Great place. Quirky joint, you just end up finding a spot on the brew floor and sup away. The pints were cheap! And some of Uprights rarer stuff at that price was ridiculous. Weird hours and location do make it somewhere I doubt Iíll spend an awful lot of time, but itís worth the trip on occasion.

Visited on a Sunday (entrance is at the front of the building, then go down to the basement and follow the smell of brewing and beer). There was some great live acoustic music playing, tables set up to sit at, and a nice sample of all the regular upright beers along with 5 different taps. They also had one one-off for sale still in bottles. All the samples were pretty cheap (same with growler fills or full pours) and it was pretty neat to sit in an actual brewery (some tables were set up beside the vats etc) and drink their beer in a relaxed atmoshphere.

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.

Parking is not easy here but if you use public transit or just walk itís not a problem. When I was here there was nothing on the ground floor, the place was empty. Take the elevator down to the basement and walk around the barrels lying all over the place and go to the back corner where there is a folding table set up with a guy hanging out in the vicinity that will serve drinks. They have some bottles available but the Sole Composition bottles are the ones that people go for. They do very good saisons for the most part. They do a lot of experimentation so they do miss on occasion but they do a good job all around. Theyíre also one of the few breweries that I know that does multiple goses through out the year. Prices are reasonable on all their bottles and the draft stuff as well. Iíd love to return some time soon.

At the end of your parking quest and walk through the maze to the basement you find this gem. Enjoy, we did.

The basement brewery. Tucked away at the bottom of the Left Bank project, itís reminiscent of a speakeasy with barrels everywhere. Service has gotten much better since the hiring of their new íbartenderí, and itís very relaxed most of the time. Tap selection is minimal but since 4 of the 8 are in constant rotation, itís worthy of a visit because itís unlikely to be unchanged. The value is ridiculous, and well deserving of a 10. Highly recommended.

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!!

I had a great experience here recently. Came on a Sunday afternoon..apparently about a half hour before they opened...wandered 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.

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!
