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.

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?

Visited while roadtripping through Oregon and Washington. It was about 2 years ago since I visited, so things may have changed slightly. The location was difficult to find, it was located in the basement of an office building with no real signs pointing you to the entrance. When you got down there, it was really cool. Drinking beers among many barrels aging different specialty beers. Very cool. I would love to go back.

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.

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.
