I actually visited the Pearl District Brew Pub back in December but never got around to reviewing it. This review is based on my memory and not notes but I think that is OK because I am not reviewing the beer from memory.

The inside of the place is top notch. It's a big open air downtown-meets-industrial-meets-outdoors theme. There is raw wood, stainless, steel and hip Portland chic decor throughout. Definitely not a typical bar and I would not be hesitant to do a business lunch here.

Our server messed up our food order but I didn't complain and ate it anyway. He brought me the elk burger with sweet potato fries instead of the lamb burger with some other side dish I can't remember now. I do remember enjoying the burger and fries anyway. He did get our beers right. We had an Arctic Blastanator Weizen Bock with our food and a snifter of Streaking the Quad after we finished eating. I said I wouldn't review the beers from memory but I do remember being very impressed with each beer and believe that the Arctic Blastanator was probably the most banana nuanced beers I have ever had.

I will return to Deschutes upon my return to the city but will have to do it with a bonus check from work or with something to celebrate. I found the receipt in my wallet the other day, and it looked like this; two burgers + four beers = $55...before the tip...for lunch!

We had a couple brews here and a little food. It was all good as was the service. The selection is solid, but lacking if you want sours or Belgian style brews. If you haven't been you should go, it's an institution in PNW brewing.

A must visit when in Portland. Great selection and a few special offerings. Food was better than average if a little on the bland side.
