Killer place with old school jazz playing in the background. The bartender was off lighting candles everywhere when I walked in. Bags of various brewing materials daunt the dining room. YOu can bring in your own vinyl, so I requested some Coltrane and that was cool to sit and drink some good quality beers and listen to soothing jazz. No one is going to bother you here, drink until dismay and no one will blink an eye. They have a more than adorable bartender and did I mention the great jazz, how cool is that? Or it could have just been I was hammered by the time I left here, who knows
The selection was ok. Makes 5 different beers, all which were good, but not overly noteworthy. I went to this place just for the name. It is small with most of the seating outside. The had a large grill going for burgers and dogs. The food was pub fare and ok. Not a bad place if you have time, but certainly others that are more note worthy
Located in a converted metal working warehouse with a open air feel. The beers are very good and the staff was friendly. I didnít have any of the food but a friend of mine did have a burger a liked it. Cool place.
Neat location -- a corrugated metal warehouse kind of place. We sat outside under a tent that was attached. Food was limited -- they were serving up sausages -- but what there was was decent enough. The weakest offering on the day was the beer, which struck me as a series of below average offerings.

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 everyoneís taste I donít imagine but I like that sort of place.

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, Iíve heard) early in 2005.
A interesting brew pub to say the least, very empty feeling inside. They had four of their own brews on tap, kinda ok brew but nothing special. They make a nice porter. Two guest taps, one rogue and one with a mead on tap that was good. Nice staff and quiet atmosphere, but i donít think iíll be a regular here unless they make some better brews.
This place is about a block north of Freemont on NW Mississippi. Itís a little hard to make out, but look for the tent out front with picnic tables under it. Inside is fairly small and dark. The bartender said they have live music on many nights. Service was great. The guest taps have now dwindled down to only Rogue Youngerís Special Bitter. They also had 4 of their own beers on tap, the porter being the best by far. they also had blackberry mead on tap. Food menu consists of lots of sausages. Itís an ok place with ok beer. Weíll go back later and see if the beer/selection improves.

Just up the block from Widmer brewing. Has an ex-automotive shop feel with good ambiance. Nice sized patio. Inside is concrete and steel walled, but tastefully done and decored. The staff is all íPortland typesí, very nice people though. Some decent beers on tap, nothing awesome. Cool relaxed feeling. Park benches for tables. Hell yeah.
