I stopped by on my cross country road trip some Austin TX to Seattle WA.
There is a nice restaurant bar feel to the place which doesn't exactly ring pub but is similar to a brewpub I frequented in Austin so it was pretty comfortable.
I grabbed a seat at the bar where a bartender quickly made sure I had a menu and asked if I wanted anything to drink. I hadn't decided yet so he wandered off to help other people. When he came back I was torn between a couple which he gave me several small sampler glasses to help me decide.
They carry all their regular offerings plus some special pub only offerings giving it to a diverse line up.
I ended up ordering the fish and chips which was simply the best I have ever had. It was simply amazing. They also have a mustard of their own which is killer.
The beer is priced good but the food seemed a little pricey.

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.
