This place has one of the nicest exteriors you will ever see and inside is not too shabby either, their brewing equipment is about as shiny as it gets, we sat down at the bar during happy hour on a Wednesday night, ordered the sliders for $4.50 and when they came their bite size and three of them, most expensive food in Portland size wise, it was not great either which made it worse, the atmosphere in here is very upscale and nice, everything in here was immaculate, they have a cool inventory of frisbees, shirts, glassware, bottles, etc. when you walk in the door too, service was very weak, there was probably too many people to be working in the first place, and then to boot they were all just standing around talking to each other rather than concentrating on the customers, saw a few other guests get anxious about it too, I had just had the 2005 vintage of Mirror Mirror out of the bottle a week before the trip but wanted to try it fresh on tap, so I ordered a snifter, they only filled it about a quarter of the way, literally five to six ounces for $5.25, another thing I was not particularly happy about with this place, the beer was good though but I prefer it with some age and out of the bottle I think, all else aside, they do have about eight brews that of their own that I have never seen or even heard about it, we tried them all and the only one that stuck out being above average was the bock, all their beers on tap only, there is about sixteen to eighteen of them if I remember correctly, cool place but a little expensive for me, I would still go back, recommended

This is my third time visiting this fine establishment with my wife and two boys in tow. This time around on tap, I had a Fresh Squeezed and an Obsidian Stout on nitro. The options on tap, including cask + nitro, are excellent. The establishment is up-scale, and makes you feel like you are in an up-scale dining establishment. The staff there are helpful and are looking to please the customers. I have been here for dinner in the past, but this time we were eating lunch. Once again, expectations were met, and the food was nothing less than exceptional. Great location, fine food, and fine beer = A place I will keep visiting.

I tend to bring my friends here who are not as well versed in beer, but it's still a place I'd bring even the most hardcore beer geeks! I love the selection of pub only beers they have rotating, always something interesting available. Highly recommend for any PDX beercation!
