A cool stop on Commercial Street . We stopped in late afternoon/early evening and were able to snag a table for our party of 8. Loved the cool hangout vibe. Beer was very good with a wide variety. They also have a diverse house made spirits program but we did not try any. Service was a bit slow but the place was pretty crowded. i'd stop in anytime for a couple of beers.

Feels like a night club. We went after a late dinner and the place was dead at 11pm. Beers were hit or miss, but pretty solid overall. Real dark interior.

I just had the worst service of my life in this place. Sitting at the bar having a beer while my wife was shopping. She came in and sat down. They were busy, but not overly so. The bartender went by many times over the next ten minutes ignoring her while she tried to order a beer. When he finally brought her one she commented on the slowness of the service. He proceeded to pick up the beer and take it away. There are too many other good places in Portland to go instead of this place. It's a shame because my beer was quite good.

This is a large bar / restaurant that has a nice patio out back. Glass behind the bar shows some of the brewing and distillery equipment. About 10 beers on draft including some sours, triple IPA, and brett beers. The beers were good and well crafted. Service was very knowledgeable but it was a bit slow because this place was packed on my two visits. Overall this was a great stop and would visit again on a future trip.

Big, loud place, feels more like a nightclub than a brew pub. Had a solid selection , beers were OK. Not great, not bad. Bartender was very friendly and service was great. Probably wouldn't go back, but glad I stopped to check it out.

Have been here multiple times before the name change, had apps and beer yesterday at a high top table before a concert. Place was very crowded. The atmosphere is nice, kind of industrial and hip. They went with a style and it works. Service does a nice job making sure you get what you need even when crowded. The beer is good to so-so overall but I really enjoyed the Cannonball pale ale. Bright and easy drinking. Food has been well made and the menu has many interesting choices. Their cocktails are also top-notch and made with care and precision. I recommend the Garden Party. Distill their own spirits, which are available for purchase retail.
