Great beer and good value. I had the 6-beer sampler which is 6 five-ounce pours of pretty much any of the beers you want. Well, they kind of want you to have their four flagship beers in their, but you can definitely pick the remaining two. My favorite was the Aztec and the Cascadian Dark Ale.

The only food we tried was the deep-fried pickles. I was expecting sliced pickles, but they were pickle spears dusted in a seasoned cornmeal mixture. Came with ranch and chipotle dipping sauces. Not too greasy and perfect with beer.

Though it's way-the-hell-far-away from where we live, we definitely want to come back here again to have a proper meal and I want some more of their beer!

this place is awesome, i see why the portland folks are so proud of it, we had a couple of amazing beers here, a blast chatting with the locals, a tasty snack, and overall just a really cool thing they have going on here. busy patio area and a long bar is nearly full as well when we walk in, quite a humble location. this was one of the few portland breweries i knew much about before the trip, since they send so much different beer to colorado. amazing to think it comes from here, although i think they may have a production facility in town too right? huge beer list in here, maybe 15 or more drafts and an impressive bottle list as well. the belly laugh elder flower brett beer was one of the best beers i have ever had in my life, period. i also dug the grapefruity session beer called lunch break, but it was hard to choose just a few in here because they all looked inventive and delicious. we had a little bite to eat in here too which was yummy, but the menu had a lot of enticing options. service was quick for how busy they were, definitely professionals back there e=behind the bar. this place is a portland staple, and its not to be missed when you are hitting the breweries up there. i was amazed how good the beer was, well ahead of already high expectations. that belly laugh was memorable. definitely on my list of places to revisit next time i am up there...

Right in the middle of a neighborhood. I didn't have any expectations going in but left happy and a fan. Beer was good and we took a few home to Ohio. Staff was personable. Seemed like a neighborhood fav...why not given the great beer?!
