In a word, stunning. A virtual Oregon Beer Museum. I would give a 10 for ambiance if I could. Whether you are a local or a visitor, this should absolutely be on your must-visit list. First let me cut to the chase: this is more about the place and less about the beer. I was torn on what to rate them for selection because, well, itís all Deschutes. Which is fine, but I thought they might have more of their specialty stuff lying around. They had probably 12 taps. They did have their new (very highly rated) XX Porter flowing. That was a real treat. But not even a drop double IPA, which would have been nice. Everything else was pretty standard, but good. Bottom line: you need to come here and just SEE it. Amazing. Also, the food was some of the best pub grub Iíve ever had and prices were quite reasonable, unlike say Pike Brewery in Seattle. Probably one of the best Reuben sandwiches Iíve ever had, and Iím a freak for Reubens. Service was OK, but not special. Because the place is so big, it has a big staff and does high volumes. So my guess is it will be hard to get really good personalized service, especially if you want to get any juicy tidbits of info about the beers. One of the quirky things hereóIím curious to see how long this lastsóis a small copper chute that comes out of the wall about 9í above the back bar. Its purpose? You are supposed to throw tip money at it (coins). If you hit the chute, it funnels down and comes back out into a spittoon, the bar tip jar. I saw people throw coins from 20í away. Itís all fun until someone loses an eye.

Visited early on a Thursday evening, and, wow, was it ever packed with customers! Very busy bar area, with two TVs showing sports. So noisy that people had to shout to each other. Nicely designed, though, with massive wooden beams, ceiling fans, and NW-themed carved post and lintel "gates" into the dining area. 20 taps going: six "classics" / one seasonal / two casks / 10 "brewersís choices / one "pub reserve". Special bottles, too, including the latest Abyss. This place is great for trying pub exclusive brews, which wonít show up elsewhere and most of which are very good, some of which are great. Good, limited, pub food menu, with local ingredients and several items made with Deschutes beers or beer ingredients -- but food is a bit pricey here. The big problem is the crowds and the noise (hence the low ambiance score). Sort of a mix of families and very loud yuppies, with the yuppies barking and snarking at each other. I wouldnít even try to imagine what itís like on weekend nights. Go early and get out before it fills up.

Visited December 11 2013. Abyss on nitro tap was great but other beers quite average. Seems to be quite popular place.

Big showy brewpub for a big brewery in a big city. This place wasnít bad at all, and would definitely go there again, but something is lost when there are hundreds of people in the room and youíre just trying to geek out on beer. The wife had an Abyss on nitro and looked like she might cry with happiness. Deschutes definitely offers solid beers, but our experience here was-meh.

Stopped in for a late lunch around 3:00 and the place was already crowded. Basically a nice restaurant with a bar. Cool view of the brewing operation but you can only see it when going to the restroom. Deschutes beers are good but the selection on this day was average, I was hoping for something special that you canít normally get. Timing is everything I suppose. Food was average and pricy. Service was outstanding, attentive and fun on a very crowded afternoon. Overall I enjoyed and will be back.

The tap house is attractive to the eye, but I felt that it left me wanting more from a place that is so heavily associated with good beer. In fact, it feels much more like a fancy restaurant than a tap house, even at the bar. Every time we wanted another beer or food, we had to go up to the bar to ask since no one ever came by the table. The beer selection is very good, having all/nearly all of Deschutes beers on tap at any given time (that are in season). The food also was very good, however the prices were outrageous for food. I think I payed $6-$7 for fries... Overall, this public house is not one of my favorites, and I would only recommend it if you are looking for a nice dinner with a good beer, or are a die-hard Deschutes beer fan.

Visited this place twice while in Portland. It seems like a up scale but pub/bar with a slightly corporate feel but its all their beers, the decor is interesting, and the service is friendly. If you sit at the bar no minors are allowed but in the rest of the place you are safe with your family. Food was decent to good although in some cases slightly pricey; flights and beer also seems slightly on the high side compared to other places but if downtown its worth the visit for sure. And they always have a couple interesting things on tap - lucky enough the second time visiting that they had tapped a firkin of the Abyss for all stouts day!

It was packed to the rafters when I initially passed by so came back another time...yep this place gets busy, no doubt. Grabbed a spot at the bar and sampled my way through a few beers. Some lovely fresh hop beers in the mix, being that time of year in the beer calender. I didnít pay too much attention to the surrounding space but itís clear Deschutes has dropped some serious coin here. Food was well overpriced for what youíre getting. Still, itís worth a visit to at least get a few beers in.

This was a very commercial and sterile looking brewery location for this very large brewery.Iím not surprised with how clean and well organized this place was but it felt too nice. Tap list was great and there were some bottles to enjoy on-site. I didnít have any of the food but I felt it was pretty expensive. I would probably only come back to try new beers that are out.
