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 one of the coolest brewery experiences I’ve ever had. You walk into a coffee shop in an industrial building, and there’s a sign pointing the elevator that says "Upright, basement".

You literally walk into the brewery. There are 6 taps with amazing things to try. You hang out, listen to Vinyls, sand drink by all the barrels. Yay Portland! Go here!!

basement, pay-to-park, cash only (ATM was broken)

Very interesting place - limited seating, amongst the tanks. Some vinyl playing in the background (of course, portland), a one-man operation slinging 10ish taps and a selection of bottles including 4 sole comp's on this particular day. Upright kind of does their own thing - much of it is very quality, though some is a little lackluster. All of the sole comp stuff i've ever had has been mostly great though.

I'll be back, not so much to hang out there, but to grab bottles and go hang somewhere a little more inviting.
