I literally stumbled across this place a week after they opened last summer. Although Iíd sampled many Oregon breweries...this was my first trip to craftbrew heaven (aka Portland). Headed out to see the Columbia River Gorge and some windsurfing too...so thatís how I ended up here. I think the light wood interior and mixture of bar, eating area, and brewery all in one worked very well. The people were great and I met a couple of the family that owned the place. I agree with the rater before me...the IPA Belgium were great. I wish the owners the best of luck. This is a great place and I hope it succeeds.

New brewery and tasting room (opened August 4, 2012). Large industrial-style building with high-ceilings and very big windows. Right on the Columbia River. Brewery and tasting room in one space; large fermenting tanks dominate one end. Bench seating at communal tables for 24; smaller tables for 16, and 10 bar seats. A few tables outside along the street. Walls and ceiling feature lots of wood and beams reclaimed from old farms; solid-looking tables and chairs; stained concrete floor. Very friendly and careful service. They offer six Belgian-style brews on tap. A seventh is in the works. Samplers of all six available for $12 (a bit pricey). Growlers also available. Good but limited menu: seven appetizers; eight entrees; also house-grilled flatbreads. Each menu item lists a suggested beer pairing. Overall, a comfortable place. The beers are all good, with two standouts: the IPA and the Belgian IPA.
