In a word, stunning. A virtual Oregon Beer Museum. I would give a 10 for ambiance if I could. Whether you are a local or a visitor, this should absolutely be on your must-visit list. First let me cut to the chase: this is more about the place and less about the beer. I was torn on what to rate them for selection because, well, it’s all Deschutes. Which is fine, but I thought they might have more of their specialty stuff lying around. They had probably 12 taps. They did have their new (very highly rated) XX Porter flowing. That was a real treat. But not even a drop double IPA, which would have been nice. Everything else was pretty standard, but good. Bottom line: you need to come here and just SEE it. Amazing. Also, the food was some of the best pub grub I’ve ever had and prices were quite reasonable, unlike say Pike Brewery in Seattle. Probably one of the best Reuben sandwiches I’ve ever had, and I’m a freak for Reubens. Service was OK, but not special. Because the place is so big, it has a big staff and does high volumes. So my guess is it will be hard to get really good personalized service, especially if you want to get any juicy tidbits of info about the beers. One of the quirky things here—I’m curious to see how long this lasts—is a small copper chute that comes out of the wall about 9’ above the back bar. Its purpose? You are supposed to throw tip money at it (coins). If you hit the chute, it funnels down and comes back out into a spittoon, the bar tip jar. I saw people throw coins from 20’ away. It’s all fun until someone loses an eye.

I had a party of 4, we arrived on a late Sunday afternoon and waited for about 30 minutes to be seated, which we expected. The place is really big and really busy but service was excellent and our server was very helpful and willing to discuss the beer they had available. The wood carved interior is really cool. There are some rarities on the menu and they cost a pretty penny but overall the prices were pretty good. We just ordered a couple appetizers but they were decently priced and damn delicious. This is certainly a big operation and due to the popularity you won't get an intimate experience but their beer and food are top notch.

Visited August 2016. Huge pub, massively busy on a midweek late afternoon. Tricky to find a seat, even though I was on my own. Found a place at the bar. Service was OK given how busy it was. The beers were reasonable.

In the door about quarter after noon on the second Sunday in July 2017. Huge place with a load of customers already (open 75 minutes). They continued to stay pretty packed the whole time I was there, and I’d guess most Sundays are like that, with large brunch and lunch crowds.
Flights of six run $13, and then individual small pours can be obtained as well. Extra $2 on stuff that’s on the rotating old rare keg lists, but that’s totally fine. Can’t imagine there’s a ton of those things left, and neat to have stuff that’s been taken care of for that long.
Prices are decent enough, and servers were friendly and did a good job keeping up with the lunch and brunch rush. Worth a visit.

Big new semi-corporate looking building. Decent tap list with brewery only bottles available to go as a bonus. Food was decent and worth a stop as most of the Brew Pubs are across the river.

Visited March 2017. I think Deschutes is one of the best ’big’ breweries in the states. It was welcomed (and sort of unsurprising) to learn that it operates a very professional mega-brewpub operation. The Portland outpost is a huge space that seemed packed with tourists and casuals. Staff didn’t seem overwhelmed and were very quick to serve. The expansive tap list featured a pleasingly diverse lineup of core beers and brewpub exclusives. Everything, as expected, was well executed and generally tasty. No faults here. A pleasant - if impersonal and somewhat corporate - drinking experience.

Big and bustling, and quite noisy too. Nice offerings on top of their flagship lineups. Food was not spectacular and a bit expensive. Fixed flights are also a drawback.

Taphouse zapchany ludźmi, nigdzie nie było miejsca by spokojnie napić się piwa. Wziąłem szybka deskę i musiałem opuścić ten bazar. Szkoda bo bardzo fajne miejsce i piwa były naprawdę dobre.

Like so many watering holes built by the larger craft brewers, the Deschutes Public House has a posh, factory-buildiing renovation feel. High ceilings, fancy decor. Had lunch here. Lots of families and groups in the dining area. Our server was excellent and so was the food. Tap list had all the usual Deschutes suspects as well as seasonal and experimental beers. Lots of good beer places in Portland and a lot of them more suitable for beer geeks. If this is your one and only trip to Portland and you’re looking for a beer geek kind of place, go elsewhere. But for a good meal with plenty of Deschutes tap choices, this is just fine.

Amazingly cool building in a very cool part of the city, great range of beers, including some rare stuff, well worth the effort to find.

Stopped here for dinner after a cross-country flight. First stop in PDX. Great-looking older building with interesting decor and a nice bartop. Great service, attentive, friendly, and easy with the samples to make sure you get something you like. Had the elk burger; everything down to the homemade pickles were fantastic. A must-visit.
