We stopped here on our first day in Portland after getting breakfast down the street at Cadillac Cafe, we were the first ones in there at 11 am, ordered a few beers and went to play free pool in the back where there was three tables, a music station, one of the coolest parts about this place and there is free shuffleboard too, cool inside with a sports bar feel, in the middle of an area with lots of good restaraunts, place was kept up nicely and was quite spacious, the bartender was very nice and offered tasters and the whole nine yards, even told us about other cool places around, mostly their beers on tap which are nothing to write home about, honestly the worst Russian Imperial Stout I have ever had but there was some interesting options with Ol' Granny Smith leading the pack, I would go back here but it would be more for the recreational activities than the beer, cool place to hang out and very affordable to boot, worth checking out

Me and a buddy stopped by this place to wait on his GF to get off of work so I got a pint of there IPA and he got there Porter, they had some others but I didnt really pay too much attention to it. The only good thing about this place really was there pints where fairly cheap and they had free pool and shuffle board. Nothing too special. The beer wasn't very good at all IMO but I had been drinking some way kick ass beer all weekend. The service was shit, I heard there food was decent but didn't try it.

Nestled in an older building on busy Broadway, this place is larger than it first appears. There are 8 booths that line the windows. The small bar is in the center and it seats about 10. More booths by the bar and a two semi separated back rooms. High ceilings, lots of windows and plants make this a bright and inviting space. The tables are decorated with a small vase that contains barley sheafs and malts.

Throw in some great music (Dire Straights, Natalie Merchant, Lyle Lovet, Springsteen, Elvis Costello, the Tubes, etc) and some funky art work, a friendly crowd and it adds up to the pleasant atmosphere. Very kid friendly.

They have a decent pub grub menu with some fantastic specials. My chili was very good.

The service was fast and friendly and my waitress could easily describe the beers. Note that the back of the servers shirts feature a design very close to the old BA logo of a hand holding a pint.

They have a great selection - 11 regulars (2 reds, a golden ale, a Wiez, a fruit/wheat hybrid, a Green Apple Ale, Porter, Nitro Stout, Pale Ale, ESB & an IPA) plus 2 seasonal offerings (Maple Vanilla Porter and a Dark Belgian). House beers are 2.75 per glass, 3.85 per pint and a very reasonable 10.95 per pitcher.

They also offer some guest beers, which included Widmer Hefe, Terminal Gravity IPA and a rotating guest tap. They also offer Bud, Bud light (2.95 per pint) and PBR (2.23 per pint).

They have decent sized and very clean washrooms. They also employ the most powerful hand dryer I have ever encountered!

I like their slogan of "Drink the Beer We Make Here". Trust me, its good advice!!

I highly recommend a stop by this friendly and fun brewpub!!
