The new standard for tavern in Portland. No booze, no food, just beer. With Bailey’s, Green Dragon, and Deschutes Brewpub all opening up in the last year, Portland’s already sweet beer bar scene is improving substantially. This place is small and simple. I like. It is also very easy on the eyes and just FEELS GOOD to be in. It’s like having slippers & sweats on. They only pour West Coast beers when it comes to their tap selections. Personally I think that puts limits where limits don’t need to be, so my selection score is lower for that reason, though to be fair there was a little more geographic range in bottle menu. I get the whole support-local thing, but you can do that w/o making it totally exclusive. Aside from that, which I hope will change, this place is awesome and bounces right to the top of my list for places to visit anytime I hit P-town. I also love the location right downtown on Broadway, just off Burnside.

Interesting beers on tap is pretty much the standard here. And many of the beers among the 26 rotating taps are from Oregon. The decor is simple and kind of cozy — a bit like a cafe though they don’t serve food. The place was not filled the two times I visited recently (the huge ice storm could have something to do with that), so it was fairly quiet and comfortable. (I’ve been here on visits to Portland when it’s been crowded and it can get a little loud.) Good service, quality staff. The digital beer menu system that links to their website is nice. One of my favorite beer geek places in Portland.

Very good selection of beers and nice atmosphere even though the bar felt a bit too stiff. Lots of nice people hanging out and I’m not unsatisfied, but expected a bit more.

Very good selection of great beers. High tech draft board which is nice. Service was excellent with two very nice and knowledgeable guys behind the bar. Very noisy even though they didn’t allow minors (kudos for that!) but the accustics (sp?) In the room is just poor

Small, tech draft board place that the bartender says focuses on ipas. There were was a decent amount of very local stuff from breweries I’ve never heard so that was cool. They offer full and half pours another bonus. However, nothing on tap was stellar mostly average stuff. I’d like to visit again to see if I was there on an off night, but I was hoping to be wowed and I wasn’t.

Maybe the greatest beer bar in the country, no seriously. We hightailed it here to grab a pint off (what would be) the bottom of a Pliny keg. Amazing. Incredible menu and method of display. The only limitation here was my body’s ability to process alcohol. Seriously, I was salivating at the possibility of trying at least 15 options

Visited on a late Tuesday evening in March 2016, about a hour before closing time. The place was quite small, modern and slightly "sterile". The selection was good, and I liked the electronic tap list. The service was good although impersonal. Very nice location in downtown Portland, around 6 minutes walk from my hotel. (Marc Spencer)

Honestly, I was expecting more from a world renown establishment. Ambiance was fine. The place is decent inside. Service was alright. Beertenders were a little uninspired in my opinion, and myself being a waiter for 8 years that is a strong statement. Selection was just okay. I simply expected a lot more. Prices were not bad.

I loved this place. Cramped bar but great selection, fantastic live updates to the taplist, and quick and friendly service. I was at a conference and made this a nightly visit!

Here shortly after 5 on a Tuesday, and it’s crowded as hell. Flights of 5 for 10 bucks - good deal. Great tap list. Too crowded to enjoy it much.
