Went there on the reccomendation of a friend. Coicidentally it was a few blocks away from a friend's house where I was staying. The space was HUGE. It reminded me a bigger version of SF's Ziegiest, as far as space goes. I must gave come on a slow night, the place was reletively empty and there seemed to be a lot of staff for such a slow night, nonetheless, they were friendly, and one guy even commented on my YOB shirt. The beer selection was overwhelming. 39 beers split between to sets of bars. Both bars had the selections written on a white board and numbered. It was a little tacky, but the beer is gonna be doing all the talking. I was glad to see a lot of oregon beers represented along with a few other selections. First choice of Hopworks IPA, spectacular. This place definitely did a good job repesenting the state's beer talent. It's for sure a little daunting to walk in a see so many selections and limit yourself to just a few. They also provided a few board games and such. Didn't try the food. I like the set up, just wish it wasn't so dead.

They ran out of pint glasses so we got a random assortment of stemware. Bar itself didn't do much in terms of character, and my first beer was such a dud I was questioning the quality. Fortunately turned out to be a meh beer not a quality control issue.

The Green Dragon is one of my favorite beer bars in Portland. Despite consistently having 55+ beers on tap and dozens more available in bottles/cans, they don't attract quite the crowds that places like Horse Brass or Belmont Station do. If you want to spread out or even play a board game at your table, that will fly here.
They have a small production brewery that is used by both Buckman Botanical Brewery and Green Dragon Brew Crew use (expect 5+ of their beers to be on tap at all times). They are also owned by Rogue, so expect to see some Rogue presence (products for sale, beers on tap, etc.).

So it's the Green Dragon pub with the Buckman Brewery inside of it and it's apparently all owned by Rogue? Well whatever it is, it was great. Great environment, selection, knowledgable bartenders. I dig it

What you can expect: Some good beers and some mediocre ones. Rogue's usual sub par service.

About 55 brews on tap with six or so of them brewed in-house. Great and varied selection. Good service and nice place with beer memorabilia all over the place. Well worth stopping in and grabbing a few.
