Went on a Sunday afternoon, and it was great. In the basement of the Left Bank building, this small, but roomy tasting room, was a lovely time. The beer was wonderful, with #6 standing out, and diverse. Everything from hoppy, to funky, to malty, to smokey. No food, but bread was made available at all tables. There was old jazz playing from an old record player that set the mood, and barrels all around that remind you of the creativity of Uprightís beers. A great place to go if you want to enjoy some interesting, and creative beers.

Fantastic new brewery located in the basement of an office building not far from the Rose Garden. There are just a couple of tables as most of the space is dedicated to making their Belgian Farmhouse style beers. The staff are also very knowledgeable and helpful. The beer sampler plate was $6.50 and included 6 different brews. My personal favorites were the Four, Seven and the Late Harvest. Overall, itís a great place to hang out and spend the afternoon sampling quality beers. Hopefully theyíll continue to expand and distribute their beers outside of the Pacific Northwest as they make extremely flavorful and original brews.

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.

This was one of the coolest brewery experiences Iíve ever had. You walk into a coffee shop in an industrial building, and thereís a sign pointing the elevator that says "Upright, basement". You literally walk into the brewery. There are 6 taps with amazing things to try. You hang out and drink by all the barrels. Go here!!

One of my favorite stops in Portland during our trip. Not the easiest to find and parking is horrible, but worth the search. Bare bones taproom in the basement of the building, but I dig the tables and drinking amongst their barrels and brewing equipment. Beers are super cheap and all very delicious. People were friendly and the selection was great. You cannot come to Portland and not make it to Upright.

Of all the places n Portland we went, this was the most Portlandy. Located in a basement, cash only, seating amongst the fermenters, and music provided by a vinyl record player (of course). Going to the bathroom was like stumbling in to a David Lynch Movie if you make a wrong turn. Oh, and of course plenty of great beer to be had...

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.

This is great brewery addition to Portland. A new brewer not producing the expected NW style IPAs. The tasting room is open on weekends. Free samples of any of the 7ish house beers on tap. $2 for 12oz pours, plus reasonably priced growler fills. Alex is super nice to chat with and will tell you about all the beers of course. He has the kegs being poured in a little annex attached to the brewery, where thereís barrels aging some beers around a handful of tables.

Somewhat hard to find location. These guys produce some of the best and most consistent beers in Portland right now. The place is only a tasting room, so no food isnít offered here. This joint is all about uncompromised, open-fermentor farmhouse-style ales; a nitch that has yet to be filled in this so-called "flooded" market here in beer town, USA. Need I say more?
