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. .
