Bitchiní bee haul with a huge patio. Incredible tap selection. Didnít even get to investigate the bottle list as we were having way too much fun.

Great selection of taps and hard to get bottle. But pretentious in service and customer interface.

Surprised I hadnít rated... went 3 times on a week trip to Portland. The list is fantastic for an east coaster (and Iíd assume generally). Russian Rivers, one-offs, seasonals, all the locals - never got a chance to explore the bottles - but didnít need to with the tap list. Cash only, but no biggie. The bartenders were a bit standoffish at first, but talked it up after a bit. Knew their shit. Big wide open setup was never crowded when I visited. Got tacos next door and sat out on a picnic bench drinking amazing brew. Worth itís reputation.

Fantastic. Just fantastic. The selection was amazing, with prices that were hard to believe. Cash only, so be prepared, but at $3 for a world class pint it is a small price to pay (get it? GET IT?) Would love to see this place with warmer weather and the huge patio area opened up. A highlight on an already amazing beer tour of Portland.

Iím going against the grain here, but my call would be that the best thing about this bar is that they are across the street from the Beer Monger. Obviously this place serves a lot of world class beer, as observed in the availability list. But today, IMHO, the Beer Monger makes better use of 8 taps than these guys do of 50. Long narrow beer bar, like an (slightly) upscale Toronado. Throbbing bass which inaudible treble. Pinball machines are cool. Younger crowd than at any of my other Portland stops. Service is friendly if a bit slow at the bar. No food.

Cash only is the only real issue with the place. Otherwise brilliant tap list, very diverse and at good prices. Deep bottle list and vintage bottle list. Some of the bottles are on the expensive side and some are very reasonable. Walked out with a 2009 Bourbon Old Stock for $40 and was thrilled with the price. Good service and chill atmosphere. Bet the place is bonkers in the summer with the huge outdoor area.

I walked in with a friend, sat down, and ordered a Pliny the Elder. Led Zeppelin was on the sound system. It was a good place to spend an hour or so talking. The place has a long bar with 60 beers on tap, an excellent selection of some awesome beers. Picnic table seating, inside and out. The tap list is alphabetized and overhead on several large monitors, so it was easy to see the beer name, brewery, serving size and price, brewery location, and ABV. The current taplist is online, as well, so you can plan a visit if youíre looking for something in particular. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Vintage and rare bottles to take home. A great place to visit and come back to.

So I canít say enough good things about this place even if it was sorta random when we stopped in walking back from pok pok. It was the last day of there embrace the dark event and it was one of the, if not the best, tap lists Iíve ever had the pleasure drinking from. Got to try Moscow, a bunch of evil twin stouts, various west coast limited ba beers, some 2011 consecration and various iipas. I love the serving sizes because you get to try many different things and although they are generally 4-6 bucks a pop consisting the rarity of the beers it not a bad deal. The server behind the bar was great and quite friendly, there is a pretty stellar bottle selection to stay or go, and itís an awesome place to hang out although itís not for everyone as had been described by many. Also have to say they sure do support biking considering lots of space to park them and helmet racks.
