The first review on here makes some great points about the atmosphere. It is simple, but clean, nothing special.
But I sort of like the minimalist approach as well. Its not overrun with beer paraphernalia as many places are want to do.

Q - cascade was one of the highlights for beer of my trip to Portland, simply top notch, some of the best sours in the world.

S/S- staff was quick, very friendly and knowledgeable and let us have a few tastes.
Great selection of cascade brews, wouldn't expect anything less.

The one thing I was disappointed in is that they didn't offer a tasting paddle.

This was stop #22 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. Before stopping here we were not very experienced in drinking sours (some non-sours are also available), so this was a unique learning experience. And learn we did. It was pleasurable.

The brewery is located along a busy street that appears to be mostly light industrial businesses, and the taproom is a partitioned area of the building. A large overhead door was open, and a number of picnic tables with umbrellas were situated in front of the building so as to enjoy the fine weather on this day (which we did).

We ordered samples of 8 of the 19 beers that were available that day, and without thinking, we ended up having three beers that we had already tasted at Raccoon Lodge. But we did have a mixture of sours with the non-sours, and we enjoyed every sip of them. The flavor combinations in the sours were astounding – who would have thought that a mixture of honey, ginger and lime would be so good? I can’t write in this review that these beers were made to style because I don’t know how to gauge that when evaluating sours, but if tastiness has anything to do with it, then the brewer is right on with these beers.

The outdoor surroundings on a nice day and to be able to drink these beers for a wonderful learning experience gave us great memories so that we’d go back to this brewery in a heartbeat when we’re in the Portland area again.
