Stopped by on a rainy Sunday. Big barn like looking place, lots of tables and a walk up and order your beer counter. Beers were just ok. Lots of old country music playing and locals relaxing over a pint. Outdoor area with lots of dogs (of course). They had a kitchen with a decent looking menu, but we did not eat. Decent place, nothing great.

I like this place.
Pros- cool Portland atmosphere, dog friendly, cool outdoor seating, large barnlike indoor area.
Cons- mediocre beer and food, many dogs outside, screaming kids.
Stop by for a pint, if you like it youíll stay, if not, youíll move on, which is what I usually do.

A friend and I arrived right as they opened on Friday. We were greeted by a not to happy bar tender who was not too friendly. Fortunately I think this was a by-product of a couple of yo-yoís (that would be us) coming in right as they opened. They warmed up a bit (just a bit) after some time (and coffee I guess) but the service was not slow and they kept my glass full. Bar and dining area are spacious and they have a variety of board games you can play stacked in the corner. We chose to play darts in the back. Sandwich was good and the beers they had on tap were all quite drinkable (from the ones we had anyhow). Nothing really stood out as exceptional though. Not a bad place at all, itís just not top on my list.

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.

Came here to meet up with friends for a pint and some food. I found the ambiance to be very low-key and relaxed. Dog friendly, which is really cool. I did find the servers to be disgruntled and generally disdainful of people who didnít appear to be local or "Portland" enough. The beers were okay, the food was cheap, simple, and relatively fresh.

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

Huge, beautiful interior and outdoor seating among a flourishing hop garden. Taplist is confusing but comprehensive. Good service, several vegan options but I did not eat.

SW location. Barn-like main seating area. Quiet night but Iím sure this could be quite a loud place on weekends. Nice outdoor seating area

What an old worn barn this brewpub is set in. The whole interior is just worn wood, in the huge drinking arear, which is lit by very uninviting lighting. They only serve sandwiches which is a drawback. 10 beers on draft, 9 of which was new to me, which was the only reason one should go here. Service was slow. I might come back if Iím close by, to see if another tick is possible, but I wonít go far out of my way for this place.

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.
