Kind of an odd little place - great to see a building reclaimed from obscurity and probable demolition. A little hard to find and parking was limited and not obvious. Quite dingy and poorly lit with everything jammed into small quarters. If the garage door hadn't been open, it would have been depressing. Seemed like a pretty local hangout - got the "ya'll ain't from around here" feeling when walking in the door, but the brewer was very friendly and appreciative of the positive comments on the one beer he had left. It looked like it had been a long day. Worth the stop just for the Machine Czeck Pils - I thought this was an outstanding example of the style. So I scored the selection a 3 - not sure what o make of the fact that they only had one beer available, but small place with limited capacity - not sure what else to say about that. If they only make one beer at a time, that's all they can serve...

Cool little spot tucked away beyond a few other building in an industrial area just outside of downtown. Warehouse building with a few garage bay and a couple dozen picnic tables between inside and out. About 11 beers on tap, the 2 I had were solid.

This place is great! Fun games, and dogs allowed. Chill people, too. Beers focus on lagers, but lots of limited stuff is also on tap most of the time. Worth the trip.

Stopped here in the middle of a summer thunderstorm around 130PM. Entered through the back end of the brewery where the entire wall opens up, creating a cool vibe in the midst of torrential downpour. Vibe at the time was subdued as there were only a handful of others in the tasting room space. Great view of the brewing operation on the right side with a large tasting space to the left in front of the bar.

Presentation of the space was expected for the vibe I think they are capturing - recaptured industrial space with a tasting room/bar/brewery multi-use feel.

Quality of the brews was above average with the Czech Pils, Machine, highlighting the tasting flight. Amongst the rest, Terrarium was notable.

Service was good for the minimal interaction we needed after ordering a full flight of brews.

Selection of brews seemed to be bunched in two categories - pils/lager and ipa renditions with their Trashmaster stout rounding it out. I would have liked to try the canned brown ale available for drinking in the tasting space but ran out of time.

Overall - a great brewery/tasting room space available that I'm sure sees much more traffic in better conditions and at traditionally busier times (not on a Tuesday afternoon).

A quick beer grab stop-in before leaving beautiful Portland. The vibe was relaxed and friendly, the service was super nice and informative. Selection was slightly limited with 4 taps and 3 or four more canned to go options but the quality is rather excellent. Next time I'm in Portland I will stop by for a much longer visit.

Bunker is stand alone building, think small garage with brewing equipment in it. Huge outdoor patio space. In the same area as Rising Tide, so not that good. A few beers on tape but cheap tasters and there were selling cans to go. Weirdly cool vibe in this place.

This is a small little building that looks like it may have been an old garage. Dark woods inside make the place a bit darker than other places. Brewery equipment fills every space. Only three beers on draft but all were good. It was nice and quiet until a beer tour bus arrived with 15 people, and then it felt a bit too crowded for the space. This is a unique space out of the normal tourist downtown Portland area, but worthy of a long walk or short cab ride since Rising Tide is right around the corner.
