Stumbled upon this place on the way to Seattle... A caravan of 6 TV dudes were hungry and thirsty... One of my coworkers hit this place earlier this summer and suggested it as a stop for lunch.
The building is perfect for a small town brewpub... I was told it was originally a Packard Car dealership.. I guess that sounds about right, big and open and tons of exposed brick... It screams historical.
Seriously great service despite us being a pretty loud and obnoxious group.
I had the Bruce Lee porter and a seasonal saison... both were very tasty and right on par for the course. I tasted the pale and an IPA and thought they were pretty good too.
The food is pubfare that seems to push local ingredients.. I had the Scotch Egg and a mountain of sweet potato fries (both perfect).... Others had great looking sandwiches/burgers/wings... The wings were fantastic... The onion rings were great too.
Six of us got out of there for about $100ish.... Certainly very reasonable for picky business travelers... I will come back EVERY time I travel through the Blues.
I bought a T-shirt for me and a few stickers for extras in trades.. Check this place out, you will not be disappointed.

This is a great place and nice to find in a city that was in need of a brewery. Great old building, good look and the brews where very tasty. Food was good pub food and the place being family friendly was nice to see. A good stop on the drive from Boise to Portland.

Bingo! Oregon beer flexing its muscles again! Very chill atmosphere- a younger crowd and vibe at the bar (Death Cab and Modest Mouse playin in background). Staff was very knowledgeable and owner came out to introduce himself and talk some beer and the future of the place! Had the Bruce Lee Porter- awesome. Donít miss this place- youíll be hearing about it soon.
