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.

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.

Was here during the Fantasia release. Very lucky vacation time to be here. It was quite crowded, but still loved it. As others have mentioned it was in the basement of law firm I think. Lots of tanks all around. Very small "tasting" room, but everyone was all around. Nice feel, great people, greater beer.

This place is all about the beer. Wierd commercial basement location with a small corner of beer taps. Nice selection with samplers or full pours. Very limited hours but if youre in town you should definitely hit it up and try a couple samplers of amazing beer.

The wholegrain mustard with the pretzels is incredible. Totally worth buying it. Yum. Oh, and the beer is good too.

A quaint little tasting room in the basement of an unsuspecting building with a lovely charm. The brewmaster pours 10 (9 Upright) beers on tap in sampler sizes, 12 oz pours or growler fills for very reasonable prices, along with offering a few bottles to go. Great little place to stop in on a warm day for some of Uprightís saison specialties.

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.

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.

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?
