This was my first stop in my 24 hours of beer blitz in Portland.

Walking in it seemed a little too hip for me. But that was my issue as the folks were friendly and open. The pub has an open sports bar like front area surrounded by retro freezers packed with bottles. The back is taken up by close, cozy wooden booths. Overall there's a retro look with plenty of Schlitz paraphernalia. The whole place takes from the upper midwest with it's food and feel.

I wasn't too impressed with my pasty, though I enjoyed the pickled veggies that came with it. My buddy got the cheese and potatoes, which was amazing.

The server was friendly and open and very knowledgeable. Very excited about local Oregon brews. Once or twice we had to stop her and ask for service or approach the bar, but as soon as we made it clear we were looking for service, friendly service appeared. So it seemed more laid back and chill than negligent or dismissive.

The only downside was they listed Boulevards Saison Brett on the bottle list but had none available. That was alright as she sent me home with a couple bottles of local brews I'd never heard of. The % off for take-out bottles make this a reasonable place for brews.

Saraveza is a must-do for those in the area or visiting.

Had it not been for the rave reviews, I would have walked right by this unassuming looking place that has a rather "dive bar" appeal. Lucky, went in. It is a hybrid that exists somewhere between a deli and your Dad's favorite bar. There is a comfortable, but well-worn, look to it: dated d├ęcor, ragged tables, antique barstools and an ancient bar. But the beer selection is top-notch. The ten drafts included a delicious porter from Melvin Brewing - Wyoming (I think.) Friendly service and some real hearty grub - fried cheese curds - makes for a very pleasant place to quaff brews in a welcoming venue. You can get here by MAX: Killingsworth station and Bus no. 72.

Kind of off the beaten path from downtown Portland. Took a while to get there on the bus. Had a lot of things to try in the store, but also a small (but good) selection of beers to go. Found a MoaS and some nice Hair of the Dog limited releases. A great place to visit if in town. Staff was very helpful.

An awesome little shop / beer bar. Staff was super friendly. Tight selection of bottles and a great looking tap list. Staff was very helpful and did not mind giving us extra glassware for sharing bottle out. Highly recommended.

Not really into Pasties but they were good. The beer selection here is pretty good. Bought a 2009 Stormwatcher here and I have been craving one ever since.

In Portland for the weekend to bring my son to his first year at University of Portland.
Was looking to find a store that I could buy some local/regional craft beer in cans.
The store is a mixture of a store, and restaurant. very good selection of local craft beers especially in cans.
The walls were also full of beer cans, signs etc. A lot to look at while enjoying your beer and food.
I brought my family there for lunch and the food and beer were very good.
Very nice people working there and the know their stuff.
