High ceilinged urban watering hole with a PAC-NW focused beer list of about 16 taps and a few overpriced bottles in the IPA, ESB, porter and stout categories. Conditioned well. Not the most enlightened selection but good for Vancouver. Good service. Innocuous music. Did not eat.

Nice upscale bar with almost all taps from Oregon. Pints for every beer were at least $7, so after tax and tip are added, you’re at nearly $9/drink. Didn’t try any of the food, but it looked decent, albeit pricy. This place is very overrated. Won’t 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 wasn’t 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 haven’t 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 don’t 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 they’re 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 you’re in Portland. The food offer is not very broad, but we still found some tasty entrées 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, I’d definitely come back with some sense of regularity if I lived anywhere around.
