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.
Nice selection of beer and food. Great deserts, and bonus points for cooking the calamari just right. The Solstice Festival was going on when we arrived, sot there was live music outside in back. Either there is boatloads of parking, or I was in the lot for the business next door?
Didnít do food. Beer selection was excellent. Bar staff was a bit quirky, funny, but interesting, talkative and informative. Offered a chance to speak to the brewmaster, if they could locate him. Pleasant venue. Good experience. Just donít look at the view when starting down the stairs.
Big ol building with a nice beer garden outside. Some great seasonal beers on tap that were not shy about the ABV, I think out of the 5 seasonals 3 were over 7%. Our waitress was a whacko and not very good, but the food was amazing and the beers were great.
This was a great place to have a meeting and we had a great time afterwards. The service was awesome and they knew of there brews. The food was great and just pub style food served so nothing fancy. Liked the selcetion of brews and will go back for some more samples. Art Lawerence the owner stopped by and he was very nice and treated us to some great brewing gossip.
Large lodge style building tucked alongside Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway. Interior is themed mjames style with plenty of dead animal heads adorning the walls. Food in pub fare plus. Prices for food and beer are reasonable. Decent (~4oz.) sized samples on their beer sample tray. Beer is rather status quo with some different offerings.
