Basement level brewery where you drink among the casks and brightening tanks. Great vibe, mostly locals and some dude playing blues on a guitar. Outstanding beers. Our favorite of 9 places we tried in Portland. Nice selection of bottles to go.

difficult to find as itís located in the basement of an old bank building, but itís a fun place to stop in for a few sips and look around at the operation. the small size of the operation is clear as they only have a few tables stuck in and around the fermenters and barrel racks. beer quality ranges from okay to great, with some of their non-standard offering being the most interesting (such as classic german pils and gruit). people are friendly, prices are fair, and the whole experience was fun. itís nice to see them care about the ingredients and the process unlike so many other upstarts. itís probably a place more suited for travelers than locals, though, as there are a ton of other places in town in better neighbourhoods and with better facilities (and patios).

Parking is not easy here but if you use public transit or just walk itís not a problem. When I was here there was nothing on the ground floor, the place was empty. Take the elevator down to the basement and walk around the barrels lying all over the place and go to the back corner where there is a folding table set up with a guy hanging out in the vicinity that will serve drinks. They have some bottles available but the Sole Composition bottles are the ones that people go for. They do very good saisons for the most part. They do a lot of experimentation so they do miss on occasion but they do a good job all around. Theyíre also one of the few breweries that I know that does multiple goses through out the year. Prices are reasonable on all their bottles and the draft stuff as well. Iíd love to return some time soon.

Nice friendly and beer geek focused tap room in the improbable basement of a well-located office building near Broadway Bridge. The venues are not particularly attractive, but the beers are good enough that you have a bit of the pilgrimage feel that charaterizes top spots and make you stop caring about how a place looks. Kind of how HOTD used to be before moving close to downtown. Itís not depressing, but it remains a dark basement and with more kegs than people. Still, as beer geeks flock in, a fun atmosphere may develop. you can buy Upright bottles including rarities when available - based on only Four and Seven being available when we visited, I assume thatís not very often. Prices are very reasonable. Growlers are available to go, but they donít have any empties for sale, so you need to bring your own. Too bad, because there were a few beers there that we loved and would have liked a growler of including a sour special called Yusef Lateef and a deliciously bright and fairly hoppy Pilsner, I did not even know they made one. No food offered. Very restricetd hours, their core business not being to run a pub.

Visited around 1pm on Saturday 25/05/13, just after opening. Upright is located in the basement of a 3 or 4 storey building. Downstairs is the brewery itself, lots of barrel ageing projects underway and you can pretty much sit amongst it all. The place was pretty quiet on my visit, 2 groups of 2, plus my party of 6. The guy serving was friendly and informative. Thereís 10 taps and about 10 bottles (to drink in or go). 5oz pours weighed in at a very reasonable $1.50! Really nice set up - a definate visit on a beer tour of PDX !

I absolutely loved my time at Upright. The kind of environment I always feel extremely comfortable drinking in, surrounded by brewing equipment, oak casks, the sight of open fermentation vessels quietly bubbling away. The tap room is basic, a few tables, chairs etc. Whatever, itís all about sampling wonderfully delicious beer. Impressed with the diversity too, not just a fantastic selection of farmhouse ales but there was also a pilsner, bitter and smoked available...all very good. The record player drifting out some killer tunes on vinyl completes it. Perhaps the basement feel would not make you linger for long if you came here regularly but if you havenít sampled Upright wares before itís a must.

A great little tasting room in this basement brewery located in a funky turn of the 20th century office tower. Nine offerings on tap all at 1.50$ each...and these are high quality offerings! They do have some snacks to buy, but this is for beer imbibing. Barkeep/master of vinyl was friendly. Please note the odd hours, but as David said, the focus here is brewing. Still, fun time tasting beer, eating pork rinds amongst barrels!

I was so happy to tour and try a few beers here. A old friend of mine brews here Alex and I have judged brews together for years. It is an odd place will need to be on your toes when looking for it The place is down the stars and if your near the Rose garden then you are close. Great feel, loved the open tanks they are going to do well. Food is very limited to none.

The place was quite hard to find. I walked through some political conference upstairs before finally finding the stairs to the basement. Itís almost like the brewery is in a dungeon. The beers were VERY interesting even if I didnít love them. Not too far from downtown, so I would recommend it for a Portland brewery tour.
