Went to this place while up in Washington. It was recommended to me by the guy that works at "By The Bottle". Very cool guy that recommended some cool stuff. This place was really cool. Good atmosphere, people outside sitting at picnic style tables, barbecues going, music playing. Pretty good beer too. I really liked their IPA they had and the porter was really good too. The bartender chick was pretty cute and she gave me one free beer. I found it interesting that they did not sell any of their beer bottled. If you wanted beer to go, they served it to you in a 1 liter mason jar. I have never seen that before, pretty cool.
I really liked this place, the building was basically a shack with picnic tables inside and was extremely packed when we visited. The service was very prompt, and it probably helped that one of my friends knew one of the bartenders. The beers were so-so outside of the Copacetic IPA, which was delicious. Our group of four made fast friends with some ex-pats and had a fantastic conversation with them for about 45 minutes. Very laid back vibe, Iíd go back anytime.
This place is on Mississippi Street so you know it is a very hipster location. The beer is delicious, the service is friendly but you must order at the bar. The food is simple, mostly sausage, but goes great with a beer or three. Amnesia can get quite packed so going on an off night/hour or a nice day when you can sit outside is best.

Cold draughty warehouse of a room. I cannot understand the fashion for turning such into eating and drinking places. Order at the bar and service is quick and friendly. Food menu lifited, but very well prepared and they make their own wors. Prices very reasonable. Go on a warm sunny day.
Our stop here on a brewpub crawl in Portland was poorly planed, since we got here before opening hours, which during weekdays isnít before 4 PM. But luckily for us they were brewing and I was in a group of brewmasters, so we were let into the brewery and given a brief introduction to the brewery and the opportunity to sample their beers. The brewery is set in a shack, but the brewery itself is iin really good condition. The bar area reminds me of a saloon, lots of wood and picnick tables. I got 5 new ratings here.
First impression is this place seems pretty cool, but- going inside the first thing I notice is the odd layout. The order here sign beckons you to squeeze past the people sitting at the picnic table about 2 feet in front of the bar and then again to squeeze past the line of people queued alongside aforementioned picnic table, this time with your sloshing beers. The actual bar service was quick and very adequate. Selection of house beers was good. A couple of IPAs (the Desolation was pretty drinkable) and a really drinkable Pale Ale (Dusty Trail). The porter needed work, very acrid. Overall, a nice place despite the somewhat hipster scene- outdoor area was more laid back than the inside coffee-shop feel. Plus- pretty flowers on table Minus- T-shirts not available in XL.
A pretty cool place, unpretentious, corrugated metal building, food cooked on a grill outside. Tap selection is mainly house beers, I believe they had one guest tap on. Beers were fairly solid, snausage was good. Prices are reasonable. Decent place to go.
Casual is the best term to describe this place. I liked it very much. I love drinking beer in a working brewery. Others have reported here that the beer was not all that memorable. I disagree. I had an IPA that was exceptional. Again, this place is casual and you should not expect anything fancy. Just good beer in a relaxed, neighborhood atmosphere.
Killer place with old school jazz playing in the background. The bartender was off lighting candles everywhere when I walked in. Bags of various brewing materials daunt the dining room. YOu can bring in your own vinyl, so I requested some Coltrane and that was cool to sit and drink some good quality beers and listen to soothing jazz. No one is going to bother you here, drink until dismay and no one will blink an eye. They have a more than adorable bartender and did I mention the great jazz, how cool is that? Or it could have just been I was hammered by the time I left here, who knows
