Don Younger the owner sat down with us and what we thought would be a quick lunch ended up being a whole afternoon, an education on the Pacific Northwest brewing scene and a endless stream of samples.
Thanks Don for the memories.

I LOVE the Horsebrass. This is my favorite pub in Portland. Real &quo;English Pub&quo; environment. Dark and smokey. A ton of taps, mostly a mix of imports and NW favorites. 5 constantly rotating taps (never know what you might get there!!)Several casks also. Service is always the best, but beware the place can draw a crowd at night.

I must say that I am do not get the charm of this particualr establishment. Upon entering it seems like it has potential, it is fairly dark, almost dank, the bar is straight ahead and has lots and lots of taps visible. Upon getting a table you notice that dank seems more appropriate than just dark. The fllor is sticky, the charos are sticky, the table is sticky, the coasters are more than gently used (how much can paper coasters cost?). The beer selection looks pretty good. Now if we could just get someone to take our order. Finally, order is placed and not too long later the drinks show up. Beer seems reasonable well handled, no dirty lines or skunky beer. Ok, half way through our beers we are visited by our server who it seems wants to close our tab because they are leaving. Ok so we do, and that folks was the end of our service at the Horse Brass Pub. Based on my visit it seems that you need to be a regular to any kind of service that even approaches reasonable. The ambiance is also a bit droll for my liking. Bottom-line, has potential but fails to capitialize on it. Oh yeah it was real smoky also. It reminds me of Oakes review of Uerige Sticke Alt, ďlike licking the bottom of an ashtrayĒ.

A huge thanks to batkins & Jen for taking me here. Excellent selection of beer, friendly staff, great atmosphere (well, OK I got there in the early afternoon before it gets inundated w/ cigarette smoke). I was able to try beers fm breweries that Iíd never normally get to try (Caldera, Terminal Gravity, Walking Man). A must while in Portland.

Well, I wrote the guide comments so there you have it. I have been to few bars that can compete with this one. A very casual sit-down place with a beer selection that is out of this world. Make sure to order a banger (sausage) when you go!

Wonderful place to go. Old English Pub feel to the decor, located in an olde district next to Belmont Station. A dizying amount of quality PNW taps (along with some PSW stuff too). The food was simply amazing, some of the best authentic english food Iíve had. I could easily spend just the night here and be completely content with a visit to Portland (except Johnís). I canít wait until next time I go!

Great place to sample PNW micros. Older staff members take about.... forever to serve you, but that is OK when you get your beer, your more than happy. A must on any trip to Portland.

I like to say that if I were to open a pub, it would be like the Horse Brass. A rugged, log cabin meets British pub atmosphere, traditional British food (great bangers), and great hosts. The beer list has been good, but not excellent. Iím always able to find something rare from Oregon, which is great.

Ardunno. I used to like it more than I do now. Iíve become quite attached to drinking without sucking in a hundred cubic metres of second hand smoke. I cannot abide by smoke in a beer bar. Itís bullshit. The beer list is also not as inspired - too many obvious and easy choices. The food is all right for what it is - British pub fare is not haute cuisine.
