some more unique offerings from bigger names in craft like New Belgium. Didn't notice any bottles, but there may have been some on offer.

V-My beer was reasonably priced...not too cheap, not too spendy.

O-This makes a good stop if you are in the neighborhood. It may not be a place to hunt for, but when you visit Cascade, it is definitely worth walking across the street to try out some of the up and coming brews they have on tap here.
