First stop in the airport as it was near our departure gate (wanted to find where it was). Had lunch since we left in the morning from Orange County and it was about lunch time by the time we arrived.

Kind of an odd set up as the main dining area is a tiny little block just outside several gates and there are also some high top bar tables on the wall opposite the walkway. A mass of humanity in a small area.

Service from the older woman working the dining room was a bit impatient and surly, particularly since we had to wait quite awhile to even get a menu or anything. Oh well... The food and beverages here are really reasonably priced, particularly since itís an airport.

They had eight beers on tap during my visit--four regular/year rounds and four special/seasonal beers. I got a set of all eight and it was somehow only $10. I donít think itís normally that cheap, but Iíll take it. Food (burger) was pretty decent as well and not all that expensive.

As far as airport bars go, this is probably one of the best Iíve been to...if you can get passed the lack of space/comfort/ambiance.

By their nature, most airport bars are going to score pretty low on the "ambiance" scale. and service can be pretty slow, but Iíve definitely had slower. But the beers were fresh, and the garlic fries were garlicky (which, in retrospect, may not have been the best choice right before a long flight...).

Grabbed a quick morning pint of porter before my flight. Not much too say, other than it beats the majority of other airport bars that all have the same dross on tap.

While walking to the gate to wait for a flight I happened to find this. Granted it was 10am but itís never too early for a place tick. If I had known this was here I wouldnít have eaten breakfast. They only had 4 beers on tap when I was there and they were all regulars but they did have the Workhorse IPA. The atmosphere here is a bit strange as this bar is pretty much right in the gate so right near your table are people waiting for their flight out in the boarding area. Prices are a bit high on food but the beer was pretty reasonable. I could think of worse ways to wait for a flight.

(Visited 05/2013): The Laurelwood in PDX is located in Concourse A right in the gate area. There was some construction going on in the area during our visit.

The place does what it can as far as decor in an airport. Nice signage facing the seating area outside, and inside there are some tables and a small bar with a large logo mirror and a view of their taps.

The PDX Laurelwood has 8 of their beers on draught and they are available in a sampler tray. These include mostly flagship beers with perhaps a seasonal or two. On my visit this included Portlandia Pils, Space Stout, Workhorse IPA and one of the Pale Project beers. Overall the beers are solid.

Service for an airport restaurant was decent. The server was somewhat knowledgeable about the beers and was attentive.

Food at this location was pretty good. Our lunches were enjoyable.

Overall this is about the best a beer lover could hope for in an airport brewpub.

Damn good airport pub. Food was decent, but what really struck me was the prices - lowest Iíve found at an airport (e.g., $3.50 for a 12oz pour). Nice selection of their own stuff, with about eight handles there. Nice place to stop for food and a brew when stopping there.

Nice bar by gates at PDX. Service was friendly considering how early I was there. Nice to try their brews as well.

Have been here a few times while traveling through PDX. Itís in an airport so ambiance is meh, except you can people watch which is great in airports. Selection is all the core beers and a few seasonals or special beers as well. Food is typical brewpub but solid. Value is very considering itís in an airport, probably the best airport beer place Iíve been to all around. Skip Rogue and go here.

This is a great place considering it is in an airport. 8 of their beers on tap. A nice sampler was 10$. 3 seasonals. Good service. Excellent place.

A nice spot in the Portland International Airport. They have a great selection of their brews, I tried the Space Stout and an IPA, both were great. I had the Laurelwood Breakfast sandwich... amazing! Truly some of the best airport food and drink out there.
