Visited with Douglas88. Large garage type place with brewing equipment to the rear, long bar and a few tables up front. A grill and more tables outside. Easy street parking late on a Friday night. Eight or so beers available as a flight, nothing bad but nothing too exciting either. Sadly we had just mossed the food. Middle of the road.

Not located in a great part of town. Park close. Building is a medium sized warehouse with patio seating inside and out and a nice wooden bar inside. 4 house beers on tap, all very good, with a couple of guest taps. Folks here were very nice and attentive, at one point even bringing out the brewers notebook to tell me some information about a recipe. They host a number of music events, bluegrass and folk music mostly so I like that. A decent enough place, but not really on the way to or from anywhere. Their beer should start appearing around Portland (Rose & Raindrop, I’ve heard) early in 2005.
Visited around 3.30pm on Wednesday 7/11/12.
Only 2 other dinkers in this medium sized bar with a large enough outside patio area.
8 beers on tap and a 6 beer sampler available which was good vfm at (from memory) $6 or so .
Slightly run down feel, but not too scruffy.
Service was prompt but the place was pretty dead.
Beers OK fayre - no world beaters.

Another non-corporate brewpub. Shed-like ambiance and a few house beers. None of those were stellar, but none bad either. They had a barbeque out front. Spacious and communal. Not to everyone’s taste I don’t imagine but I like that sort of place.
Relatively small place that must be very tight in the winter, but more than doubles its space with the summer terrace. Oldish mid forest shack, mid garage atmosphere. Then, it becomes a locals hangout, relatively hip, yet neighborhood feeling. Disappointing beer list which contained only 5 beers when we visited, but the Copacetic IPA was more than satisfying. Good prices, friendly staff behind the bar. Certainly not a must in Portland, but not too far from downtown. If you’re on a Portland beer run, I’d come here if you have 4 days+.
Here I sit in Old Portland neighborhood drinking a great beer in a place that if not for the sign I would have never stopped. Finally after a few years of trying I had the time to stop at Amnesia brewing great brews, service and food. I liked the atmosphere and the brews where so sound and high caliber this was a true Portland Craft brewer. The food I found odd to be cooked in an outdoor setting under a semi permanent tent but all in all it was very good. This is not for the kids this is for the true craft beer seeker. There will be no wimpy pale ales here there all have hops and then more hops. I recommended this place for the hard core beer geek.

This brewpub is pretty mediocre in my opinion. Not in my top 10 breweries/brewpubs of Portland.
Our stop here on a brewpub crawl in Portland was poorly planed, since we got here before opening hours, which during weekdays isn’t before 4 PM. But luckily for us they were brewing and I was in a group of brewmasters, so we were let into the brewery and given a brief introduction to the brewery and the opportunity to sample their beers. The brewery is set in a shack, but the brewery itself is iin really good condition. The bar area reminds me of a saloon, lots of wood and picnick tables. I got 5 new ratings here.
Interesting place. Dimly lighted, open very late. Didn’t have any food. Had 8 beers on tap, all were decent to good. The service was good, but the crowd was sparse. Sort of like hanging out in your buddy’s barn or garage. Well...if he had 8 taps of brew.
