Visited on Friday 24/05/13 whilst winding our way back from Bend to PDX via Hood River. This was the last stop of the day at around 7/7.30pm where we decided to take on some ballast.
Quite the dive bar feel with access from a staircase of the main road to a lower level basement affair.
The place was fairly busy but we managed to grab one of the last tables for our party of 6.
8 of their own beers on tap, all were ok stuff, no world beaters.
Food menu had some variety to it but we all chose to share pizzas which were good with some interesting topping choices you wouldn’t ordinarily see. Service was a bit hit and miss, one of our beers was forgotton about and there were quite a few 2 or 3 minute spells with no serving presence, our waitress was a bit moody with it.
Worth stopping by if you’re heading to other places in the area although I wouldn’t recommend the hour or so’s drive from PDX just to hit on Walking Man.

I had to visit this place on my second visit to Portland after having enjoyed their beers possibly more greatly than any other breweries at an old GABF edition. The building has a far west, I survived the war weary look, and you need to get to the basement which might as well be your average pub in Prague for all its minimal decorum and old green walls. Yet I was impressed that out of the 10 patrons that were waiting for the place to open with ourselves at 4 pm, many were obvious beer enthusiats who had traveled from all over the place to be there on a weekday. I guess the relative proximity to Portland and tourist attractions like Multnomah Falls helps, but the clientele seemed to consist more of beer geeks than locals on that day. As for the beers, I feel like I fell on a bad day on which none of the big canons were on the board, but all that was tasted was of a very high quality level. We did not eat, but the service was still friendly and seemingly knowledgeable. I guess I can’t recommend hitting this place at any cost considering the ridiculous number of breweries in the Portland vicinities, but if you visit Multnomah, it definitely becomes a must. Or check the beer list on the web if you’re anywhere close and if the canons are there, do yourself a favor and come by.

Have been drinking their beers in Portland for several years, finally made it to the pub. The ambiance is mixed & funky, indoors is the nicest, though on a hot day like today outdoors has its advantages, One server had solid personality while the other was making the motions. No guest taps, but their own brews cover a wide range. We had the 3 hoppy ones--homo erectus, knuckle dragger and IPA. I’ve never had a pizza with pickles before but this worked, fine crust. Kind of small menu, but seem to be quality ingredients. then a long train comes by.

This place is awesome but small and the beers they brew are Big. Damn good brews. Don’t pass it up! Burger, fries and salad all good. The bathrooms are a nice twist too!

Walking Man is located barely in Washington in the small town of Stevenson. The brewpub is located at the foot of the “downtown” area. From street level there are steps that lead to the bar and courtyard. Most of the patrons were sitting outside in the courtyard just outside of the bar since the weather was nice. The bar area was dimly lit and rather small but with the combined outdoor seating seemed adequate. The service was good. The selection of beers was Walking Man only, many of which I did not find at other establishments in nearby Portland. I did not try the food. Reasonably priced. As far as I could tell this brewery does not bottle anything and is worth a stop to try some good beers that you are unlikely to find anywhere else.

This place is all about the beer. I live in Portland and I would say they make the best beer in the Pacific Northwest. The building is small and comfortable with some cool outdoor seating. Pretty small menu is just enough to satisfy while keeping the focus where it belongs. Every single beer they make is in my top 3 beers in that category. Well worth the 45 minute trip from PDX!

Jumped the river on a trip from Portland to Hood River. Small brew pub in a small downtown. We sat near the garden which was very relaxing. Basic pub grub fit the bill for us. Good brews and a casual atmosphere. Worth a visit.

Small, downstairs brewpub. All high-quality Walking Man brews on tap which is the main attraction to this place. We had gotten a really delicious pizza and some greasy pub fare appetizers. The entrees are only pizzas so don’t come hoping to get a sandwich or something. I was surprised they didn’t have any Homo Erectus on tap (maybe it’s a seasonal). The Jay Walker Imp. Stout did just fine though.
