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.

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.update: last visit was able to buy a case of Cherry Adam from the Wood, and 2 giant bottles of Otto; have shared with many friends back in Illinois, and they can't get enough, awesome beer!

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).
