this joint was my first beer stop on my PDX trip. i have mixed feelings about this place. old school western/british style pub. i sat down right next to a plate of half eaten food that never got taken away, but our bartender, hugh was was awesome, had plently of recommendations both travel and beer wise. very helpful cool dude. despite others comments, the beer (draught) selection was very wide, with alot of obscurities from smaller local breweries, pretty heavy on IPAís and stouts though. the food looked like garbage and it looked like locals knew that for service they would have to initiate things themselves. all good, nice place. definitely a must stop.

I am originally from Portland, and every time I return my first stop is to The Horse Brass. Since the ban on smoking, I have made more of a point to visit. Though I love the ambiance of the place, it is sometimes a stretch for me to find a new beer on tap that I would like to try. At times, there have been multiple blown taps because the bar is too busy. The food is traditional pub fair, and the fries are hand-cut and quite good. I have found that Belmont Station, which is a few blocks away, occasionally has some of the same guests on draft, but is overall cheaper. I do not think a visit to Portland is complete without coming here.

I frequent the HBP quite often, because itís honestly one of the best brewpubs in Portland if not THE best. The atmosphere alone is worth the trip: you walk in and feel like youíve stepped into a real English pub, with tin beer signs all over the walls and people playing darts over in the corner. The service is great (although itíd be better if they had British accents!) and the food is incredible... especially the authentic fish and chips! But what really makes this a must-hit beer stop is the 50+ beers they have on tap! And with Belmont Station just a few blocks away, thereís absolutely no reason why anyone who loves beer shouldnít stop here. It really is one of the reasons Portland is so synonymous with craft beer.

A nice place to visit. Being from out a town I a had a hard time finding it and parking is limited. The food was decent and the beer selection was great. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to enjoy some english style food and some great beer.

The food rating is for their fish and chips which are the best anywhere - I do not know about their other food. I really like that you can buy a micro brewed 10oz glass for only $2.25 to $2.75, since it often takes more than a sample for me to decide how much I like a beer. I do wish that they offered a taster tray with 6 to 10, 4oz glasses, but being able to get a free 1oz sample or 3, and the 10oz glasses nearly make up for that.

The Horse Brass is a place I like to go on occasion. Their drink selection is outstanding, one of the very best in all of Portland and you can count on being able to try something unique each time you stop by. However, the food isnít much good, and Iíve had pretty good and absolutely terrible service there. Prices arenít bad.

Great version of a London Pub in America, plus they serve Rogue Hazelnut Brown Ale on tap, that makes them gold in my book (smile).
