This place cracks me up. The Midwest theme gets me every time. Especially the bathrooms. Cool old fridges house the bottled selection and the tap-list is usually well-managed. The food, well, itís cheap and hearty with a kitsch edge to it.

Interesting little joint. We sat at the bar and had a small session. Selection is very good, I had no need to dip into the coolers for bottles because the tap list was fun but the bottle variety is extensive. I drank a few Berliners and a glass of 2013 Alaskan smoked porter (hel-lo!). Also Hop & Vine is about 10 minute walk down Killingsworth, and it is best to visit both :)

Really cool place with great stiff on tap and in bottle. Employees were knowledgeable and fun to chat with. A nice selection for a all place.

A funky, cool bar for the beer lover a little north of downtown. Itís a long shoebox space with booths and highboys scattered through. But the first thing you notice is the rows of coolers, housing bottles you can order and crack for on-site consumption. Some of the bottle selections are damn good stuff, and thereís also a fair bit of coverage for whatís going on around the Oregon scene in general--so there are a lot of decent everyday beers alongside the fancier stuff.
Prices are good and staff is very nice, but these guys are mostly known for the cool vibe the places carries. They have slick-looking bottle cap art under resin on most of the tabletops, and tons of cool taxidermy and signage on the walls. It feels like it could have been here for 50 years or more. They serve great deviled eggs, which are always a wise choice at midnight after an evening of beer. Thereís a back room where they host special events (beer dinners and the like), and it always feels like people are having plenty of fun here. Iíll definitely be back more often when in town.

Great bar in a progressive Portlandy neighborhood. The atmosphere is a bit rough around the edges (hell, they keep Hammís permanently on one tap.): brick and wood and scuffed up bar stools. Loud laughter and conversation between the staff and patrons. 10 taps, all NW stuff (most of it fairly different from what might appear at say Belmont Station or Baileyís Taproom), except for the Hammís. Samplers available: five generous pours for $8.50. 200+ bottles, some vintages, some six-pack stuff. Friendly, quick, no-nonsense service. Limited food menu. Their specialties are pasties and smoked meats. In fact, youíll probably leave the place with the scent of sausages or bacon on your clothes. I had the half pasty and bowl of soup, both very good. Recommend this bar highly

Very nice and comfortable local pub. Only 10 taps but tons of bottles at a very good price. Service was good, but for a small place I wouldnít expect less. Food was a bit disappointing, had the pastie and it was a bit dry and for the price it should have blown my socks off. Worth the trip out of the core.

Visited December 12 2013. Nice place pretty far away from downtown. "Only" 10 taps but every beer was quality. Bottle selection in fridges was impressive and prices very low. Food and service better than average. I just wish I could have this kind of place in my neighborhood in Finland.

Just loved this place. Very well staffed and comfortable. Carefully picked bottles. Easy conversation. Relaxing. Mostly local brews. Pretty much perfect.
