On the heels of lunch somewhere too involved to scribble notes at (It would be nice if you pitched in and lent a hand sometimes). Not sure how this place got on our radar, someboy knew something. We mapped via convoluted GPS (tool of the devil) directions but recovered cutting through a residential complex just behind it. And then Phil vanished to get a smoke (shocker) and I braved the place myself...
It’s new, or newish; don’t know how so, but yes, and they did a nice job of it. Looks like a 3 building structure, or pieces of places expanded into and from. Entry into a smallish room on the end with a straight bar to the rear; pieced plank wood topped, a panel base, and seating for 5 on rectangular stools. Stainless steel bar tower with 12 non descript handles on the bar in front of me. The barback holds a 4 x 6 horizontal mirror strung baby white lighting lined, a wine & cider box in the corner alongside a bunch of wines countered, and glassware shelved below. Tulip & wine glasses dangle from a rack on the underside of the bar overhang, and a long narrow board sits mounted atop listing tap selections in colored chalk.
The walls of wood paneling, all around, but only to 4/5 to the sides, the uppers of a white stucco; the sills lined with growlers and pint glasses, and a brown painted ceiling with blended duct work. Track spots over & behind the bar, and drop bowl lampage otherwise. 4 square tables off the bar; 3 of them to one side below vintage framed city prints of old time Portland. Sasquatch foot mold mounted on the front wall next to sliding windows; one to each side of the doorway and shortys above. Portland, OR, 1881 map on the near wall, an ancient Zenith stand up radio (pretty bad ass), Sasquatch shirts displayed for sale, and a Sasquatch doll in the front corner.
Down a little hallway past look into kitchenings and into the side room; brown & white with framed pics, a board with beerings and cheese & meats, and 10 tables for the sitting at. And through to the side side room, olive with brown trim, 8 tables, a mounted deer head, a single flat screen in the front corner, and a 2/3 wall to the rear partially concealing a peek-a-boo 7 barrel brewing system (I see you back there!) And out front, an awning out front over some of the seating; 4 metal roundies on one end, and 3 wood picnics umbrella’d on the further down.
5 house beers on the sampler (Woodboy IPA, 6.8%, Cascade & Centennial, citrus, pine, floral; Dry Hopped Woodboy IPA, 6.8%, on Cascade, nicely floral, big citrusy mouthful; Untimely Summer Ale, 4.8%, light, crisp, easy, little hop bite; Bertha Brown Ale, 5.3%, roasty, chocolate malt; Healy Heights Pale Ale, 5.6%, which had kicked, so the sampler came with just 4), in little little glasses. The Dry Hopped Woodboy IPA & Bretha Brown Ale were the best of ‘em. And they’ve also got guest taps; 4 regional beers (Upright #4 Saison, Boneyard Diablo Rojo, Terminal Gravity Breakfast Porter, Everybody’s Daily Bread Common Ale), and 2 ciders (Wandering Aengus Apple & Pear).
We didn’t get to the food due to the earlier aforementioned lunch but there were some things that looked real good. Some nice beers, nothing of the suck, anyway. Not overjoyed that they only had 4 of their beers up, but such is OBF weekend, and their website shows 7 house beers at current, just my luck. Still, it's a good chill house. Cool beans.
