Visited for lunch on Wednesday 7th November í12.
Medium sized place, lots of wood with some booths by the bar where 5 of us camped out for an hour.
Also an outside patio with covered roof for smokers.
Beers all from NOL - around 11 in total on tap. Picked up the sampler which was decent VFM, think it was $8 for 8 beers, could have been $10? 5 standard taps, a seasonal, then you got to choose 2 specials yourself.
Food was OK/AVE - had MacíníCheese with crab, not a lot of crab and not the best MacíníCheese but it filled a hole!
Service was fairly attentive but I got pissed off after querying my sample tray. I was served 2 porters instead of a CDA and a porter. We all smelt the beers and agreed they were the same. Waitress wasnít having it, she told me what the initials CDA stood for and that it was supposed to be black - NO SHIT SHERLOCK ! I told her to taste it and smell it - she wouldnít. She replaced it wth a sample of black beer that smelt hoppy and piney. This got me a little pissed, we all make mistakes, hold your hand up and donít presume folks know feck all about beer styles!!!
Iíd reccomend this place for a first time visitor in Portland to wrack up some rates, but I wouldnít go back there, nowt wrong with the place but the beer was nothing particularly special and the food/service was average.

Nice outdoor seating. Comfortable feel indoors. Great place to watch a soccer match. LOVE the $3.50 happy hour all day Sat. & Sun.

Finally made it to this place after years of trying. They have a great tap list and the brewery was kick ass to see. Next to the New Old Lompoc this is a must see in the Portland tours. Fun place to people watch thatís for sure.

Smallish place, covered patio/deck on the side. Very laid back mood. Good service. Lots of New Old Lompos stuff which were all very tasty. Food was above average pub grub. Worth seeking out.

This is part of the New Old Lompoc kingdom. Itís in a former auto parts shop but has been remodelled. On warm days itís airy, and comfortable, and thereís a covered patio. Food is Ami bierpubkos, nothing really bad, but not really outstanding. They have all the New Old Lompoc beers, and some seasonals, a Belgian Stout, a Helles and a Belgian dark. Macros in bottles. Service is fast, but rather mechanical. It is a good place for people watching, and the hipster, too cool to car about anything mob hasnít invaded it. Parking is on the street
