Excessively well located, downtown and across the street from Tugboat, this relatively new bar is clearly aimed at the beer geek. The very large, very high windows put on display the great beers of this world and I mean that most of Ratebeer’s top 100 is represented. You can bet that one of these bottles is on your want-list. For sale, the draught selection seems to be very solid, sharing lines with various local breweries (a variety of them rather than too focused) and other goodies which just deserve a spot like La Folie. Stronger stuff is served in a tall and pleasant snifter. The young man behind the bar, who might have been one of the owners, was clearly a beer geek, offering dedicated, friendly and informative service, as good as it gets for that. Very comfortable feel, soberly decorated, but certainly a place I could spend hours in. A must in Portland, this is so easy to go to it should be hit even if you have just a day or two in town.

I was about to write the same things that shoulderbroken have just written. Nothing to add. My thoughts exactly. A disappointment.

Crowded and tight place in a very central location. No food except takeout from an outside Mexican joint. Decent selection of beers; reasonable prices. Decent place but there were many better in Portland.

Here shortly after 5 on a Tuesday, and it’s crowded as hell. Flights of 5 for 10 bucks - good deal. Great tap list. Too crowded to enjoy it much.

Great place with 20 great taps. Went there after a Belgian Beer Fest tapping. Extremely reasonable prices and great service. Bottle prices are the same to drink there as they are to go, and are generally cheaper than Belmont Station. Crowded, but with a pleasant ambience. Definitely one of the best spots in Portland. Don’t miss it.

Small bar with a great selection. The electronic tap list is great, shows the keg levels and what’s coming up next which is also available online. Why don’t more places do this!

This is a must visit while touring the Portland craftbeer scene. I love the electronic beer signs...especially when they show details like when tapped and how much left. I suppose this will be "old hat" in a year or two...but still enjoying it. Nice setup...great staff. The best part though is the selection...especially of local and greater Oregon beers. If you don’t have time to hit a lot of Oregon establishments...come here and taste a large representation in one spot.

After my first night at the OBF we stumbled into this place. Tap handles galore and good stuff. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. This being in the center of Portland it can and will be packed. They had taps from mostly the Pac NW with a few exceptions. You can tell that the people there knew what they where getting. The prices were a tad high in my book. But then I get spoiled at times. This is a great place to sit down and relax on a hot summer day. Did not have food on this trip.

2010-06-XX. Reminds me a bit of a more relaxed version Beer Bistro in Toronto in terms of the decor. Sort of up market but not entirely. Cool beer menu board. Staff was friendly, it was busy kind of loud when we were there and sitting was limited that night. Good tap list. We didn’t stay long as we were pretty tired by that point but we had hoped to come back.

Spent time in their upstairs loft/bar area. Cool place. Great beers on tap, and cool bottles. Service was pretty awesome.This is probably a must stop in Portlandia. I would definitely return.

So, the atmosphere here is not what I would typically be into, but for some reason, in Portland, it works - high-ceilinged, faux upscale urban professional hangout - a large flatscreen displays the beer list, complete with style, abv, serving size and how much beer is left in the keg - prices are crazy cheap, with at least 50% on the beers available in 10 ounce pours for 2.50 - flights are also available - servers are hipsters, minus the pretention - they are fairly knowledgeable - they also sell their own logo glassware - focus is on local beer from the lesser-known local breweries, which is nice, considering how many big name brewers there are in town - a great spot - I will try to stop in at least once more while I am in town.
