Clean and polished inside. Great service and near a lot of other beer attractions in the area. Food was good and there was a decent selection of taps (sours and non-sours) and bottles. Some bottles are to go and others are for on-site only. Worth a stop for sure, especially if you are with sour lovers. If they could get away from the overly acidic character they have going on in 90% of their sours I would be coming back often.
Ummmmmmm. Yeah. Crazy ass place. Unbelievable selection, far surpassing expectations. I was totally enthralled, didn’t rate a single beer. Tried every single sour! It was like each was better than the next. Highlights may be Noyaux, Frite Galois, the Apricot, the Rasperry, Vine, and Sang family. Overwhelmingly awesome.
My second ’must stop’ while visiting Oregon for the first time - a bit sketchy walk from across the river...glad it was daytime. Anyway, if sours are your game, this is the place to be...a couple sours were a bit odd, but most were amazingly good. Service was actually quite slow, which when you’re limited to two (relatively small) tasters at a time, can get quite frustrating! Selection was damn near incredible - think there were 15 different sours on tap to choose from. Food wasn’t the greatest, but given we only tried a couple items, I wouldn’t throw it completely under the bus. Value was okay - you can go through quite a bit of change here and still be able to walk a straight line...but again, great beer makes the value palatable. Definitely would return...
Because of a hot day I decided to sit down outside, which was pleasant though a few noisy trucks passed by. Service was quick and good, the food tasted great and the selection of Cascade beer on draught amazing. If sour is your thing this is the place to go in Portland. Visited: 2014-07-21

I really enjoyed the very adventurous sour selection here; especially with the beer being paired very well with a magnificent charcuterie plate. The decor was minimalist, but I really enjoyed the loading dock feel. Highly recommended.
Visited last year on a lazy weekday afternoon. Nondescript, but very clean and minimal inside, plenty of room at the bar. Didn’t have any food, but the menu looked solid. Excellent selection of the entire Cascade line on tap, including some draft-only stuff, like the non-soured Vlad and Bourbonic. Had a few sample size glasses, incredibly priced at only $2 per. Bartender was friendly and knew her stuff. Only gripe is the bottle prices (between $20 and $30), but these beers take a lot of time to make, and I understand. Great overall experience, and one of the main reasons I’m jealous of everyone who lives in Portland.
Nice atmosphere, and a great place to have beer outside on a warm summer day. Very close to downtown but far enough to keep the crowd away. Great selection of sour beer. Food matches the beer selection very well
Located in the industrial area across the bridge from downtown. Large selection of sours and non-sours on tap, and on live barrels(!). Vintage bottles available to go as well. A bit pricey, but the beers were really great. Didn’t try the food here myself, but according to my friend it was really good. Only had time to try out the sours, but will definitely be back here the next time I’m around.
Comfortable spot with lots of outdoor seating, tables or bar spaces depending on your preference. This is the cascade to choose if you want to tick sours. They had 10 staples on tap with 2 live sour beers. They had 8 non sours, but they weren’t very good, come to tick sours only. You can do 2 tasters at a time, which is perfect considering how sour these beers. Super nice service. Innovative and seasonal menu that is intriguing, lots of thing look worth trying. Lots of schwag in the form of shirts, glasses, and almost every sour is available in a bottle to go. I had a great time here and would love to come back to tick every sour again. Worth stopping for sure if you can get through acid reflux.
