Kind of a small brewpub. Not a ton of tables (one bigger area to the left of the door and a smaller to the right) so there was some wait when we went for a table. General brewpub feel with their memorabilia and other art on the walls.
Deschutes isn't one of my "go to" six packs but at the pub everything was really exceptional. In addition to their usual line-up that you can get in bottles there were several pub-only offerings. Champizzle - a pilsner-style finished with champagne yeast was interesting. The Double Black (an imperial version of Black Butte Porter) was phenomenal. I wasn't in a position to take notes or review but the Double Black probably would have been 90+.
Service was a bit of a problem. When at a table, the wait between drink order, food order and food arrival was enormous. Then I had to send something back because it was completely cold. But the next day at the bar, the bartender was on it. Chatting with regulars, answering questions and keeping up on nearly empty pints. Food came super fast at the bar too.
They had about 12 taps which is way more than I expected given their bottle releases.
The food was standard brewpub with few surprises. My Salad at the bar was good and so was the burger when it finally got to my table. Not remarkable, but solid.
