This place is absolutely amazing and is a MUST visit if you are in PDX.

Cool vibe inside, lots of seating outside too. Tap list was great and the bottle list was even better. Service was also great.

Place rocks. Such a sweet selection. They may have multiple taps from same brewery but its a great one. Eg Barley Brown's

Might be the best beer bar I have ever visited. The selection is outstanding - I got to try some of my top 'wants' here including Pliny the Elder. Strong bottle selection and pinball games along with chilled out servers. A must visit in the PDX area.

Probably the best selection of beers you can find under one roof in Portland. A rotating selection of just about everything with an extensive (albeit pricey) list of bottles.

One of the top craft beer bars in all of Portland. Hands down.

Probably my all time favorite bar. Service is often great, but sometimes terrible depending on who's working. Taps and bottle list are consistently amazing.

Really great looking beer bar, love the video boards that kept the selection very up-to-date. Staff knew how to handle a crowd and were all very helpful. Pretty killer selection, good prices and simply a great place to throwndown.

Solid bar. Tap selection one of the best I've seen. Bottles priced very high, but a good selection of whales. A single-guy type bar, not somewhere I would take my wife.

One of the best tap selections in town, but can be a little overpriced.
