This place is a true Portland brewpub...lately a lot of pubs around Portland have been trying to clean up their places and make them have like a modern squeaky clean/stuffy type of an atmosphere...thats cool but to me Portland is a very laid back almost grungy type of a town. This is as laid back and grungy as they come and I love it!! This brewpub is a very large place, lots of tables indoor and outside as well. Dogs are welcome and everytime ive been here there have been many dogs outside in the beer garden. Last time I was there the bartender looked like he was the guitar player for Slayer or Megadeth or something...I think thats a prerequesite for working here maybe. I've never eaten at this place, but their beers are top notch. For a true Portland experience go check out Lucky lab...unless you are somebody that likes to get all dressed up to go to a brewpub, then you may not like it.

A real life Portland hipster will serve you craft beer while ironically wearing a Coors hat.

A Sunday afternoon probably not the best day to review this place. Kinda dead, but slow service. Bought a t-shirt, only to realize when I got home (2000 miles away) it was not the one I had asked for. Great beer selection, nice food. Portland has lots of great choices. Glad I stopped in.

This was stop #25 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon to enjoy their beers and to have dinner. The pub is located in a storefront building along a busy, one-way street, and there is parking in the rear as well at the curb. The interior is a large open area that eliminated any cozy feel that we like in a brewpub setting, but it wasn’t industrial feeling either.

We ordered a sampler flight of 6 of the 12 beers (two of the 12 were also available on nitro/cask plus a guest beer and a cider were listed) plus our food at the counter, and chose to sit on the rear porch (actually, it’s like a big loading dock). We sipped the beer until the food arrived. The beers were all above average to their respective style, and the Superdog IPA was notable as the best of the group. (The Black Lab Stout was not roasty enough for us, but it was still a good beer.) The food menu was typical pub food items, and what we ordered was tasty but nothing exceptional.

This brewpub is worthy of a visit (and a re-visit by us), but there are many others that we would try first before returning here.
