Slabtown site: Awesome first impression with the outside mural and architecture. Same inside with very simple but impressive modern and elegant designs.

Very friendly hostesses sat us immediately, and some one gave us just the right amount of time before ordering some samples, then ultimately our beers. A Stay West IPA and a Chunky Monkey BA Stout for the Mrs. and I to share. Both were outstanding.

Split the fish and chips which was good, but ultimately we came here for the beers and the vibe and they were both outstanding. Can't wait to go to Dekum down the street from my house next! Cheers.

Stopped in at their Milwaukie tap room for a quick pour. Definitely a popular spot, but was able to find a seat and service was quick. Really solid selection on the board with lots of variety. Been a fan since they started distributing in my area and wasn't disappointed by what I got. My only complaint is that when I was there they were blasting music pretty loud, and I like my music loud. But, there were 2 big lovey golden retrievers hanging out with their owners so that totally took my mind off of it. I'd love to go back and spend some time exploring more of their offerings.

15th stop on the 2017 West Coast Beer Tour (Oct 11). 22nd & Raleigh location. Looks almost brand new.

High ceilings, smallish late lunch crowd on a Wednesday. Industrial but nice decor. Doesn't seem to be dog friendly. A dozen or so Breakside beers on tap, half of which are made in house here. Small food menu, I had the bratwurst sandwich. Beers are $6-7/pint or six 5oz samplers for $12. Merch & beer to go. Decent service.

Breakside was a bit of a letdown in terms of selection as their board had been cleared out of all but their flagship IPA the evening of my visit. In terms of hoppy beers that is. Service was top notch. Try the house made habanero ketchup. Hope to return and spend some more time here on my next Portland visit.

One of Portland's newer additions to their substantial beer scene, Breakside has three locations; this one on Dekum, is an open and rather atmospheric venue with a sleek wooden bar and a nice patio, where patrons can admire the quiet neighborhood. Breakside Dekum offers a large array of taps - and bombers to go (I took home two.) During my lunchtime visit, I enjoyed a pint of Lunchbreak Session, a tasty IPA and their hearty stout. Though somewhat out of the way, it is accessible by Portland's wonderful bus system - in this case, Bus 75. Excellent. Hope to try the other two locations in a subsequent trip (or two.)

Portland, OR has many breweries within the city limits. Of those which have a place to enjoy a pint, I have been to thirty-nine of them. Without a doubt Breakside is the best. From the beers ( all delicious, many the best of their style in town), to the food, to the vibe, they have no equal. If you live here, or are just visiting, you must come here. See Portland at its best.

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...
