Visited July 2011.

First stop of the day. I walked here from the place I was staying and showed up a few minutes before opening. Surprisingly I wasn’t the only one outside waiting for the doors to open. There were a couple of other beer nerds out there looking in the window. The set up is pretty nice inside. They have these barrels that the beer is served from, well, not really served from but it’s a nice decoration. They had a surprising number of non-sour beers on tap in addition to half a dozen sours. I tried an apple pie beer and some IPAs. They also sell some bottles. The service was friendly and explained some of the weirder beers on tap. Very cool place, will stop back in for sure.

On Street Parking only. I found some ’round the corner. Food selection rather limited but very tasty. Service was friendly and very fast. Worth a return visit.

Nice taproom, with a very decent outer area, making it a very good choice on a sunny day in PDX. Surprisingly large tap list, and rotating casks, gives a choice of both easy drinking beers, sours and some barrel aged rarities. Very nice. Good service and fair prices, makes for an all-over decent value.

Nice open seating with a patio out front. Quite a few options on tap and there were 2 "live" barrels where the taps are hooked up directly to barrels and poured that I thought was really cool. Service was great and politely asked us not to consume the food we brought in, but we could keep it there with us. We really enjoyed the sours they had on tap and got a few bottles to bring back with us, though they are pricey. Prices for samples were $2-3, so not bad.

Nice place with good ambiance and nice staff. Big selection from the brewery, but beers were quite expensive (especially from the bottle). Still I’d likely come back if I were in town; I enjoyed the sour beers I tried.

Stopped in for samples and a few bottles. Above average service and attentive. Lots of variety on draft and a decent food selection.

Very underwhelmed. First, I am not a fan of sour beers so perhaps my low rating is unfair. dont expect to get a taste of anything - i felt like the bartender was the soup nazi when i had the audacity to ask for a taste of one of their 3 ipas. no, 2oz taste pours are $2 a piece. thats right, you need to pay $2 to decide you dont like a beer. cascade had 3 ipas on tap, but they were by far the most bland, hop-free offerings of IPAs that i encountered in Portland. they also dont allow dogs. i had no dog, but it was the first outdoor venue i came upon in Portland with that rule. Like I said maybe my low rating is unfair because not being a sour beer fan here is like ordering a burger at a seafood restaurant. that being said, with 3 IPAs sampled at $2 a taste, or $6 for 6 oz of beer, I left because none of the IPAs even reached a level of buying a proper pint.

I have a love/hate relationship with the barrel house, I really do. On one hand, it’s a place dedicated to sours! On the other hand, it’s a place dedicated to similar tasting sours that are really pricey. Food is decent, but I can’t say when the last time I ever thought to go in and order something was. I know a lot of people love it here, but I mostly stop in for bottle releases for other people and then leave. Maybe if they didn’t make it seem like I was imposing on them for wanting to bring in a child...

Belle ambiance avec un belle terrasse extérieure .... La spécialité sont bière sûre ... Le choix est très vaste et varié .... Malheureusement je ne peux pas vraiement evalué correctement puisque mon répertoire de bière sûre québécoise est très limité ( Solstice d’été , Coop V ) et que j’ai pas encore fait mon pèlerinage en Belgique mais personnellement j’ai pas trop aimé . Il faut qu’en même y aller .... pas le choix !!!!
