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.

There's a reason this place has featured in BA mag. A beautiful establishment in a now-hip area of Portland. As a native Midwesterner, I felt right at home here - the proprietor is a Wisconsin native and the featured menu item is pastys (look it up). A very nice bottle selection - I walked outta there with a one-off bomber from Gigantic Brewing, if that tells you anything. During your PDX beercation, you will go here. Yes you will !

Best beer bar in PDX and I'm lucky enough to live within walking distance. Excellent selection of beers, both American and elsewhere (lots'a Belgians!). Never had pasties before, now I'm in love. The service is the best I've experienced ever (not just bars; ANYWHERE!) and I think they / the servers have the awards to prove it, so it's not just me.

Other than it being a Green Bay Packers hangout (I'm a Niners Fan), this place was everything you'd expect from a Portland hole-in-the-wall pub. I loved every bit of it, from the bottled beer selection, to the 8 taps to the Pasty lunch that we had. The food was phenominal. The pickled veggies were off the chart fantastic. The pastys were amazing. A must try in North Portland.

I never spend too much time here, but I do pop in at least a couple times a month to see what bottles they have. They have a pretty decent bottle selection, small but there is always something that I like or want to try in the case.

They're pretty sneaky from what I've gathered. There's sometimes something aged in the case that they've brought out from their cellar, but there is usually only one or two bottles of it in the case. Except when they sell what's in the case sometimes two more magically fill the case again...my sense of urgency has gotten the better of me on more than once. I'm on to you Saraveza, I'll probably still feel like I need to buy that bottle but I'm on to you!

I found a 2009 North Coast Old Stock Ale last month.

A: Pretty cool place settked in a residential spot much like most Portland area bars. The decor os rather interesting to say the least. Pretty laid back vibe. You can definitely tell the owner is from Wisconsin.

Q: The beer and food I had was quality but the Jalapeno poppers gave me severe heartburn for hours despite Rx strength medication

S: Nice, prompt with no issues attitude or slowness

S: Draft list was pretty boring but the bottles were nice. I snagged a Blend Love during my visit

F: Pretty good
