A nice little place just over the bridge in east Portland on Burnside (that's easy to remember). Some outside tables and a rather large inside area for a craft brewery. Food? I'm not sure...I stayed outside to drink.

Got the flight of all nine beers. Service was good, but a tad absent. This could be due to a large group inside. Not a big deal, but it left some wonderings. Good stuff in them there glasses. Not a bad price either.

I think this is a close-to-must-stop in Portland. Not the best stuff, certainly not the worst, but the location is great (with several hotels within about 4 blocks radius). Fo' sho' I will return when I'm back in Portland

what an enjoyable experience! tucked away in a more or less residential area, this is a cozy little neighborhood gastro brewery, with some really cool beer and delicious food. smaller inside, but they have a large picnic table patio set up on the side with plenty of seating, hops growing tall, and a cozy garden vibe out there. they had a decent lineup of beers covering a range of styles, but the india red ale was my favorite of the ones we had hands down, oozing hops with a nice toasty malt backbone, it really was fantastic. we dug the sweet heat too, with scotch bonnet peppers. we only shared one appetizer, a spicy cauliflower, and it was incredible. inventive and flavorful, fresh and spicy, we loved it. the other food leaving the kitchen looked rockstar as well. our service was exceptional, friendly and chatty, helpful with our trip planning, and just a woman with a genuinely happy disposition. an extremely comfortable place to sit outside and slug back a couple of beers. one of the best vibes of any brewery we visited in oregon on our trip...

Went here with my girlfriend for a few drinks before New Year's Eve festivities. A few drinks turned into a full sampler of their menu but it was WELL worth it, especially at the price! A very modern and simple feel, with the walls displaying various local art and memorabilia. Big TVs on the wall you could see from any angle and plenty of natural daylight pouring in. The staff was quick and courteous and offered suggestions based on what we liked and didn't like. Despite not having had many Burnside beers previously, we really liked it! Their seasonal selections especially were fantastic. Sweet Heat and The Duke of Earl Grey stood out the most as unique and tasty brews. Oh, and having your own parking lot is clutch!

Pretty good spot that we checked out for dinner on the first night of a recent PDX trip.

Vibe is pretty simple inside, low key with not a ton of decorations. Was busy and fairly loud too.

Quality is in general is good. I had a hoppy Pale Ale with dinner that was a solid B. I've tried others in the past that have been tasty as well.

Our service was decent. Slightly slow, but generally pleasant.

Selection was the standard lineup, and a handful of one offs.

Food was quite good, one of the better brewery meals I've had in sometime.

All in all? Pretty nice place, glad I checked it out. You can probably visit a few better places, but easily could do worse.

Great vibe ad unique crowd. Very diverse mix of people all there to enjoy some brews. I went about 4/5 in the afternoon. I ate the Cohiba. Excellent!! First time eating bacon ash. Bartender was attentive and ad some good conversation with a fellow bar mate. Great selection of beers.

Beers ranging from 3/5 to 5/5, with some unique offerings. Adult food offerings are too expensive for what is delivered, though the kids menu offerings are reasonable and more than sufficient.
