First place we went to in Portland. We were there for a late lunch (1pm) and it was fairly dead. Nothing good or bad about the setting. We chose a spot near the street. Service was fine. Nice selection of very drinkable beers. Prices seemed in line. The only thing I would say is that it just does not leave an impression. The beers and food and service were fine, but I just didnít feel much about the place. Perhaps that is a function of the lunch situation....I have no reason to rate this lower than an 80, Iím just saying that something seemed to be missing.

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.

Nice little brewpub way up in NE. Interior was nicely considered and decorated. Not too flashy, but not bare at all. Happy hour prices were incredible deals on large plates of really decent food. Service was so so, but it was a packed house with large crowd for people to sit. Their bear fluctuates in quality quite a bit. Their Pale and Black Stout, Organic IPA and Juniper Porter are all slightly above average, where as their Cream and both wheat ales were really below average. But itís a cool place to check out, and I heard they may open a location downtown and Iíll look forward to that.

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 donít need to go all that far. Still, thereís 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 wonít 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.

Lunch on Saturday afternoon. Food was good and not too expensive, beef a little dry but tasty. Service was brisk and friendly, neither absent nor hovering, they showed respect for our conversations. Only their own beers, but all of them were present. Thereís a little off street parking, but not enough for the businesses. Well worth your time and money.

Small pub in NE Portland. Very nice design on the inside, sort of mix of industrial and new era pub. They had 9 beers and a root beer on tap, sadly the root beer was better then almost any of their beers. The stout and porter were decent. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. The beer sampler was $11 dollars, way the heck overpriced, the food was reasonably priced though.

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.

Atmosphere is cool. Big open warehouse with some nice design elements (booth backs) to make it seem more upscale than beer hall. Would recommend this place for food and drinks, not the atmosphere you want to grab a beer at the bar really. Selection is house beer only, but had at least 8 or 9 taps including the seasonals and nitro rotator. Beer was solid. Nothing really caught my fancy, but the seasonal Bock was good as well as the El Torerro (organic) IPA which was nice and fruity smelling, but a bit too astringent. Waitress was very nice and accommodating. A tad pricey ($10 beer sampler), but I have no complaints.

Really good beer. It was a surprise to find a bock here! The food smelled so appetizing I decided on the calamari, which was some of the best I have had and tender and not chewy. Their selection is not too ambitious and they offer a great selection in my opinion without a disappointment.
