We went based on a recommendation from a hair of thr dog bartender. No regrets but I wasn't wowed. Industrial bare bones feel. They had several saison which isn't a fair test since they're just average to me. Food was good. Had a great beer cheese dip. Cool that the tanks were open and visible from the seating area.

Neat place between Hair of the Dog and Cascade Barrelhouse. Mostly Belgian farmhouse style, fairly light in general. Newer building but guess they just moved here. new brick, rustic oldish wood beams, nice corner view with many windows. Tap room is in the middle of the brewery, the stainless setup on one side, barrels on the other, new plywood to portion off the bathrooms and bar. Bartender was busy but helpful and knowledgeable, the one thing he didn't know he went and asked for me. 8 of their beers on tap, 2 guest beers, a few bottles to purchase. Neat places, def check it out if you're in the area. Decent prices.

I went to the Commons yesterday as I was in town for the annual blues festival. I will say I really enjoyed this place -- service was good and friendly, the beers I tried were quite good indeed, and I liked the selection they had of 10 of their beers plus 3 guests.

The space reminds me of an old hangar, with a high roof with exposed rafters. I like the clean but somehow rustic-industrial feel in the place. I will definitely try to return to Commons if I'm in that neighborhood of Portland again.
