This is one of the best places to go for a sour ale. Love their selection and prices. Employee knowledge is very good plus they were helpful. Definitely will go back when in the region.

Good selection of beers, no compalints about service etc. Foodwise we had to return our bowls of Chilli because they weíre cold.

I am absolutely crazy about sour beer. If you are too you NEED to go here. If you get the opportunity, go to "Tap it Tuesday". They line the bar with plastic and tap a barrel over the bar. Sometimes it goes EVERYWHERE.

Was in Portland recently and very fortunately directed to Cascade. Although Iíd had sours before...any place Iíd been to that had them on was usually one per place...rarely two. To find a craft bar much less a brewpub dedicated to this style rather overwhelmed me. Needless to say...I loved the beers...and how theyíve found ways to distinguish them from their Belgium cousins. This place is a must visit for any true craftbeer lover. If youíve had little to no experience with sours...this is your introduction and university...

...sour beers rule. Must sample more, enbrace the sour. Ample opportunity for everyone to find something destined to become a favorite.

This is a review of their website, from which you can order their beers. Only four bottles available, but prices are good, shipping is reasonable, and they ship in styro shippers. They even threw in a free T-shirt with my order, although I have to say that giving a medium to some dude ordering 6 beers from their website is perhaps a bit silly. :) All in all a great experience.

I like that this place and their beers exist, but Iím just not a sour beer guy. Yes, not all are sour, but that cuts down on selection. they do a lot of barrel aging & blending, and have some ardent fans. clean modern place. friendly knowledgeable folks working here.

Visited around 4.30pm on Wednesday 7/11/12. Large single room establishment with bar at the front centre as you enter. Place was a little quiet at first but trade soon picked up as folks came after work. Didnít try the food, but what we saw looked decent. Service was pretty good, I was working my way through 4oz measures and our server came back ervery 5 to 10 minutes so I never ran dry. Good dozen or so Cascade beers available on tap along with 2 from the wooden barrel. Plenty of non sour options for friends who donít drink the tarte stuff! Really enjoyed my stop here - a must visit on a PDX crawl!

A mecca for sour beers here in Oregon, and arguably for the entire country, this place did not disappoint. Rather, it surpassed expectations in every way. I was so pleased to learn that this place, HOTD, and Green Dragon are all within comfortable walking distance of each other. I could live in this neighbourhood and never be wanting for high quality fresh beer for the rest of my days! We liked the option of sitting outside, and we did. Fantastic tap selection, sours, saisons, imperial stouts, and their IPA -- all are top notch. Food was excellent as well. We shared a bunch of muffalettas, salty, savoury, and hot. Perfect food to accompany the refreshing beers. Such a great place! You know, it could be that when you get to heaven, one of your choices will be to eternally pub-crawl in this district. I better start working on being a better person...

When we last visited Portland, we went to Racoon lodge and had an awesome experience, being guided around by owner and brewer who explained us their grand project ideas. It is nice to see those ideas concretized now in this marvellous spot. I canít say Iím immensely fond of the place itself. The closeness to Green Dragon is impressive and meaningful, but otherwise, the area is not particularly attractive and that makes the picnic tables "beer garden" a bit dull as it faces a lifeless portion of Belmont. There were not a whole lot of customers when we were there and it may be happenstance and related to the fact we were there in the afternoon, but there was not the happy, relaxed, atmosphere we tend to encounter in beery Portland places. The interior also still feels a bit too immaculate and not very characterful despite the original and meaningful barrels that decorate the rear of the bar. Despite all those minor remarks, we had an extraordinary time here. Indeed, we came very early in our Portland sojourn and came very close to come back every other day after the one of our visit. Simply, the menu is extraordinary. We love the sour beers they produce and there were probably 10 the day of our visit, exclusing the 4! different saison, the regular stuff and other experiments like two vintages of their barrel-aged imperial stout. We felt like having a glass of almost everything that was on draught yet it was simply impossible and it ended up being one of the very rare places where I just need to do samplers. And thankfully, they have those nice, miniature wine glasses to do samples that work much better than mini-straight sided glasses like most places use. Staff has an obvious respect for the products they serve and were both friendly, helpful and seemingly knowledgeable. Food is relatively limited, constisting mostly of snacks. This is one of those places where beer alone could keep me in for a whole evening, no matter the atmosphere and thatís in a town where many places offer a great atmosphere. They seem to always have a few bottles for sale, including special releases, but they are priced rather steeply, between $17 and $25 a 750 ml when we were there. We still ended up leaving with a $200 bill.
