A fair amount of space in this little storefront, split across a few sections and outside levels. Place has about 10 taps and a couple refrigerators of bottled beers. One of the outside levels has a platform for bands, and there is a pinball room. The inside will not seat too large a group, but the outside is fairly wide open. We went at mid-afternoon and the place was not busy at all. It picked up a tad before we left in the early evening.

The taps were not overly recognized offerings to me, being from out of town. The bottles ranged from known national brands to recognizable local offerings to some more expensive and rare release bottles. Service was great, but given it wasn't that busy while we were there, it was hard to not be.

This seemed a little more like a neighborhood place with a decent range of offerings, mainly in bottles. We will probably stop by again at some point, and maybe at a busier time so I can update my review.

Cool place, went in to check the bottle selection, which wasn't as large as other locals and was a bit higher priced. But as a bar, I'd definitely check it out. Good vibe with pinball machines and all!

Finally stopped in here a few weeks ago. Nice little place. Kind of a nice local/divey vibe. Great selection on tap. Had PtE and Consecration at reasonable prices. Bottle selection is also very good although maybe not as expansive as some other shops in town. Will definitely be coming back.

Nice friendly and relaxed neighborhood beer bar with a great bottle selection and several rotating taps featuring regional favorites. I had a Big Eye IPA and my wife had a nice Saison from Logsdon. Excellent bar food with in-house smoked meats. The pulled pork sliders, mac and cheese, and coleslaw were all very enjoyable.

I love coming here. It's always very chill and when the weather is nice the outside seating is relaxing. The ever-rotating taps are neat and usually run the gamut from sour to dark, 5% to something they can only serve in a 10 oz glass. The owners are laid back and remember you after only a couple times. The game room is more of a game spare room, but then again you're not going there to play games. The bbq is awesome, homemade bbq sauce.

If only they opened earlier. 3 pm open time usually leaves me waiting and wanting so I go somewhere else.

Overall I would totally recommend trying this establishment

Checked this place out a couple times... great location in NE PDX down the road from Alameda Brewing...

Nice relaxing joint, a lot of places to sit and a nice bar.. pinball machines, and outdoor seating when the weather is kickin'.

They often BBQ which is a specialty of theirs, but I didn't try it the times I frequented.

Great somewhat limited bottle selection, but I am sure that will be changing more and more over time as they get distributors to put them higher up on their lists.

Nice small tap selection.. always some nice local crafts..

The service was good, and most the staff were very cool.. though some a touch snobby and elitist. Some knew the craft, others acted like they did.

Fair prices.. all solid dollar amounts which was cool. Certainly a good joint, and in a good location.. outside of the now congested SE craft realm of craft madness.
