Well, easy enough to find the building...and bit tricky finding parking and then the actual brewery. Go inside, down the stairs (or elevator). It's a barrel room that serves beer. Fine enough
Small. Two picnic tables, a square table and small round top. No bar, just a register and taps with 9 beers flowing. Good local music playing on the old time stereo (alas, not on vinyl).
Service is one person and pretty good. Seemed a bit irked to be working on a Sunday. I don't blame him. Geeks like me seem to show up on odd days.
Beer is really good. I only had 3 tasters (at $1.50/ea) b/c I was driving. But did pick up some bottles.
Not a great destination, but if you like UR beers and want something not on shelves, hit this place.

This was stop #23 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon to enjoy their beers. (Actually we had stopped out front the day before after driving around the building a few times, but did not realize it was the correct place and moved on to the next brewery, so the visit this day was a success.) The brewery is located in the basement of this large red brick building, but there is no brewery sign (or a building address number that we could see) other than a small sandwich board that they put out on the sidewalk in front of the entrance door when the taproom is open.
After winding our way to the basement we walked into an obvious brewery setting with equipment all around. In a corner was a tap arrangement with an employee who was the bartender that day. Five ounce, 12 oz. and pitchers are available, and the price is right at this brewery. Tables are spread out around the area where some brewing equipment is sitting, so you get a true feeling of drinking at the brewery in this place.
We ordered a sampler of 6 of the 9 beers that were available (a cider was also listed), and went back later to get samples of the other three. All of these beers are very well made, and we got bored assigning the same B grades to all of them, but it was an enjoyable ‘bore’ session. There are some packaged snacks available, but no food.
This was an enjoyable experience, and we’re glad that we tried again to find this place after using up so much of our drinking time the day before in our search to find this brewery. We’d come back again when we’re in Portland.
