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!!!

This was stop #21 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Sunday morning to enjoy their beers, but ended up having a snack too. The brewery is located in an older building in an industrial area, and the place was not yet busy for the day.

The taproom is partitioned off into a large open area from the brewery, and the feel is more industrial that it is a taproom. But the beers made up for that. We ordered samples of 4 beers to start, and then liked them so much we ordered two more samples to go along with a snack plate of meat, cheese and bread/butter. The beers were all very well done to style, and we felt that the Brandy Cherry Fred was exceptional. Since we did not have anything other than a snack plate (the kitchen was putting out some great-smelling foods) we did not include a food rating in this review. However, the plate that we had was very good, especially the bread and butter (of all things, simple stuff is sometimes the best).

The bartender was very affable to chat with, and the others at the bar provided some lively conversation. We really enjoyed ourselves here, and will definitely do back if we’re ever in Portland again.

Stopped at this place few years ago before I was really knowledgeable about beers. Asked few questions about different ones I wanted to try and the staff seemed somewhat annoyed. I guess they rather deal with locals or beer geeks. Hey no hard feelings now I'm a total beer snob.

Anyway I just ordered different ones and I must say I was blown away by the FRED. To this day I seek it out and keep some in the fridge. The have excellent beers.

I love this place. Some of the best beer on the planet. Great service and friendly atmosphere. Had one of the best pastrami sandwiches ever. Walked out with a shirt and a Growler of Adam. Fred. Will. Adam. Try them all. I had Cherry of Adam of the Wood. Incredible.
