Fourth stop on our walking tour of the SE. Picnic tables outdoors, nice big bar with a/c indoors. Took a couple of seats at the bar and were served ice water before we could even say Hello. Nice.

We decided to order a taster flight which included Lila, Ruth Fred and Adam. We enjoyed all of these beers. If you are researching for a trip here, include this stop. We are huge IPA fans and didn't know if Hotd beers would be for us, but the answer is YES. Followed up with a pint of the Blue Dot IPA. Different, but really good. A nice respite from all of the beer we had had so far on our visit. The service was attentive and friendly.

We bought two bombers of the Blue Dot to share back home, and a nice tulip glass.

Vibe is great, food is average for Portland, beer selection in house is great but you can rarely get any good ale to go.

Service was average and not exceptionally friendly. Food (granted I only visited once) was poor. But the beer. Oh, the beer. One of my favorite breweries.

I go here regularly because there are few other places where the quality of the beer, food and service are all world class. Atmosphere is very cool and unique.

Beer: The regular taps are great, always 1 barrel aged beer available for a $9 glass. Adam, Fred are always available and they're always putting new experimental stuff on tap as well. The vintage menu is where it's really at! 2013 Matt is the best $18 you can spend in Portland on beer. 2002 Fred is amazing as well. If you're feeling very adventurous you can drop $50 on a 1994 Adam.

Food: Beef brisket. It's unreal and it will go great with a dark beer like Adam. The pastrami sandwich is another favorite.

Service: I've heard complaints from others on the service here but I tend to get the same couple servers who recognize my face and are incredibly friendly.
