Good thing I donít live near here, Iíd be in there way too often. Many locals come here for good reason. Growler fills, 5oz ($1.50), 12oz ($3), pitchers ($12), and 750 ml bottles. Very good to excellent, fresh beer, most is saison/saisonesque. Large tap selection. Cool basement location with minimum amount of seating but they will get out the fold up tables and chairs when needed. If you like to eat something when you drink better bring it cause crunchy pork skins are the only thing they have if they donít run out. Of those Iíve tried to date I like the Engleberg Pils (excellent btw), Alphaphlactic IPA, and Saison # 5 best. Difficult to find location is on NORTH BROADWAY (not NE Broadway) which is only a short section of Broadway just north of the Broadway bridge. Itís in the Left Bank building, go down to the "B" in the elevator. Where else can you get a 64 oz pitcher of good quality saison for $12?

Visited this last weekend after HotD sale. First of all, this place is very tricky to find from the google map directions on my iPhone. Thanks to suzyg though, I finally found the place. Tucked away downstairs in a really cool older work loft style building. Walking in, you are literally in the brewery. Right in the front and to the left of me were barrels and a small tasting area. To the right is the brewery. Really cool spot were it seemed the norm to just walk around and check it out. The brewery is super clean and very efficient in the use of space. Really a cool layout. The tasting room was headed by a very nice woman that poured me a taster tray, good size tasters, of everything on draft...for $5. They also sell bottles, growlers and some shirts/hats. Solid place and I canít wait to go back again.

You walk up to a cool old brick building that appears to be completely occupied by businesses that have nothing to do with brewing. It actually almost is completely occupied with other businesses. Thereís a little sandwich board sign out front that says "BEER" and thatís your cue that youíre in the right spot. Inside, you wind your way through a coffee shop and down hallways looking for the door to the stairs. Then there are more hallways and staircases that feel like an MC Escher illustration at some points, then you finally zigzag your way to the back of the basement, where the brewhouse awaits. Itís not really that big, maybe a thousand square feet, and theyíve filled most of it with barrels and equipment. But they pull out some tables after the brewday is done, and the assistant brewers end up pouring beer many evenings. Thatís super cool--you really learn about the beers with them being the bartenders. They have about a dozen taps, and often have bottles in the cooler that they will crack. Prices are good, and the tap stuff is often sparkling fresh (though many of their beers benefit from aging, so freshness doesnít automatically equate to quality here). Their beers range from good to world-class, and they make many different styles (with a heavy emphasis on saisons). Prices and staff are everything you could reasonably ask for. If you dig beer and you hit Portland, you really have to check this place out.

I had a great experience here recently. Came on a Sunday afternoon..apparently about a half hour before they opened...wondered around trying to find the place and the entrance. When I finally did...it was still an adventure to locate the tasting room in the basement. There were only 4 or 5 people and one person running the place. Naturally I tasted all the beers...loved half...liked the rest. Make sure you buy the mustard made with their beer too.

Cool location down in the basement. Smaller than some of the other tasting rooms with about 8 taps. Friendly staff though and nice selection if mustards for sale.

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.

This basement brewpub is hard to find, but well worth the effort. The brewing equipment is visible from the seating area, which consists of 3 small tables. On a Sunday afternoon there was an informal Bluegrass oriented band playing. There is an underground ambience to the place that makes for an interesting time. The 8 beers on tap were excellent to fabulous and can be consumed in pints or in taster flilghts. The barkeep (owner?) was very helpful and friendly. A nice stop.

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.

OK, I loved this place. It was in a basement. It was hard to find with impossible hours. Almost no seating. Wait, but there were tons of happy people! Prices super fair. The guy pouring the beer knew a ton (I think he brewed as well). It was a great location for true beer nerds. The non-beer geeks would never find it. Lots of chatting between groups.
