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).

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.

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.

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.

Impossible to find, small brewery tasting room - in the basement of a bank - no exterior signage - almost like they donít want to be found - in a basement, so kind of dank - very limited seating - cash only - a few bottles for sale - about six in- house beers for sale on tap, plus a few bottles to go - prices are awesome - 3 buck 12 ounces, 1.50 4 ounce tasters - server was indifferent and kind of douchie - acted like he would rather be somewhere else - other than that, an awesome spot - just be prepared to have a hard time finding it.

I visited this place on a Friday night. It was a bit of a pain in the ass to find. I forget the name of the building, but there is an annex across the street from it, which I walked around several times. The streets in this part of town magically change. Anyway, I found the building, but there were apparently no stairs down to the basement. I managed to find the stairs down and took some back way of getting down there. The brewery reminds me of an art classroom. Two picnic tables, and two unsturdy tall tables with no seating. Some tanks to the right, and a small wall of taps to the left. Barrels in the back. They had a decent number of beers on tap...about 10. I had a sampler, and I was pretty underwhelmed. The best part of this place was the conversation I had with some honeymooners.

Upright has to be one of the more unique breweries that Iíve been to for several reasons. For one, itís located in a basement and you would never know you were going to a brewery as you descend in the elevator from the hallway outside a small cafe in a seemingly random building next to the Rose Garden. Upright is also unique for the type of beers that they produce: Belgian-influenced farmhouse ales. They brew a core lineup of beers with Wyeastís French Saison yeast strain. Four is a table saison, Five is a hoppy mid-strength saison, Six is a dark rye saison, and Seven is a strong blond saison. All share the house yeast character and are fermented in open fermenters that you are free to check out through glass as you sample beers in the tasting room which doubles as a corner of the brewery next to the cold box. I like what these guys are doing, and they really stand out as unique among the more typical breweries of the area pumping out IPAs, pale ales, porters and the like. They even had a gruit on tap, as well as a barrel-aged version of Four with rose petals and yarrow, and a special version of Six spiced with long peppercorns. I would definitely check back in on these guys the next time Iím in Portland. Thereís no telling what theyíll have come up with by then.
