I have to admit that I’ve been bad about getting here. Partly because the term ’gastropub’ makes me think of something other than the cafe style restaurant with food that this place actually is. (It sounds more expensive, really.) Instead, it’s a very relaxed atmosphere with some really great service. The bartender was happy to chat with us when we showed up with 15 minutes to close, so high marks for that. They have 10 taps, all of their own beer, and I will have to give them marks for creating an alternate to regular ’gluten-free’ beers in both inventiveness and flavor. Quite frankly, stuff from Deschutes and Omission (Widmer) do a disservice to Harvester because they’re doing some good work in a way that made me stop and think about beer more closely. In a world where one can list off about 5 attributes of a pale ale, for instance, without thinking, this invites closer inspection, and for that reason, it’s recommended - even if their stuff isn’t ultimately your kind of thing. Personally, I’ll be back.

A good place to visit to see how far alternative brewing has come, as ingredients like lentils, chestnuts, sorghum, buckwheat, and fruits are being used to their full potential. Atmosphere is far more of a cafe/restaurant than a bar. The menu is also gluten-free, although we did not come hungry. Well-made, and creatively constructed array of beers made from alternative grains and alternative fermentables to achieve true gluten-free status. The beers manage to have good flavor and body and can be judged on their merits rather than standing out only because they are gluten-free. Of the 6 we tried, the brown ale was my favorite.
