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. (1,684 characters)

The Green Dragon is one of my favorite beer bars in Portland. Despite consistently having 55+ beers on tap and dozens more available in bottles/cans, they don't attract quite the crowds that places like Horse Brass or Belmont Station do. If you want to spread out or even play a board game at your table, that will fly here.
They have a small production brewery that is used by both Buckman Botanical Brewery and Green Dragon Brew Crew use (expect 5+ of their beers to be on tap at all times). They are also owned by Rogue, so expect to see some Rogue presence (products for sale, beers on tap, etc.). (601 characters)

So it's the Green Dragon pub with the Buckman Brewery inside of it and it's apparently all owned by Rogue? Well whatever it is, it was great. Great environment, selection, knowledgable bartenders. I dig it (205 characters)

What you can expect: Some good beers and some mediocre ones. Rogue's usual sub par service. (91 characters)

About 55 brews on tap with six or so of them brewed in-house. Great and varied selection. Good service and nice place with beer memorabilia all over the place. Well worth stopping in and grabbing a few. (202 characters)

This is practically across the street from Cascade Barrel House so we decided to stop in and check it out. The place is absolutely huge. Multiple rooms, lots of bar space with community sitting and tables mixed throughout the main room.

The tap list is impressive if you are not a local. Even though is owned by Rouge, you will only find a handful of their beers on tap. It is mostly local offering, however, the quality of those local offerings is average. The service was spotty, as I think we caught them at a weird time (3pm) and the one waitress seemed to be running around and then occasionally having to tend to the bar.

Overall, enjoyed my time there, but I wouldn't make it a point to stop in again if back in Portland. (736 characters)
