Super friendly, great beer, great vibe, great bottle selection, great people to meet. This is one of the best beer places I have ever been to. Go here, there is no possible way you will regret it.

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.

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 !

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.

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.

Wonderful place! Just a few mins walk from the train stop. I was fortunate to have arrived during an IPA draft special wherein they had something like 5-7 IPA's on tap. Sampler was nice and allowed me to try nearly all of them.

Good representation of regional beers, especially hoppy stuff.

Service was impeccable & friendly beyond expectations. I wish more people were like this in the service industry. Our pasties were tasty and the fruit appetizer was interesting as well.

There's a lot of character in this place.

The bottleshop/tap room combo is catching on, with Portland boasting several now. This place has all the charm of a local pub; it's both intimate and lively and the staff does a good job making sure you drink good beer and eat well. The menu shows a number of items, besides their signature pasties, both veg and non-veg. They boast a great selection of local beers on tap, and if that's not enough for you there's a great bottle selection in the beer chests. As I said, this is a neighborhood pub, so I'm happy that a Portland visitor like myself ended up here because enough Portland beer-heads told me to check this place out.

Went to Saraveza a while back for a few beers, they were having a can release party that night for Fort George Brewing and the place was pretty hopping. Tons of midwestern memorabilia line the walls...im a Packer fan so that was kindof cool as they had several pro-Cheesehead items around. There are several large coolers full of a pretty decent variety of beers. Not many beers on tap but the ones on tap were beers that you probably wont find that many other places other than there. I didn't try any of the food as i had just eaten before I went but the food smells and looks great so I want to go back and give that a try. Overall one of my new favorites in Portland.

Man I love Saraveza. This is one of the best places in town. First off, the space is great with a few booths, a nice centrally located bar, and some high tables. The bottle selection is pretty amazing as well. They keep a nice accurate chalkboard taplist in several places around the place, and they generally have one of the better taplists in town. Now for the best part, the service at this place is UNBELIEVABLE. This has to be the nicest, happiest set of servers at any beer place I frequent. Always in a good mood and making jokes, very friendly and open, not snobby in the least but they DEFINITELY know their stuff. For the non-geeks they could not be more helpful and chill, and happy to pour as many samples as it takes. They've got a TV for some sports occasionally. What a wonderful spot.

Big fan of this place. Owners were working on the Sunday morning when I went and they were super friendly and knowledgeable.

Selection is excellent, particularly for this Californian. Went with some friends to watch a Packers game, which they specialize in showing on Sunday mornings, and we were able to buy many various single bottles and share them throughout the day. Tap list was also very nice. Prices definitely worked for me.

Sort of the progenitor of City Beer Store and Beer Revolution down here in the bay area.

I dug the atmosphere and I'm sure I'd dig it even more on a non football game day. Regardless, it was great.

Definitely a great spot at which to have a couple beers or pick up some random bottles to take home.

Can't comment on the food, as I didn't try any of it, but I know they do have a menu that people seemed to be enjoying.
