Just went to this place today, I had heard about it and had been meaning to check it out for quite some time. Atmosphere is great, it was real nice outside when i went so they had the doors up with people sitting outside eating and drinking. I sat at the bar and service was great. Had a sampler tray where you get to pick 6 beers. The beers brewed here are for sure different, they like to experiment a bit which is cool. I had the gruit/spruce wheat/IPA/hoppy amber, aztec and saison. All were great but I liked the aztec and spruce wheat the best. I am not much for wheat beers but the spruce added a nice touch. I also had a small sample of their Sazerac beer brewed with star anise...it was ok for a sample...dont think i would like a full pint of the stuff however. The menu was pretty good, I had the fried pickles which i will get those no matter what place has them and a small nacho...both were good. I will go back here again, good place to go to get something you wont find any other place as I said before they like to experiment at Breakside so you are likely to find something different thats for sure.

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...

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?!
