If you like sours this is easily the best place to drink in Portland. These guys make some of the most imaginative sours around. Tap it Tuesdays are always a blast. Itís such a shame about the food selection which could use a lot of work.

Weíre starved for sours, so this was one of my primary targets on our recent portland trip. We stopped in a couple times and sampled just everything even remotely tart. Wonderful range of sours. We had a sampler and then glasses of our favorites. Cool, open garage setup. The waitresses were very attentive and nice. Loved it.

Love the space they have here--kind of an open garage type inside with plenty of outdoor picnic table seating. Cheap 3oz samples are available for the tickers, which is what I opted for. The prices overall, seemed a touch high for the area, but for someone from the NYC area, I definitely felt like I was getting my money worth. The draft selection features at least 10 of their sours, so if youíre in the area and havenít had their beers before, thereís PLENTY to get though to last you a few hours at least. My only knock was that the service was a little spotty, even when it wasnít that busy. But I wasnít really in any rush, so whatever.

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 wasnít 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 itís 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 íround 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 Iíd 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.
