The commons is yet another awesome brewery to hit on the east side of the willamette. The cool thing about the commons is their tasting room, they just have some barrels setup around their brewing facility where people stand around the fermenters and enjoy some of the best Belgian style beers in the Northwest. They have a similar feel to Upright in my opinion, both are 2 really great Portland breweries. They have bottles for sale at the brewery which may be a tad cheaper than you can find them around town. Overall their prices are a bit high but like most Belgian style breweries this is the case. One of my favorite breweries on the east side of the river.

This was stop #24 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. The brewery is located in a quiet industrial neighborhood (Sunday), and the taproom and brewery are in a partitioned area of the building from other businesses, and the brewing equipment is right there with you while drinking the beers that were brewed in these vessels.
We ordered a sampler of 4 of the 8 beers that were listed (a GF beer and a cider were also listed). There is no seating here, so comfort is not part of the experience. The beers are all European styles (farmhouse to classic German styles and an Oatmeal Stout), and each was brewed very well to the right characteristics for each. It would have been enjoyable to try others but the lack of seating was a hindrance to our old bones, so we left to go to the next place on our pub-crawl.
