If you can find this place, stop by and grab something to eat and a Drifter on tap.
Get the Beer Cheese Soup as a starter, even if you do not normally like cheese or soup, you like beer, right? Try this and thank me later.
This is as close to a German Gasthaus as one can find anywhere outside of Germany, this is truly a great place to eat despite what your feelings are towards the Craft Brew Alliance or whatever they call themselves these days.
Drifter is what got me drinking craft beer and it is what made me want to come here 2 years ago to see what the Widmer boys could cook up for us.
My wife and I both got the pork schnitzel which was a healthy portion even if you ignored the local mushrooms and other sides that came with it. We actually brought our leftovers home and had them for breakfast the next day, notice the recyclable container they give your for your take home, gotta love Portland.
If I didn't have to drive home I would have had 2 more pitchers of Drifter, it was that damn good.

I have always enjoyed Widmer beers, but this is my first time actually visiting them in Portland. Walking in, service was immediately present and ready to seat us at the bar. Bartender was also very friendly and happy to answer my questions on picking up a couple bottles of the recently released Old Embalmer Brothers' Reserve beer. The general environment inside was cozy and inviting, giving off the feel of an older establishment that's been around for a while. I ordered a glass of the Pitch Black IPA and had the hummus plate starter. Both reasonably priced and very good. The tap selection, assuming you're there to drink Widmer beers, is excellent. Pretty much every beer they have out on the market you can get there fresh in a glass. Definitely recommend visiting this pub if you're in Portland and take the brewery tour if you have the time (I did not).

Visited here with a friend a few weeks ago to catch up. It was during the dinner rush and I think it was right before a blazer game, so it was a little busy. I think we waited about 25 minutes for a table. Server was nice, genaerally helpful, disn't ask her many beer questions, though I think she did make a suggestion to my friend. I had a sampler of 5 or 6 beers. There were at least 15 beera to choose from. As with a sampler, most of the beers were good, one of two were lacking. There are not a lot of really big beers available, but when it comes to pairing beer with food there are lots of options. I had a burger that was decent, didn't blow my socks off, but i've had a lot of burgers in my life. Price was Just above average, but you are gatting a pretty decent meal.
