The new location of the taproom looks new with lots of metal/steel throughout. I like the layout, very uncluttered and inviting, in a strange way. Wraparound bar and a few tables in the rest of the space. The bar is nice, as it is very long but wraps completely around in a long "U" shape and uses the space well.

Beer is great, as is to be expected. Had some special taproom only beers that haven't been bottled, including fruited versions of Fred. Prices were very reasonable and tasters of anything are available, which was nice. Selection was impressive the time I was there. We were on our way to other brewpubs, otherwise, I'd have stayed here all afternoon.

Service was attentive and helpful. I tried the pickled vegetables and they were tasty. Apparently Alan Sprints is a big fan of pickling things, which I can not argue with. A nice little bar snack.

Definitely try to come here if you are in Portland. Located in an industrial area near the waterfront, it is well worth visiting.

They also had a small vintage bottle list that allows you to try things that have been long sold out, including Matt, Cherry Adam from the Wood, and Michael. On premise consumption. A nice treat.

With three excpetions, beers throughout the flight were less than desirable; four of the eight beers (all offered taps) were near or absolutely sickeningly sweet. Easily the most disappointing flight I've had from a brewery, both flavor-wise and expense-wise ($2.25 to $4.00 for each 3 oz sample). Service was good, though low beer quality trumped that. No food sampled this visit. Left the brewery with my mouth feeling overtly of sweetness as if I had just indulged in a candy store.

Been here only twice and wish I lived close. The beer speaks for itself in the consistently high ratings. The food is on par with a lot of options, and very good quality. Then you have the vintage beer menu, come on, you're killing me! I want all of them! Not unless you want to be carried out, you must choose only a couple, there will be more, again. Great merch, quality service, nice atmosphere.A must visit.
