Beers I had here were great (ESB and Porter). Has a really cool, laid back, neighborhood type feel to it. Did not eat anything but the menu looked nice. Very cool area in front underneath a tent with a bunch of long benches, but it was raining so had to stay inside. My friend and I were just visiting Portland for a week and the bartender helped us find a lot of places around town. The brewer, Chris, also invited us back to the brewery to check out his operation, very nice guy. Would highly recommend this place if you are in town.

This brewpub is pretty mediocre in my opinion. Not in my top 10 breweries/brewpubs of Portland.
Amnesia is one of the better breweries beer-wise in the city. I personally think the brewpub is underrated and don’t understand why anyone wouldn’t like it. It’s a cool, laid back atmosphere in a neat neighborhood (though not stereotypically nice). The beers are always solid and I like the patio outside. Plus there’s a bunch of other awesome places in the area. North Portland rules.
They do a great job with the beers here and I love happy hour. Wish they allowed kids but also understand why they don’t. The food is overpriced but is okay if you are hungry.
Seasonals like Impale and Sleighjerker are really good but you can also never go wrong with the Copacetic.
Outside seating is great year round and it also nice they are so dog friendly.
to hate amnesia is to hate north portland.
how much i wish they always had the double dry hopped copacetic on tap. I’d be there all the time if this was the case.
It is what is it. On a sunny day, few things beat amnesia’s patio. I also enoy the often walking man guest tap. It’s a great pub environment (although there re no kids allowed), there is often a very eclectic gathering of people.enjoying craft beer.
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.
First of all, I love this place in the summer - basically an urban beer garden, with the intoxicating smell of grilling sausages. I always love the Desolation & Copacetic IPAs, the porter & pale are also usually on (and pretty good). Great location to combine on a pub crawl w/ Widmer & Fifth Quadrant (a New Old Lompoc pub). Service is basically walk up to the bar, which is fine but can be really slow. If you want anything other than the really good locally made sausages, a burger or pretzels you are pretty much out of luck (there’s pretty good food at Widmer), but for a relaxed, fun atmosphere with really good beers, this is a great neighborhood 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+.
Went to this place while up in Washington. It was recommended to me by the guy that works at "By The Bottle". Very cool guy that recommended some cool stuff. This place was really cool. Good atmosphere, people outside sitting at picnic style tables, barbecues going, music playing. Pretty good beer too. I really liked their IPA they had and the porter was really good too. The bartender chick was pretty cute and she gave me one free beer. I found it interesting that they did not sell any of their beer bottled. If you wanted beer to go, they served it to you in a 1 liter mason jar. I have never seen that before, pretty cool.
