Visited on a Monday afternoon in November 2015. Large industrial style establishment. Great long bar, some pinball machines and a shed load of decent beer from OR and mostly local states. Boneyard and Russian River beers on draft is always good. Decent prices. Great bar. Must visit if in Portland.

One of the elite beer joints in the country. Crazy big tap list. $1 tasters. Huge collection of rare bottles to buy - expensive but available. Awesome.

Visited midday on a Wednesday. Very close to The Beer Mongers on a bust section of SE Division Street. New looking place with an enormous patio out front with tons of picnic tables, with more bike racks then I have ever seen in one place. The interior features 2 big garage doors that open to the patio, along with a pinball room, a few tables and seats at the bar. 50 or great beers on draft along with 250 bottles (also available to go). The website was perfectly up to date, which is always appreciated. Interesting music playing, though a bit loud inside, despite the sparse crowd. There is a burrito place next door that people were ordering from. This seems to be focused on being the local for the independent bike culture. As noted by others, cash only.

82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Visited here during RBSG 2015 with Ferris, brokensail and other RBians. Great lineup of taps mostly local and ALL quality, excellent bottle list, chill vibe with plenty of outdoor seating. I look forward to returning some day! Bring cash-- no cards accepted.

Lots of space inside and outside on the big patio. The tap selection is amazing. Not just quantity but quality. Had some beers I’ve been looking for for some time. Very friendly service and reasonable prices. This is one of the places I would like to visit again... and again... and again.

Big patio, pinball machines, long bar with plenty of room. Large tap list with a great selection. Service was fast and friendly. Sort of a punk rock vibe. Lots of ipas.

I like the bars in quiet neighborhoods, in the summer the patio is very enjoyable. They have so many good beers on tap that I didn’t even check thoroughly the bottles, but apparently there is some special beer from many places, some from Europe, many sours from Trinity, some HOTD etc… I don’t know if it’s always the case, but I could get 3oz pours of every beer, which is lovely, and for a reasonable price; friendly service. Will visit for sure when back in Portland. WiFi available.

Pretty fun stop during CBC week. Cash only. Lots of taps and lots of good beers on. Fun atmosphere with an outdoor patio. I could definitely spend a few hours their at it is definitely worth the stop. I get a bit of a Toronado vibe (in the music selection and cash only), but the beer lines are cleaner and it is less cramped.

First off: CASH ONLY! They do have an ATM here, but you will be charged $3, though if you bring the receipt up to the bar, they will give you $1 off your next order.

Obligatory stop in Portland. Not the hugest interior to this place with maybe a couple dozen seats at the bar and some small standing area. Mostly an outside place with a number of long communal tables.

The draft list is pretty huge and during my visit, almost all Oregon beers including a huge emphasis on hoppy beers. Lots of Boneyard IPAs in particular. Nice! Great bottle selection as well and the bottles are pretty reasonably priced. Just about all the draft beers are $5 with some pour sizes varying depending on the beer.

Between Ferris, Duffman, myself, and my other So Cal non-degenerate ticker friends, we did some serious damage here and had a great time.
