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?

I really enjoyed stopping by here as the atmosphere was pretty cool, the beers were mostly good, and I had a great cheese plate. It’s downtown, so it’s easy to get to if you’re staying downtown. Must-see on a Portland brewery tour.

Bright and fun. Service was seriously amazing. Pretzels are out of this world. Really a nice place.

Beautiful place, enough to wow even a non beer drinker. Service is always great, the bartenders are amazing and what I rate others against. Selection is their own, but they make great beer, especially the casks and experimental taps. Food is described well, but rarely lives up to the hype, especially for the price.

Enjoyed a sampler tray here after spending several hours in Powell’s books - damn, that place is huge! - anyway, this is a nice spot - homey, log-cabin-esque interior - high ceilings and hardwood everything - a little piece of rustic mountain cabin in the middle of Portland - many of the standard Deschutes brews, plus about 8 taproom exclusives - friendly and attentive staff - food is fairly good (I had some lamb sausage) - prices on the beers are good, but the food is a little steep - a very solid spot.

Couldn’t make it to Bend, but was very impressed by their space in downtown Portland. Huge place with a surprising number of taps and a great atmosphere. The set up at the bar is weird, and doesn’t really allow for chatting with the staff, but it’s well worth anyone’s time.

2010-06. Waited about 20 minutes for a table on a very busy Saturday night. Waiter was mostly friendly but had that look/air about him of not expecting much of a tip when we started by ordering samples and an appetizer to share. I compounded this by promptly knocking over my glass of water not too long after that. We weren’t overly hungry so we shared the elk balls (stop laughing, very tasty) and later a marionberry cobbler (super awesome). The main menu looked pretty decent as well. Beer was generally pretty good, we went through most of the range. Atmosphere is interesting. Wood everywhere it is going for a lodge like feel, but it also has that overly polished, trying too hard feel about it that Widmer did, but it seems to work better here. I think part of it is the newness, part of it is just the nature of having a place big enough to need those vibrating pagers to tell you your table is ready. In the end I decided I liked it. Overall based on the beer, the downtown location, and the food its probably a no-brainer to visit if you are in town.

After stumbling over the paupers in front of this place, I found it to be really large and airy. The place was totally crowded and I had to wait about 10 minutes to find a seat at the bar. Service was a touch slow, due in part to how busy it was. I did not eat while I was there, and had a sampler platter. They had a nice selection of about 14 taps or so, with a couple beers that I had never seen before. Nevertheless, I knew this would be a quick stop after seeing how mobbed it was. I couldn’t really enjoy myself at this place, and there were much better places for me to be whilst in Portland.

Visited here in August ’12. Great downtown location, economical parking nearby. Beautiful decor with high ceilings, big windows with a view of passers by, plenty of brass. Had about 15 of their beers on taps with a few specialties like their Black Butte Anniversary. Food and service was outstanding - I had a spent grain pizza. Prices were not outrageous considering the location. Would be a regular stop if I worked in downtown Portland.

Sat at the bar for a few beers. The place is nice, clean and open feeling with big, high ceilings. Service at the bar was very good and the employees seemed to be knowledgeable about the beers and offered samples. Selection was good, all the regular beers with a nice list of pub only one off’s. Prices were decent and pours were good. Nice place overall, I was just a bit disappointed in the quality of the pub only beers, they all seemed to taste the same and a lot of them had a soapy/medicinal quality.
