Deschutes Brewery and Public House is the proper way to run an establishment tied into a brewery. Located in the Pearl district with plenty of other things to do, this is a great place to stop. The atmosphere is fairly open and modern looking. You can see the brew tanks and into the kitchen. We got a seat at a high bar table and sampled a few of their beers.
They have a pretty good selection here including a few you could not find too many other places in town. I ended up with an ESB, Hop Henge and a Black IPA. All were very fresh and clean tasting.
I was not there for food but what I saw looked decent. This is definitely a good stop for fans of the brewery.

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.
