This is my favorite beer bar of all time. It is clean, relatively quiet, and has a very comfortable feel. There are no annoying TVs to distract you, just good company. While they do not have an epic selection of bottles and taps like a Toronado, they do have a very quickly moving set of 20 taps. As soon as something is out, a new beer is put on in place of it. They update their beer menu accordingly, too, which is a rarity. They have a nice selection of bottles to go (which are VERY reasonably priced) as well as bottles for on-site consumption. The bartenders and owners are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I just had a fantastic time here. The main complaints would be that they do not serve food, and that they only have 2 restrooms. The food can be ordered next door, much like Toronado, etc. I also hate all the paupers who are bothersome if you choose to sit outside. That is a problem with Portland in general, though.

DA took me here when we met up in Portland. Very cool place that has 21 rotating taps with a nice selection. They also had some nice bottles for purchase as well. Great prices on beers.

Certainly a top beer destination in the city. If someone was visiting and could only hit a few places, this would have to be on the list. They don’t have the most taps but there is always a variety of good choices available and the prices are excellent. I like the atmosphere though it is different than a usual bar. Very comfortable. Highly recommended.

nice place for an out of town ticker. the do samplers of any 5 beers for a reasonable price. a lot of cool local stuff on tap i hadn’t tried. games available. beat ky at hang man and battle ship. good service. less crowded than expected for a friday night. cool place. all kinds of crazy beers lining the outside of the place- lot of limited release stuff you typically see in the trade forums. can tell the place is run by beer geeks. a top tier beer stop in portland.

We just happened to walk by this bar in the morning and noticed the expansive collection of rare bottles lining the window sills. I knew I had to stop back by in the evening as this was the type of place I’d been looking for in Portland. It delivered in full. An extensive, but not too vast selection of tap beer was available with heavy emphasis on regional stuff. Good array of styles were represented without wasting any space on swill. The cooler is stocked with bottles with the same idea: a good selection of styles without getting so many varieties that getting an old, dusty bottle is a serious concern. Ambiance is sparse and tasteful. This was one of my favorite stops during my entire vacation.

Good location and better tap list. 21 Taps is just about the right number - plenty of interesting choices, but not so many that you’re overwhelmed. Great service and knowledgeable staff. Only downside is lack of food!

I love this place. It’s a great value overall. It’s easy to add foot for the Mexican place across the street but I’ll keep it as N/A for noe. Geofe, and Michael are great bartenders and nice to chart beer with.

I’ve been here about 5 times now since they opened, so I supposed I should let the secret out...although it isn’t really a secret anymore. This is one of favorite places in Portland, and is a must hit spot. Easy walking distance from a handful of hotels downtown, I really enjoy the feel of this place. In a really cool high ceiling brink wall corner space. Super clean and very minimal in decor. Tap list is displayed on a chalk board and is constantly rotating. They do an excellent job of showcasing local and more obscure beers. They offer two different size pours on almost everything including a taster tray. Great bottle list and growlers to go as well. No food and I am not sure if they allow you to bring stuff in or not, but PDX has a ton of places close by. I am a huge fan of this place.

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.

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.
