Too bad this place closed early last year. One of the best places for good beers and quality dinner in the NW Portland area.

Visited on Thanksgiving and previously during Oakshire beer dinner.

First of all, let's be straight this isn't a beer bar per se, but one of PDX finer restaurants. One of the leaders in farm to table fare, the mussels, wood-oven pizza, and local purveyor pork and beef are among the best in the city. The tap list is relatively small, only 4, but usually features Old Rasputin on cask and of late I've seen Oakshire Big Black Jack, Sierra Nevada Celebration and several local small batch microbeers, $5 a pint. Really nice bottle list, on Thanksgiving I had a Saison DuPont with my Pumpkin/Fatali Pepper Soup and the Duchess with my turkey dinner. Bottle prices are a bit on the high side, I paid $8 for above, but after sticker shock of DC a couple of weeks ago I can't complain.

Very attentive service without being invasive. Nice woodtones throughout, with several private dining rooms, though the main dining room can be a bit loud for conversation (I'd suggest sitting at the chef's counter). One of the highlights are their beer dinners, under the supervision of Executive Sous Chef Paul Kasten, one of the area's more knowledgeable in pairing food with beer. Though I missed out on the Cascade Barrel House dinner, the Oakshire experience was superb, Matt van Wyck brought several one-off small batches to share with an appreciative crowd. If you're looking for a fine dining experience with a nice beer selection, this along with Higgins is at the top of the list. Highly recommended for foodies who love beer.
