A really great place, not obsenely sterile like many diverse watering holes but still has its share of stuck up college kids. The collar is definitely tinted blue here but the beer is golden. Didn’t have any food but the menu looked appealing. Belmont Station sits across a little indoor alley so the influence can’t be bad.

Always an excellent beer selection. Rapidly rotating taps and lots of rare finds. No more smoking is a bit of a downer but makes it nicer to hang out and more accurate for tasting/rating beers. Very knowledgeable staff that cares about what they’re serving. Proper serving temperatures!

The Brass is a beast all its own. Its hard to put to words the place. It was one of the first, if not thee first cool beer bars in Portland, Oregon. Genuine British pub feel with a ton of beers on tap and lots of booze, too. The place is defined by the smell when you step foot inside. Smoke smoke fryer grease and smoke. If you can get past the smokiness, you are in for an adventure in beer. Always great rotating beers with some staples like English pub ales, and PNW favorites like Walking Man Homo Erectus, Widmer hefe, and BridgePort IPA. Hard wood crickity floors and a lot of old breweriana signage stained by smoke is the backdrop. Video gambling in the back near a couple dart boards (four boards in all) and dart gear for sale, too. Food is greasy, tasty vegetarian nightmare (though there is more veggie options these days). Not a pub for the faint of heart, but like Cheers in some ways. With a real soul and a genuine attitude. This is a world class bar.

Had to go and visit this legend of a pub. It didn’t dissapoint either. Good pub atmosphere, with plenty of choices. Will be back as soon as I’m in Portland again.

Everyone already knows this place rocks, I don’t even know why I’m rating it. I ordered a Hair of the Dog Fred and it came in a pint glass, wow... is that normal? (Based on the price, I really thought it would be a smaller glass.) I asked about the tap list when I was there and he updated the paper in front of my eyes, so it seems like there are a lot of good beers in circulation. I recommend ordering a Scotch egg, mmm.

Cozy, lot of wood paneling. Dimly lit as it should be, actually put sunglasses on when I left as the overcast was a little tough. Had a Scotch egg, and few glasses of cask ale. Good service, great beer. Should have spent a little more time here. Beers were well priced, 1/2 pours offered of everything.

Visited on 10/18/2008. The atmosphere of this place blows and it was so thick of smoke (even though there is no smokinng allowed in bars/restaraunts in Portland) it almost makes you sick. HOWEVER, their beer selection is unbelievable! So many cask conditioned ales on tap...I would return just because of that factor. Didn’t really eat much, except some greasy fries, which at 11::30 pm after a big night of drinking went down very well. If you are in portland, you must stop by and get a good cask conditioned ale.
