Big building, cycling theme, shiny brushed metal everywhere. Beer selection is quite good, as is the overall quality. Steam beer, IPA, Baltic porter, Czech pils, etc. Happy hour food menu has interesting choices and reasonable prices, but Iíd come back again just to try more beer. This is the startup from the former Laurelwood brewer, so itís no surprise that the beer is well-received.

Good beer and good values mix together and pull me in. This very modern brewpub with its varnished wooden and metallic interior looks just like the bicycle shop that they decorate it to look like. This biking thematic could only seduce me, so I was more than thrilled when I realized that they also brew excellent beers. Their basic pils (Hub Lager) is a shining and rare North American example of an unfiltered and clean lager. Hoppier ales also worked nicely. Somehow, their bourbon barley wine ended up being my least favourite, but its in the sweet mold I donít dig so much. The 10 taps and 2 casks should include something for even the most difficult palate. Friendly waiter was accomodating and interested, obviously liking his job, but some customers seemed to give him trouble when he had to send them back to pay to their waiter. Whenever I come back in Portland, Iíll be sure to visit this one again even if I find it a bit far from anything else, though easy to reach by bus)

This was one of my favorite brewpubs to visit in Portland, maybe even my most favorite. The atmosphere is lively and hippie. It really makes one feel like he is in Portland. Service was very attentive and the beer, affordable anyway, was a super deal at happy hour. The menu looked very attractive but we had all just eaten and couldnít partake of any more food. The beers I tried were all very solid and representative of the PNW beer scene. I enjoyed the vibe and the brews immensely.

Nice if a bit sterile. With all their promotion of green and sustainability, I thought it would reflect more in the bar. Good selection with a few guest taps. Food was decent, all in all a good place but out of the way.

The atmosphere, beer, food and people working where all awesome I loved this place. They have a wonderful bar and the bikes hanging from the bar are an awesome addition. The beer was great they brew all organic beers and they where great. The food was pub faire and very tasty. Tons of parking and easy to find. A great place to take the kids for a nice lunch and a pint. This is a wonderful addition to the Portland beer scene. They have specials and special tastingsí so get on their website and sign up for the updates. I will be back for sure this place was great.

Some interesting hoppy beers but I really wasnít feeling the atmosphere with the bike rims everywhere. If youíre doing a brewery tour east of downtown, I would drop by here.

Huge brewpub in a semi-suburban area of town - reminded me a bit of the Heartland locations in NYC, but with a "we are Eco-friendly and ride bikes" kind of vibe - staff was attentive and quick, despite the fact that it was crazy busy - 10 beers on tap, available as one flight for 8.50, which would be the deal of the century if the beers were better than they are (and if they had more interesting styles) - some were okay, but most were mediocre and/or downright boring - did not have the food, so I cannot comment on that - an okay spot - would probably be great were it not in a town like PDX - I would recommend passing on this place.

Visited while roadtripping through Oregon and Washington. Interesting place, very eco-friendly, and seemed like a very neighborhood oriented place. Beer was good, there are a few places that I like better for beer in Portland, but definitely worth checking out.

You can kinda tell from the picture that this place is big business. You see their beers everywhere, both bottled and on draft. Theyíre always consistent, and theyíre always sane enough that they have fairly broad appeal. You can take all of that and apply it to the spot, as well--itís big, itís well-run, they donít do anything too crazy but they do it well. Thereís a lot of space here, a long bar with dozens of tables. Big staff. They get slammed, even with all that capacity. Itís friendly for families, beer nerds, buddies having beers. Didnít see a lot of single girls, but that was the only thing that kept it from being a full-on hotspot. Service here is really good; fast and friendly, and one of the waitresses was infatuation-worthy. You can come for the beer or come for the grub. I definitely overheard several customers who clearly werenít hunting beer, they were just having a nice meal out. The food is good, too--chicken tenders, caesars, burgers, pizzas. Nothing too crazy (thatís kind of a theme here). They do have a few kegs on that you donít see everywhere, and theyíre generally good to very good. There are flat screens, usually tuned to the game. There are more ambitious brewers in the area, but few are more consistent, and the brewpub itself is very friendly and thoroughly professional. Definitely coming back.
