Notes:
The Brewery is located in the basement of the Hazelwood/'Leftbank' Building (its history includes a well-known early jazz club, Dude Ranch - an inspiration for the name 'Upright' - read more here:  http://leftbankproject.com/the-history/  ) and is Production-Only during normal weekday business hours.

A Tasting Room is open Friday from 4:30-9:00pm and Saturday/Sunday from 1:00-6:00pm, and prior to basketball games at the adjacent Rose Garden arena (Trailblazers only - check their home schedule). Food, when available, is basic: bread, an occasional charcuterie tray or sandwiches (provided by Grain & Gristle).

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.

On a recent "beercation" to Oregon and happened to be in Portland for Uprights release of Jeux d'eau.

Enjoyed the new beer as well as a couple others on tap. The tasting room is literally in the brewery. Its in the basement of a multi story building and makes you feel special, drinking a beer right in the vary room its made in. I may be crazy but I thought it was pretty cool.
