Deschutes is elegant and rather ornate, with large wooden columns topped by elaborate etchings of frolicking beavers. A large glass window allows one to peer upon their massive brewing kettles. The highlight of the trip to Portland for my wife was the coin chute. One can tip the bartenders by throwing coins into a metal vent, place high on the wall behind the back bar, that is connected via chute to a coin jar. This often results in bartenders being pelted by drunk change tossers, but they seemed to be accustomed to it--and a tips a tip.

They had the Jubelale and the much coveted Abyss on tap--both were great, especially the limited Abyss, a glorious, creamy Imperial Stout. The service was extremely efficient--two bartenders asked me if I'd been help after I had been. Some people this annoying, but I much prefer it to waiting unnoticed.

The food was quite good. The ginger mussels were delightful, and the Beervlaki a delicious twist on Greek Souvlaki. I can't wait to return to Deschutes.

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!

Stopped by the public house on a brief trip to Portland in spring of 2014. I liked this place! Deschutes has been my go-to 6 pack good beer for years and it was great to catch up on some of their new beers and experiments. Typical brewery atmosphere with all the solid deschutes beers and many great seasonals. Food was on par for a brewery. Not much else to say!
