Deschutes in the Pearl goes the way of Henryís 12th St. Tavern... big, beautiful, polished, family friendly, posh-beer-geek, which can certainly be nice. Sure I enjoy these types of places, but this is where the inexperienced downtown drinkers migrate to after work, which I guess is a good thing since it keeps the true gems of Portland a little more real. Having said that, Deschutes in Portland is a nicely design, high-ceilinged, fancy sort of beer spot... the tap list is sure to please - more regulars, a few seasonals and a few special small batch releases. The wood carved columns in the dining area add some PNW character but do see a bit out of place. Thereís a ton of money behind this place, no doubt, and Deschutes is a big boy in the PNW, and they knew exactly what they were doing by opening this pub. Sure to be a hit with everyone on their first visit, and especially suitable for groups and families, but I tend to prefer the smaller, more authentic beer geek places in Portland, which is just as well, because once the Pearl yuppies invade your favorite pub, itís no longer your favorite pub.

Nice atmosphere, young crowd. Lots of Deschutes brews, including some apparently unique to this pub. Good service Did not try the food, but it looked like above average pub grub. Worth trying.

I greatly enjoyed my visit at Deschutes. Their enormous and spacey restaurant is located in the old brewery district in what is now a beautifully restored (awesome windows) industrial loft with very high ceilings. It was a bit disappointing to fall upon such early closing times, but we later came for lunch and the place was pretty much packed. The food was excellent, well-thought, tasty, in perfect size and more than a few interesting choices featured in the menu. The beer selection is nothing short of stunning. Youíre at Deschutes and itís one of the most trustworthy brewery around. Everything they do is good, yet theyíre not afraid of venturing into national brewing trends and doing it much better than most. So you have at least 15 beers on tap, 2 on cask and many of them youíve never heard of. The amped-up black butte was worthy of its smaller brother, the pils was one of the best Iíve had in the last few months. The prices remain democratic. Perhaps not the friendliest place, itís just too big, but a place Iíd dine in frequently given the chance.

(Visited 02/2010): Visited twice during our long weekend in Portland - first for lunch directly from the airport, then again a couple days after the Jubelale 2010 release (we missed out on bottles). The Public House is located on 11th and Davis, and there is metered parking available all over the place.
Inside there is a gift shop right next to the host stand, and once past that area the space opens up a lot. The bar is on the left side offering a view of brewing equipment behind glass. There is table seating in the rest of the area. The look and feel is kind of a hybrid lodge/industrial, with lots of wood and a stone fireplace coupled with exposed pipes and brushed metal. It works. The bar has a chalkboard showing what beers are available.
As for the beers, Deschutes offers a sampler for $7.50 and you can pick which beers you want. The menu seemed to be pretty up to date as far as what beers were available. Not surprisingly all the beers are well-made, and they run the gamut from Organic Amber to a Black IPA to the Porter and everything in between. My favorite beer of the trip was the Jubelale 2010 on draught on the second visit.
The server at lunch was knowledgeable on their beers and even gave recommendations on brewpubs in the Mt Hood area where we were visiting a couple days later. Any suggestions are welcome on a first visit to Portland where you canít swing a dead cat without hitting a brewery/brewpub.
The food at Deschutes is solid. My "gyro" burger and my wifeís burger were both really good.
Overall this place definitely needs to be at the top of anyoneís "to-visit" list on a Portland trip.

This is a bigger sized brewpub with lots of dining area which we enjoyed, since the bar area was full. It was a Monday night and things were bustling, but not slammed packed. There was a good array of quality beer to choose from. Service was helpful and the salmon mac and cheese was tasty along with perhaps the best hummus plate Iíve had. I canít complain.

They just opened a few weeks ago this place was huge. They brought Bend OR to Portland. The atmosphere, brewery everything about the place was BIG. They had a huge bar with 5 bartenders going like crazy to keep the beers and booze flowing. They had an hour wait at times and wow it looked like more when we left. The beers where awesome and the food was the best. Great times to be had here. They will calm down after the first rush but this is going to be a place to go back to often. WOW it was big did I mention they yet?

Visited on Weds 07/11/12 around 8pm. We had to wait for a table for 15 minutes, the place was pretty packed, although the wait line seemed to tick over fairly well.
Large single roomed venue with a partition down the middle.
Good selection of Deschutes beers and all available in 4oz samples to aid the ticking!
Service was fine bearing in mind they were pretty busy.
My only complaint was that the beers were a bit samey in terms of ABV, all 5 and 6% jobbies - would have been good to have had one or two stronger offerings on tap!
Definately worth popping by on a PDX crawl. The food looked pretty good although we held out for the Burrito at the mexican take away opposite Baileys!

Nice looking place with good service, decent prices, very good beer. Went back again, I liked it so much. Upscale and smooth looking, but no unpleasant attitudes.
