Horse Brass is one of the leading reasons why Portland is the beer mecca of the USA. Steeped in history and tradition and soaked with beer culture. Long Live HBP

Awesome pub. The food is decent. The beer selection is spectacular. They have some 20 oz. beers for cheap. The facilities are kind of nasty. However, the amalgam of all of what Iíve mentioned, makes this one of my favorite places in Portland. Itís close by where I work, when Iím down in Portland, so thatís an added bonus. Overall, fantastic place, that I love.

Visited around mid day on Weds 07/11/12. Place was fairly busy and most folks were eating. We sat at the bar and drank for an hour or so. Bar tender was great fun and gave us a few samples and chatted away to us. Decent selection with 2 cask dispense and around 50 taps. Beer menu in 2 parts. Regular tap menu and guest tap menu. Eelectronic board as you enter - íthinkí but memory fades, this just displayed the guest taps? Decor is mock English pub thing - not a bad stab at it to be fair! Definately come back here.

Nice pub in the middle of suburb. Friendly staff and very good burgers Ė one can really taste the grilled meat. Good tap selection served in half or full pints.

Old style English pub which is large, cozy, dingy and dated. That is what English style pubs are, and I am a fan. Service varies, the staff are very good but depending on the crowd it can vary. If you like beer, there is very few places with a better selection in my opinion. They also do many events and blind tastings. Food is standard English fare, but good quality. Fish and chips and the Scotch egg are my favourites.

One of those places where you can feel the history when you walk in. Great selection of taps that changes regularly. Went twice during my week and Portland and the waitstaff was great both times. Typical English pub fare. I would be a regular here if I lived in Portland. Very cool place.

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.

Still one of the best beer bars/pubs I have been to. Rivals Toronado in itís old-school west coast feel, but in a more English way and with maybe an even better beer selection. I was treated like family and just canít say enough about this place. Itís sad that Don Younger has left us, but hopefully Horse Brass continues to be a fitting memorial for years to come.

Old school British style pub - dimly lit - a little dingy - atmosphere reminds me very much of Bull and Bush in Denver - decent draft list, although skewed quite heavily towards ipas, pales, porters and the like - beers served by the full pint or half pint - servers were okay - they seemed a bit understaffed, but thankfully it was not busy when I was there - all the beers I had were under-carbonated and one seemed so stale that I decided not to rate it because I was sure the condition of the beer was far from prime - for any bar, but especially a bar with a world class reputation, this is inexusable - I will not return here if I make it back to Portland.

Old English style pub. The guy who served us was amazingly helpful. Setting not to my taste, but thatís not a big deal. Nice selection of beer...despite all the Guinness neon lights.
