Large almost German style beer hall. Full of games and happy beer quaffing Porlandians. Dog friendly year round back porch a big plus. Lines for a beer can get long and aimlessly annoying. Like who is next here? theyíve got a little of everything here with a fairly extensive menu. Great beers and a fun atmosphere, I can tell why many call this watering hole a favorite.
I like this place. The sampler of beers is the best bang for the buck. Pooch friendly, big massive space. Iíve always been there while sunny so we are always outside. Super Dog is the most amazing PDX beer Iíve ever had. Was really impressed.
One of my all time favorite spots in PDX.
This place is damn near perfect. Granted, they have more space than most, but they use it well- large open inside seating area with a huge windowed wall where you can observe the goings-on in the dog-run. Beer selection and quality is great- who needs guest taps when the house beer is so good and offers so many choices?? Most of the Lucky Lab beers I sampled were well above average some of the best in Portland I could find. Standouts were the Pavlovs Imperial Stout, SuperDog IPA and a cask stout that was really nice. The food here was decent brewpub fare and priced reasonably, no complaints. Service was fast (both food and bar) and bartenders seemed knowledgeable of the products and only slightly apathetic. Would highly recommend+Great value! PS This place had at least 8-10 taps and at least 1 cask when I was there.
A quick bus ride or leisurely walk from downtown Portland you'll find Portland's best Brewpub. A large open hall in which to meet with friends and share good times and wonderful brews. Usually 7or 8 house brews on tap and one guest tap that always rotates with intersesting brews (Pelican, Caldera, WalkAbout, Hair of the Dog, Terminal Gravity, Mia & Pia's, and Wild Duck just to name a few that have made multiple appearances. The lab brews are outstanding try Hawthorne's Best Bitter for starters a copper amber hue with just the right linger of dry hop full bodied flavor in a brew that is only 4% abv. Other outstanding beers are Top Dog Xtra Pale, Super Dog (Top Dog's big brother), Crazy Ludwig's Alt, and of course Black Lab Stout. Seasonal beers not to miss are Quality Rye a summer ale with a unique character, Peregine Pils a spring ale that balances the best of both German and Bohemian styles. The Old Yeller Barley Wine 10% abv served in a brandy snifter for true sipping pleasure and Pavlov's Russian Imperial Stout flaked oats add to this beers complexity. The Lab dosen't have smoking, tv's, video poker, nor pool tables. The only thing you need here is man's best friend (yes it's still a dog) on the back patio and man's second best friend a malty adult beverage. Cheers
Great location. Great building. I love the old warehouse style and the loading dock patio out back. Dogs are always welcome on the deck. Sandwiches and bento are the grub offered here. Beers a good to pretty good, with nothing being spectacular. They do have a rotating guest tap here.
Good atmosphere, it looked a little more like a warehouse turned into a brewpub than anything else. It was very open, not too much decor. I wouldn't take my family here. The menu was a chalkboard menu with pizza and such on tap. They had a nice selection of their beers on tap with a few guest offerings. This place was strikingly similar to the tap house but the decor wasn't as good (IMO). This is right outside of downtown, I was actually on my way out of downtown and ran into this place on accident so I decided to go in and check it out.

Large barn like area. I thought of a boerfest in somebodyís plaas when I sat down. You queue up to order food and drink, but beer service is quick. I barely got my request for a pint out of my mouth and it was in my hand. Food came while I was in the loo. Noise level very acceptable. They have off street parking. Toebroodtjies very good. Dogs allowed in the patio
Popped in here on a recent visit to Portland since we were staying close by. Massive industrial space with a surfer sort of vibe (even though I donít think thereís a whole lot of surfing going on in Portland) - reminded me of the Pizza Port Ocean Beach location. Wooden picnic tables strewn throughout. A large selection of mostly hop forward stuff (no complaints there) that were pretty well done. Bartender was very friendly and entertained my wife while I ticked away. Cheap as chips and although we didnít eat here, I really enjoyed the visit.
