Widmer is great. The burger and pint deals on Sunday and Monday are simply unbeatable. It is not a rare occasion that servers give out beer samples to everyone in the building, and if you ask for more you'll probably get them. If you go on Monday make reservations!! It can get crowded fast. Beer selection is not what the bottled beer reflects about Widmer; you'll find some tap-only gems here like the Imperial Stout. Usually a good collaborater and seasonal beer on tap as well. Very nice location, good place for the family, good place to go just for a pint. An excellent destination that helps reflect the love of beer that the residents of Portland have.

Visited on a Tuesday afternoon in August. Large rooms, with high ceilings, lamps dangling from very long cords, brick, wood floor, and red walls. Only one silent TV. Very pleasant atmosphere at lunch time. Moderately cowded and a bit noisy, but not bad. (I went once, a few years back, on a weekend evening, when it was ridiculously crowded and the service was... not so good). This time, the young server was enthusiastic and eager to talk beer. 24 taps (not all on): Four year-round brews; four seasonals; and thirteen small batch brews. $5 pints. $12 tasting set of six 5-oz glasses. $1 off on pints during Happy Hour, which is 2-5pm Mon-Fri. Food is good, a cut above the typical pub fare. Sandwiches, burgers, sausages, and a selection of gluten-free choices. Widmer has been upping its game for the past several years. They had been resting on their laurels and depending too much on their flagship Hefeweizen. These days the beer is all good to very good. Go there and see -- but go during daylight hours.

The Widmer facility overall is quite large, but the tap room is actually not that big. We found on our visit a lot of specialties on tap, almost all of which were interesting and well-made. This really made for an enjoyable stop, and certainly anyone bored with the regular Widmer offerings will get a contrasting view of the brewery working through the lineup of aged, barreled, and esoteric offerings here.

Modern feel to this nice brewpub with a large selection of Widmer beers on tap. General quality of the beers is average. Prices are a little higher for Portland, but still reasonable. Service was very friendly. If youíve exhausted

Based on a visit a year ago. Nice venue. Lots of wood. Great service. The limited selection (a surprise beer - not a comment on the number of beers available) was nice. Not too many people while I was there, so a little conversation with staff was available. Shouldnít be missed.

I did not expect much from the tap room of the largest brewery in Oregon, but I was pleasantly surprised. First, the place is not as large as it looks considering the size of its building. Itís no German bierhall, although you could not call it cozy and warm either. Instead, itís a large brewpub with a family friendly restaurant. Staff was very attentive, but did not seem to focus on the beer so much. Thatís unfortunate, because I felt it was their strongest point. I was actually surprised by how poor the food was, straight pub grub, I actually had to return my first plate, short ribs that were badly overcooked. The plateís presentation was not particularly beautiful either. Nothing scandalous, but under average for a brewpub and since youíll hit so many of these in Portland, it would be wise to eat elsewhere. That leaves you with the beer. I was very impressed with Widmerís specialties. First, they donít need them, but they care about beer and aim at satisfying both people who care only for a weizen and those with more adventurous tastes. Secondly, their specialities were all very tasty, impeccably done and often very original. Frankly, the beer was as good as in many breweries with greater reputations. the Gasthaus may not be the most welcoming bar to come to strictly for the beer, but if you want to be surprised by a large brewery who respects critical beer geeks like yourself, hereís your very good chance.

Second visit here. Lamb burger and Rib Eye on the menu but no noodles. Good solid Cobb salad. Good selection of Widmer beers and experimental efforts as well.

Nice place, Widmer has a whole city block! Clean and very professional, attractive old tine signs that I wanted to steal. Food was very nice, had some clams swimming is a garlicky rich bacon broth. Service was prompt and very friendly with nice recommendations for town. Had a marionberry Gose, very nice in a beautiful glass. A little out of the way, but a short walk from Amnesia.

Widmer has been around long enough to know what they are doing with beer. They gasthaus was quite crowded when I dropped in so I opted for the sunny evening outdoor tables. Sometimes service can be lacking at a busy pub at the outdoor seats but my waitress was ON it. She was quick and observant and did not let my water glass or pint glass go dry. They can be a little on the pricey side but they have a great selection to back it up and the happy hour specials make it totally worth while. My food came out fast and hot and tasted great. I have not done the brewery tour here but Widmer does a great job making the whole block smell like fresh malts. Observing through the windows it is quite a production they have going there. I liked that they had some unique brews that you might not see in their store selection. keep up the good work Widmer.
