Stop #2 on my tour of Portland. Coming from Deschutes, this is a drop off.
First thing you notice is the self promotion. There are bottles, boxes, shirts of Rogue all OVER the place here. It's an eye sore; doesn't help the scenery. Combine that with the bright pink, Pepto Voodoo Doughnut bottles all around and the eyes start blurring before drinking any beer.
The bar portion is cramped and small, opening up to a larger section with the distilled spirits bar.
Beer menu is long, but nothing 'unique', and badly organized. Newcomers will find it confusing to read and know what's on tap. They do offer smaller menus at the tables, but "menu" is a stretch. It's a list; names of beers--no style, no abv, no nothing. Trashy.
The restaurant place looked better, but still confused. Even the restrooms (barley and hops) make you wonder what the hell they're doing.
I found myself ordering 4 samples and getting out of there asap. Too bad.
