Visited on Tuesday 6th November í12 around 4pm. Place was pretty quiet as we were inbetween lunch and evening so have defaulted ambiance to 3.
Large enough kind of venue with lots of wood - ie floors and benches etc.
We just stood by the bar as we were only there for an hour.
Home beers only on tap - 6 in total. The Super Dog was a first rate IPA.
Service was fine - they werenít busy mind!
Also bought a T-shirt for my other half and some dog biscuits!
Iíd certainly head back here again.
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.
Old school american style beer hall - cavernous interior with a backwoods cabin kind of feel to it - this is amplified by the bluegrass music they pump in - definitely predates the current hipster vibe in the neighborhood - in fact, the rustic interior almost seems to predate Portland itself - food and beers are dirt cheap - about a dozen brews, but all are quite similar in style (ipas, pales, bitters, etc.) - beers are solidly made, but nothing terrible exciting - food is so-so, but the price is right - decent service - an okay spot, but not essential on your beer tour.
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.
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.
