Large, bright and clean indoor eating area, food centers on seafood which was pretty tasty, though dish prices are a bit pricey for nothing more than being an upscale-looking place. The beer is fantastic, and anyone who is visiting Portland should put Alameda on their list.

Visited on Tuesday 11/11/14 around 4pm.
The venue was fairly quiet when we arrived but business began to pick up as dinner time neared.
The place is a medium sized venue with a tall ceilingm slab floor and metallic toppings on the tables. On the right as you enter are some fairly swanky booths, surrounded by tall wood backing.
Large hessian rugs adorn the walls above these booths depicting brewing related patterns such as barley and hops. Brewing kit also visible.
Beer wise there were 10 on tap, all available in tasters.
Service was prompt and friendly.
Beers were adequate but no greats, my ratings averaged at 3.07 which puts these guys above the mom and pop diner brewpubs but a fair distance short of the better ones. Columbia River where I visited beforehand averaged at 3.34.
Overall a nice facility but the beers were pretty mediocre.
Not a go to venue but if in the area and time allows why not.

This pretty far brewpub was on the hit-list for its excellent Black Bear stout I tried at GABF a couple of years back. I was happy to try their almost as satisfying IPA. On the other hand, it represents a considerable detour in a city where you don’t need to go all that far. Still, there’s a bus stop right in front, so we made it on a saturday night. At 10pm, the 2 of us consisted of 40% of the customers. Depressing. More depressing even are the looks of the place. Ugly and cheap metal walls that reminds of the very old and rusty dull silver campers contaminate the bar area while those ugly designer wooden benches that rise 4 meters in the air look alien. The high ceilings and dark atmosphere are not helping while the staff felt disgusted when we inquired on their closing time and they revealed they had to keep on until midnight. I certainly won’t be back. Good stout, but bottled and good IPA, but plenty of others around town. I simply did not want to stay for a second beer.

Huge venue. Bar must be over 50 feet long. Good service. Warm, not drafty. 10 beers on the sampler tray. Bottles to go. Beers are good.

A great place. Hey the huge Hop on the outside was awesome to see. It was an old warehouse made in to a killer brew pub. Loved the atmosphere. The beer was great and the food was above the rest and finally great service in a brewpub. This was a great time for us all. 10 samples on the sampler tray to try. The parking at times can be a tad hairy and they have a huge kids area so it is cool to bring the little ones.

Some OK beers but I wasn’t too impressed. I did think that the atmosphere was pretty cool. I would include it on a Portland beer tour in you’re hitting breweries east across the river from downtown.

The brewhouse is placed in the restaurant with the tanks in the back. The pub is quite large, and modernly decorated with use of stone and light wood, and with lots of booths. The service was good and friendly. 8 beers on tap when I visited.

Visited while roadtripping through Oregon and Washington. Nice atmosphere, big open room. The food menu looked really good, but we were only drinking. I would say that the beers were mainly pretty average. I would recommend hitting Alameda if you are doing brewery tours east of the river.

Hey this is a swanky joint. Great beer and food. Had a hell of a time finding it. But then I didn’t have my phone to help me.

This was pretty hard to find at first. There's about 3 different alameda establishments right in this block. Inside it's very open with lots of seating. You can see the bar, the entire brewery, the kitchen, everything from almost every table in the place. It was clean and well decored. The service was awesome (and attractive) with a good supply of beer. The beer selection was phenomenal with some cask offerings as well as their usual line up of award winning stuff. The food was typical and average for a brewpub restaurant, so that means it was still pretty good. I liked this place a lot.
