Best thing here was the service. Overcrowded and noisy.Neither the beer selection nor the pricing impressed me. Food was less than stellar and quite pricey as well. I wonít be back.

There isnít much else this far down Main. Right beside a really good fishmonger, Portland Craft was formerly a lame sports bar that went out of business is no time flat. It feels a little cheap inside, too. But the beer list is why youíre here, and 15 handles from WA and OR micros is a good thing. Always something interesting. A good option.

15 taps full of beers from Oregon. Nothing too special, but overall a nice selection from the likes of Gigantic, Ninkasi, No-Li, Double Mountain, Deschutes and such. Some of them were available from other places in town too, though. Okay food and samplers available as well, so even though itís not that centrally located, itís well worth the trip if you want to try some US beers while in Vancouver.

High ceilinged urban watering hole with tables and bar. Pacific-NW focused beer list of about 16 taps and a few bottles, all overpriced according to Vancouver standards. Not the most enlightened selection of beer, but it is a good array for Vancouver. Decent service most of the time. Innocuous music tends to be drowned out by unusually high ambient noise levels, which makes the place seem lively. Excellent sub-$5 bar snacks including assorted pickled fruits and veggies (awesome) homemade warm seasoned potato crisps, etc.

Nice upscale bar with almost all taps from Oregon. Pints for every beer were at least $7, so after tax and tip are added, youíre at nearly $9/drink. Didnít try any of the food, but it looked decent, albeit pricy. This place is very overrated. Wonít likely be back.

It was a busy afternoon crowd here but easily grabbed a spot at the bar. Tried a couple of beers, ate something pulled-porkish, then was on my way. I was making my way onto PDX so wasnít expecting too much. A nice addition to Vancouver regardless.

Very nice bar with great casual ambiance. Everything was pretty good, the only problem arises when you go to Portalnd quite often and want something you havenít had before.

i was only in Vancouver for a short stay but this was one of the best places I went to. Great food and atmosphere! I would have liked a little more selection of beer on tap.......still If in Van I highly recommend Portland Craft

While they donít have a huge number of taps, they make up for it by keeping on theme (US), and changing out things frequently enough to keep it interesting. Service is fine. Atmosphere is a bit too yuppie for the Main St vibe theyíre going for. Food is fairly priced and quite good.

This improbable beer bar which has now been opened for about 5 months in Vancouver is an hommage to everything Portland. The food, original, tasty and not too expensive, the relaxed, hipster crowd and the very solid selection consisting almost exclusively of Oregon brews indeed make you feel like youíre in Portland. The food offer is not very broad, but we still found some tasty entrťes and the choices were original enough, far form limited to burgers and I hope they continue in that vein. Beers were in good condition, all fresh despite the burden of being imported from the US. And perhaps more importantly, the vibe is good. The high ceilings make the place perhaps a bit loud, but despite still being in its youth, the bar was full of people on a late Friday afternoon. Somehow, I seem to be the first rater and this comes across as a surprise as this felt like one of the best bars in vancouver to me and if their selection rotates frequently, Iíd definitely come back with some sense of regularity if I lived anywhere around.
