Walking distance from Hair of the Dog and across the street from Green Dragon. Lots of house beers on tap, about half and half non-sour and sour. Pretty much all of their main sours were on tap or available in bottles. Their pale ales and stouts, though not bottled, were actually very good. Service was quick and friendly. You do get your samplers two at a time in teeny tiny stemmed shot glasses. You really have to Danish tick these beers. Some really crazy beers on tap like a sour pumpkin, blonde coffee stout, ginger lime sour. Quality is high, but get ready for some very avant garde stuff. Bottles to go were pricey, $30 for many of the best sours so be prepared.

20 taps of which 13 sour ones. Very nice beers and very good service. Food wasnít exceptionally good though. It happened to be Tuesday when we visited and at 6 pm they cracked open a new cask. This time it was Gose de Mayo. Every Tuesday they have Tap It Tuesday ceremony.

My new favorite place in Portland. More sours than you can imagine, each one wonderful, plus a long line of saisons and IPAs, not as good as the sours, but good. Great cheese plate. Nice place to chill. I love their beers, and would go here every day for one after work if I could. Seems they change all the time, so you might never have to drink the same one!

Nice place with a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, including a decent sized bar. 12 sour taps and 6 "other," plus a coupe of barrel specials and bottles for in-house consumption. Other bottle available to go. It took a bit for me to get the attention of a server, but after that all was good. Everything for sale in tasters, which can be purchased individually. Vintage bottle list was a bonus. Lack of air conditioning was a drawback, at least today.

Visited in the early afternoon on Monday June 29, 2015. No AC and a hot day, fans werenít helping much, was a sweaty visit. Fairly big crowd inside, not many outside at this time. Found a table in the back for the 4 of us. Possible to purchase 2 small samples at the time from the rather big selection available. For the first run we pretty much got 2 samples each, then I had a few more once my mates had found what they wanted to drink. Service was good. Part from it being so hot in there, was a realy interestign place, especially with the sour selection and the regular selection to work together. Would absolutely go back if in town again. Walked over from the Green Dragon which is literally across the street, there was a bus stop right there as well, if I remember correct the number 15 bus stopping at SE Belmont St and SE 9th Ave. Parking in the street seems to be available. Not many crosswalks around, so take caution if walking to these places. After here walked a few blocks to Base Camp. Wifi available.

Stopped by last night when we were staying in the neighborhood. A nice airy front space with a massive outdoor area as well. Was pretty late when we got here and there werenít a whole lot of other people around. Friendly server brought me loads of samples and made a few recommendations as well. Pretty great vibe in here really - and the beers are absolutely top notch. No complaints here.

This place is so cool - even when itís hot outside - which isnít all that often. Sit in or sit out. Gaze agog at the barrels with taps. Be amazed at all the high quality ales available. Speak with staff who actually understand the product. Quaff responsibly if you donít have a designated driver. Itís very much a local - but one which seems to have a high visitation rate from afar. At least when OBF is in the offing!

Great little brewpub, with very friendly service and the opportunity to sample many of Cascadeís inventive sours. Donít bother with their "normal" beers - theyíre very middle-of-the-road. Definitely worth the visit.

Comfortable spot with lots of outdoor seating, tables or bar spaces depending on your preference. This is the cascade to choose if you want to tick sours. They had 10 staples on tap with 2 live sour beers. They had 8 non sours, but they werenít very good, come to tick sours only. You can do 2 tasters at a time, which is perfect considering how sour these beers. Super nice service. Innovative and seasonal menu that is intriguing, lots of thing look worth trying. Lots of schwag in the form of shirts, glasses, and almost every sour is available in a bottle to go. I had a great time here and would love to come back to tick every sour again. Worth stopping for sure if you can get through acid reflux.
