I am very glad I was finally able to make it to this nice little spot. Atmosphere is easy-going and comfortable, looking very much like a simple family restaurant. However, there is a "den" downstairs with stools and tvís if you are in the mood. Service was friendly, patient, and accommodating. Their experimental sours are something to be applauded, and the gose I had was absolutely first rate. Food was good and appropriately priced. Iíd certainly recommend this place to anyone ... beer hunters, families, tasting groups, etc ... it is well worth the stop.

This might be my favorite place in the Portland area which is really saying a lot. Really great sour beers. Atmosphere is a little strange. The family-style lodge upstairs with the t-shirts for sale and coloring contest entries plastered on the wall honestly almost scared me off the first time. The basement is definitely more of an adult scene though.. I had a really great (and big!) seafood jambalaya dish that I have been getting cravings for ever since. I donít know how they keep their prices so low on barrel-aged beers. Service is the best Iíve gotten anywhere... I bought some bottles and the bartender offered me a generous sample of the Nightfall Blackberry. Yummm.

Raccoon lodge is a pace for beer geeks and non beer geeks (they have a full Liqueur license). This place is known for their sours which is why I frequent but their regular line is great as well. the happy hour food is a great value. I wish they still allowed growler fills of their sours. I look forward to the new barrel house on the east side.

A huge place with a modern, airy restaurant upstairs and a weird, rather dark, modest pub downstairs. If it were limited to that, I must say I would not have liked the place at all. Itís not pretty nor loaded with character and there was not much of an atmosphere though we were there in late afternoon. Fortunately, it does not stop here. First, they had 6 of these Cascade experimental brews available to go at better prices than stores (15 a pop). Then, the staff was friendly and displaying palpable beer-enthusiasm. Furthermore, we asked for a little chat with the brewer and it turned out into one of these extravaganza that are so proper to encounters between passionate people. We ended up visiting the brewery and navigating between its 130 wooden barrels to catch a few select samples. Ron used to be a winemaker and it is obvious in his method: controled experiments. Owner Art Larrance eventually joined us up and this entertaining, almost legendary Portland figure kept the samples flowing. Samples became full glasses and laughter joined the party. We ended up staying over 2 hours and left with broad smiles. Besides, the draught selection included a remarkable oud bruin and tasty IPAs. They have ambitious expansion projects and with the quality of their products and attitude, I bet they donít even need my good wishes to succeed. My score has to reflect the experience I had, but this may not be what you live on a sunday night if you come for dinner.

I stopped in here for a lazy Sunday morning. I was the only one in the basement with one of the bartenders opening. He was very friendly, served some great beer and helped me arrange some beer purchases. The ambiance was absolute cheese, but the beers are worth the trip!

This place is boring on the inside, their beer is barely drinkable, though they had all of the important types. Who cares though as you canít stomach it. The food was below average room temperature and just not great. The service was rude and slow. I donít get why people love this place, all I hear is raves but Iíve never enjoyed it, especially the beer.

Why I donít have a rating in for this awesome place is beyond me. I was just looking and thought, what the hell is going on? I was here November 14th 2008, with a bunch of the Seattle crew and we did a 4 hour tasting gratis, with Ron Gasberg one the awesome head brewer. It was one of the best beer days Iíve ever had. Didnít get to try any of the food, minus some good nachos they brought down for us. Grade A, must go to!

Nice little place that was seemingly family friendly and offerred a diverse menu as well as many of the breweryís beers. A sampler tray of 10 4oz brews was $10. I had the jambalaya; it was great. Service was fast and friendly and overall a nice place to visit.

OK, Beaverton feels way out to Portlanders. And, OK, Beaverton isnít on the way to anything else for visitors. But you have to go. This place has amazing beers. Very cool setup with a bar and restaurant upstairs, bar downstairs with full food service. Nice choices on the menu, nice big tvs on the wall. Plenty of seating downstairs (maybe this is news if youívew been there before). Theyíre doing traditional american ales as well as an amazing lineup of sour stuff running on lactobacillus innoculation--fruit beers, flanders, cuvee, blondes, stuff youíve maybe never heard of before ícause theyíre a bunch of mad scientists. Ogle the barrels through the glass from downstairs, then watch the game. Canít say enough good things about Art, Ron, and their crew. Awesome spot.

Great stop as we were headed through Portland on the way to Seattle. Really helpful and friendly bar service downstairs, with lots of solid seasonals on tap (some lightly tart, genuine fruit beers, Flanders Red, a winter warmer, etc.). Happened to run into Ron while we were there, who was a great host and brought out some special beers from the barrel room for us to try. I donít know if Iíll be around the area when these things finally come out, but there are some great barrel-aged offerings on the horizon. Had the Kriek, Blackberry, and Cuvee available in bottles when we were there as well. Very much worth the stop.
