Just went to this place today, I had heard about it and had been meaning to check it out for quite some time. Atmosphere is great, it was real nice outside when i went so they had the doors up with people sitting outside eating and drinking. I sat at the bar and service was great. Had a sampler tray where you get to pick 6 beers. The beers brewed here are for sure different, they like to experiment a bit which is cool. I had the gruit/spruce wheat/IPA/hoppy amber, aztec and saison. All were great but I liked the aztec and spruce wheat the best. I am not much for wheat beers but the spruce added a nice touch. I also had a small sample of their Sazerac beer brewed with star anise...it was ok for a sample...dont think i would like a full pint of the stuff however. The menu was pretty good, I had the fried pickles which i will get those no matter what place has them and a small nacho...both were good. I will go back here again, good place to go to get something you wont find any other place as I said before they like to experiment at Breakside so you are likely to find something different thats for sure.

A nice variety of beers (~11) across the style spectrum, all crafted extremely well. Eager for another visit to enjoy another seasonal flight and to try more of their food choices. Beer-wise, this may be the closest I've found here in Portland to mimic the greatness I expected & experienced on my multiple visits to Founders Brewing Co. during my years living in Michigan.

This was stop #16 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Friday evening just to try their beers. The place was packed elbow-to-elbow, and very noisy, which must be an indication of the overall quality of the beers and their food. We would have liked to wait the 40 minutes that the hostess said it would take, but after ordering a beer at the bar, fighting the crowd and the noise level we decided to leave. So this review is based on some assumptions of what we observed and experienced. Our only beer was the Breakside IPA, and it was very tasty. We didn’t get to look at the food menu, but the look and aromas of the food at nearby tables makes one think that this place is well balanced with great beer and great food.

If we are ever in town again we’ll go back here at a less busy time so that we can experience what that large crown was enjoying the night that we were there.
