Maybe my favorite beer bar ever.
A true-to-style, dark, grim English pub with lots of sitting space, a huge bar, and a ridiculous tap selection. The beers featured come from all over, though there seems to be an eye to beers from Oregon and NoCal. The menu also features a good, rotating variety of cask ales. I had two Walking Man beers--the Black Cherry Stout and Homo Erectus--both of which were excellent and properly served.
The service was prompt and very friendly (she was even happy to give us directions to other beer bars around Portland), the food was tasty and cheap (brie, roasted garlic, and baguette for under $4), and the ambience was made for drinking. The only downside is the smokiness, but by the time I left, my head was spinning from all the great things about Horse Brass, not the second-hand smoke.
A must visit beer bar for anyone anywhere in the US. Make the pilgrimage.
