My friend/roomie is a Scotch connoisseur. I think he had an orgasm in this place, as he dished out, I believe, about 12$ for a shot of some exquisite Scotch whiskey that he said costs about 400$ a bottle. So, if you're looking for good Scotch in PDX, this is probably your place. Quite an impressive beer selection as well. I'm not an expert on British pubs, but this place seemed damn authentic. We walked outta there speakin' in Cockney accents. This is one of those places where you can walk in, sit down, & drink, and it seems as though the outside world has disappeared, and that's a good thing. Should be on your list of "go-to's" when visiting PDX.

Around the corner from Belmont Station, we all walked down to Horse Brass to drink a couple of beers before dinner at Roe on Division. The Brass looks like a rural British pub, takes me back to those lovely trips through the English countryside with the wife, stopping at small places like this one for a cask ale and some rustic fare.

Only here the beer selection, while geared towards the UK and British styles, includes many great examples of American craft, including a good number of Oregon/Northwest beers.

They have 4 casks, no less, and also Hair of the Dog Blue Dot, Pliny the Elder and Blind Pig, Ft George Vortex, Migration Black IPA, Walking Man Black Cherry, Boneyard Hop, Breakside Salted Stout, Laurelwood Goose... a bit too IPA-focused for my tastes, and not enough big beers. But it ain't bad, that's for sure.

Prices are good, I paid $7.25 for a pint of Pliny that seemed to be 20 ounces. Other beers are between four and six dollars. Service wasn't so great, even though we were at the bar...

Didn't try food but it looked like typical pub food, fries and fish and chips and stuff. I think I would come back here for the atmosphere, so cozy and warm, but would go elsewhere for beer.

An old standby that you absolutely should visit if you’re in portland, but I don't know if it would be on my short list if I only had, say, one night in town. Given two or three, though, visit here. There’s a beautiful old wooden bar, an awesome beer selection, and a great respect for beer here. It feels a bit less hipstery than some of the other places because it's been around for a very long time.
