Just a couple of blocks from Rogue towards the more populous part of town and on a busier street, this giant facility has something of the feel of a Spaghetti Factory; there seems to be an affinity with families with children. Still, we were able to sit outside, another benefit of relaxed Portland vs uptight Chicago, away from the echoing warehouse.
Cask conditioned ales provide a bonus and the range is good; you can get a six-sampler flight if you want served on one of those neat little wooden paddles.
Service was fine. We just felt it lacked atmosphere which is saying nothing about the quality of beer available.

I stopped in with my boss, our plan was to have a beer or two and then go somewhere else for dinner. So much for plans, we had such a good time; we ended up staying for over 4 hours!
The long bar is to your left as you enter. There are dining areas to your right. I liked the high ceilings and all the windows as they give this place a very open, airy feeling.
We sat at the bar and received really excellent service from the three bartenders that were manning the bar. They all had plenty of beer knowledge, made good suggestions, were free with samples and were also very friendly and funny.
They had 6 regulars on tap plus an additional 6 or so rotators. They also offered some good bottle selections. I really enjoyed the fresh squeezed IPA, The Hop Henge and a big red whose name escapes me.
The food was great. I liked their take on wings, loved the big pretzel and really liked their soup.
All-in-all, a great experience for us. I realize Portland has a ton of good places and I think this one is in the top echelon. .
