This place has a fantastic beer list that is regularly rotating, so everything is really fresh. They've got amazing beers from amazing NW and West-coast breweries, plus selections from across the country and the world (particularly Belgium and Germany).

Good events and good atmosphere. We went on a Sunday, when they have Bluegrass music. Nice, low-key vibe.

Service was a bit "laid back" (i.e.- slow).

Food is quite pricey. Like $8 for chicken wings! Or $5 for a fairly small paper cone of Belgian-style fries, which weren't really Belgian-style. They were pretty damn good, but not "Belgian". The beer is also a bit pricey at $4.75 for a pint or a higher-octane 8 oz glass. Not extortionate, just a little more expensive than other places.

Definitely a good place to go if you love beer and want to try a bunch of different kinds. These guys know what they're doing when it comes to keeping the quality high and the beers fresh.

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.
