On my journey to find Hop Henge on tap, I went to the source.
Along with having Hop Henge on tap the also had special cask condition beers (which cahnge as they run out). The had the normal Deschutes beers flowing like Mirror Pond and Balck Butte along with seasonals.
Food was ok but not top $$$ for what you pay for it.
Bar was loud but not reasonable, could easly have a conversation without yelling.
Service was good and my server always made sur my beer never was empty and was very knowlegable about beers that they had on tap.
If your in Portland and love Deschutes and great place to go...especially when Hop Henge is on tap!

It is now a tradition for my group to go to the Deschutes brewpub in Portland every year after Oregon Brewers Festival. Of course, this means I've only ever been there when it was packed to the gills, but frankly I think that adds to the atmosphere.
They have about 20 taps lined up, including two cask offerings. Most of these are brews that they also offer in bottles, but there are a few pub-only choices. I went with the cask Stock Ale, which was a fine beer indeed. They had Black Butte XXVI on tap while I was there, which is still a bit young but quite tasty indeed.
Service at the bar was quite prompt and friendly despite the chockablock nature of the crowd in there; I was impressed. The atmosphere was great with a lot of beer lovers having a good time. The Pearl is a great neighborhood for a place like this; I always have a good time at the brewpub.
I enjoyed the food there, although a compatriot of mine had egregiously over-salted ribs. But, really, I don't go to Deschutes for the food.
