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.

From August visit. Sours! Went on a very pleasant day so the doors were rolled up and the warmth was rolling in. Very nice and clean without being fussy. Pricing seemed decent. Didnít sample the food but looked like it would have been good. Seems like the place to go if you like sours. Gave my mom her first sour and was entertained at her reaction. Would definitely go here if I lived in PDX.

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.

Fantastic selection of sours, fruit beers and Belgians on tap and available in $2 taster glasses. The service is top notch and the atmosphere ideal for meeting up with friends. Easily one of the top craft beer destinations in PDX and within walking distance to Hair of the Dog.

Pulled up to this place on bike as they were opening. Pretty standard bar/eatery feel. However, the service and beers were amazing. A must stop. Have a couple flights a few light munchies and was on my way. Loved it.

Lots of outdoor seating. Ambiance is ok, nothing special. The attraction here is the great variety of interesting beer, many of which you will never see in a bottle. Nice that you can buy hard to get bottles and take growlers. Wish I lived closer to this.

Made a fairly quick stop here while on vacation. I sampled all there beers on tap! quite a few beers. Letís just say this is sour paradise. Most of there sours lean toward a raw farmhouse feel. Big lemon flavors in many of them. Awesome joint. I will always stop here when I am in Portland.

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!
