This was a must-stop for me while we traveled the Pacific NW. It's in an industrial area of Portland, but the building is literally a can't-miss-it after you exit the freeway.

The room is actually quite large, mostly full of tables, with a small bar area and a kitchen area you can see. It is open air in the front with tables outsides as well.

They serve full glass pours and sample pours. Most of their standards were on tap, but they also had a rotating barrel beer. In this case, it was Single Malt Adam. They have two sets of bottle lists (about 10 bottles listed per each). One is reasonably priced (I bought a $15 Otto) with more common beers. The other is the rare vintages, which were very expensive. Everything is for consumption on premises.

We ordered the pickled vegetables, they were good, but not great. We were there for lunch and it seemed alot of people were there to eat. However, in lieu of Pub food, we walked one block to the sandwhich shop (Bunk Bar).

This place has SO much hype behind it but didn't deliver anywhere close to what anyone had said. After touring 20+ craft breweries in the Portland area over the last month, the only thing this one stuck out as was for being the absolute worst spot, hands down and without a doubt!!! I wouldn't recommend their beers to any of my friends and wouldn't wish this place on even my worst enemy! A group of 4 of us tried all of their beers on tap and couldn't finish a single one. The service was horrendous, but at least it was better than their brews...didn't try the food, so I can't speak one way or another about its quality. I'm not one to write a bad review, but I have never in my 20 years of drinking craft brews have ever experienced such repulsive and completely unpalatable beer! I wish them the best, but if they don't get their act together, more people will realize the hype and they will quickly be out of business!!!
