Somehow every time I go to Portland we end up here until close. They have an insane selection, both in draft and in bottles. They supposedly always have a secret Pliny tap, but they were out last week. Some people think the place is a little snotty, but I don’t get that vibe. Every bartender I’ve interacted with has been nothing but nice. Don’t listen to any of it. They have a huge outdoor space and I guess a lot of people try to sneak in. If you’re visiting Portland, you should go here. (If you need a cab, they have a button beneath the bar they can push for you. Try it!) (587 characters)

Place rocks. Such a sweet selection. They may have multiple taps from same brewery but its a great one. Eg Barley Brown's (121 characters)

Might be the best beer bar I have ever visited. The selection is outstanding - I got to try some of my top 'wants' here including Pliny the Elder. Strong bottle selection and pinball games along with chilled out servers. A must visit in the PDX area. (250 characters)

Probably the best selection of beers you can find under one roof in Portland. A rotating selection of just about everything with an extensive (albeit pricey) list of bottles. (174 characters)

One of the top craft beer bars in all of Portland. Hands down. (62 characters)

Probably my all time favorite bar. Service is often great, but sometimes terrible depending on who's working. Taps and bottle list are consistently amazing. (156 characters)

Really great looking beer bar, love the video boards that kept the selection very up-to-date. Staff knew how to handle a crowd and were all very helpful. Pretty killer selection, good prices and simply a great place to throwndown. (231 characters)

Solid bar. Tap selection one of the best I've seen. Bottles priced very high, but a good selection of whales. A single-guy type bar, not somewhere I would take my wife. (171 characters)

One of the best tap selections in town, but can be a little overpriced. (71 characters)
