A sweet space with ample room (multiple rooms) for some groups to hang, super large flight options and a very wide selection of brews though most are of average quality.

Eighteenth stop on the 2017 Summer Fall Beer Trek (#17 was Johns Market, review coming soon!).

8:45 on Sunday night. Largish room, two entrances (one family friendly) as is typical of Oregon. 20 or so four tops, a few booths and room for 20 at the bar. Seating upstairs as well. 22 selections on the blackboard, most are from HUB. Maybe 39 customers total. Seemed like a sufficient number of waitstaff but service was a bit slow (just ordered beer, food is mostly burgers, pizza, sandwiches). Got chatted up by a Cali bro while ordering otherwise seemed to be mostly locals.

I got the pick your own five beer sampler, 3oz pours (Pils, Bitchin Camaro, Gear Up, Kernza Wit, Kiwi Sparkle & Pop). Ten & 15 Beer samplers available as well. Bombers, growlers, 6pks and kegs to go. Beer was good but not great; the Gear Up was tasty.

Their new digs in Vancouver, WA. Late on a Saturday afternoon, before the dinner rush.

We went to Hopworks in hopes to sample their IPAs. What left a bad taste in our mouth before we even got to said beer, was the fact that we couldnt just sample thier 5 IPAs. In fact, in order for us to try the beers we wanted, we had to buy the 15 beer sampler! So, basically we had to get 10 other beers that we had little interest in trying. However,i did end up liking their ESB on nitro, but it didn't blow me away. We thought we would love their Mosaic IPA, but it fell flat. I guess I wanted more flavor, more hoppy "punch". Sadly, for us, none of the IPAs managed to wow us. I doubt we will visit again, when there are so many great breweries nearby. I have to put this brewery in the same category as I do with Rogue... the "chain" craft brewery, that has plenty of options for it's customers, just nothing to write home about.

Hopworks is my most visited brewery. The happy hour is awesome and food is great. They are often extremely busy and arent always able to handle it the best. Another downside is that the beer is always great, never amazing. They offer a few seasonals I am in love with but other than that they offer very few new brews and they are often let downs.

A fairly standard brewpub - it seemed set up decently well for families. We were there at lunchtime on a weekday, so not sure that's the best time to judge vibe.

The beers were all quite good, though the IPAs stood out as being very solid NW IPAs. The variety included some mid-colored beers (winter warmers and amber offerings) as well, so not too bad overall. A little more breadth and depth would go a long way, but you probably won't go lacking for a style you can enjoy unless you really pigeonhole yourself. There were some really good beers, but nothing jumped out as top notch, which is fine.

The service was friendly, though just barely on the side of laid back. The food was tasty, but we had varying degrees of warmth to our party's meals. Hard to judge if this is a consistent thing or a one time thing with only one visit. I think this rating has the best chance for a bump on subsequent visits.

Wanted to try a new place out with the girlfriend and decided on HUB. I had previously only had one of their beers and man was I totally blown away by this place! I was really digging the whole bike motif, something that they include on many of their decorations. They even have a bike bar downstairs in the brewery! The restaurant/bar area is above the brewing equipment, which just looks cool. HUB has definitely incorporated its urban aesthetic inside with all manner of industrial touches. From the beer side, I was very very impressed. We split a sampler of 15 3oz pours for only $12! Got to try nearly everything on the menu and we split a 2010 vintage of their Noggin Floggin barleywine. Everything was very tasty, food included! I'll be making this a priority to return to. An underrated Portland brewery IMHO.

Went here for dinner. Wide selection...I think we had the 18 beer taster. All varieties were offered. For those that we lean towards they were solid. The pizza was very good. Vibe was cool with the bike parts and old beer cans lining the wall.
