Given the great beer bars here this is a cut below. Friendly great service. Beer just not world class.

Busy bar full of tourists in the commercial area of Portland. Seven of their beers on tap, though nothing striking. Large pub food menu, nice view at the back, nothing too bad or too good about it.

Nice old brick style brewpub with 7 or so draft options. Kids allowed. Tables are a little weird, they couldn’t fit their taster board without pushing into the people’s plates on the other side of the table. Okay place, not stellar but a good place to stop if you’re not headed somewhere specific.

In around 3:30 on a lazy Saturday toward the end of June 2017. A few people in, but not crowded. Copper bar top looks shiny and well kept, or like it has been replaced recently. Fun intimate atmosphere. Was honestly not expecting much, but it’s a fun place. Bar seats 8, table space for maybe another 15. Service was super friendly.
Didn’t spot it until I went to the restroom, which is upstairs, but the upstairs space is huge, and is probably the actual space with the lower level that I spent my time in being a secondary spot for old curmudgeons. Upstairs was a huge open space with a second bar and enough table space for another 50+ easily.
One of the brewers was hanging out at the downstairs bar and told me about one of their smaller batch things, which was a mosaic and citra (and something else that he didn’t recall off the top of his head) IPA dry hopped with galaxy. It was actually rather nice. So there is some new stuff and innovation, but if that brewer is good I doubt he’ll stay there too long before moving on to someplace that can appreciate that level of talent, as I couldn’t see a young brewer with that level of drive sticking around in a place that’s making beers that weren’t cutting edge 20 years ago.
If you’re doing the walking tour of Portland breweries I guess it might be worth visiting, but I wouldn’t prioritize it, and if you’re tight on time, it’s very low on the list.

Lovely old school pub ambience. Packed and noisy on a Saturday night. They had 6 in the full time lineup and a couple of seasonals. What I had ranged from mediocre to terrible. The food was chain restaurant quality. At least the people were mostly nice.

Who leaves a world class joint to tick a new brewery me the fool. Anyways standard pub place with mugs on ceiling. Regular music no ambiance beers basic had a cask ale which is a plus. Anyways in a lease a town this may shine a bit more.

Standard Pub food, basic brewpub beer quality, the staff knowledge about crafter is limited. Family place for lunch and sports fan for diner and night.

Centrally located in the Old Port, a great place to stop in for a beer with friends. They usually have one or two seasonals going, plus the classics. I’ve never really thought their beer was amazing in any way, but it’s a fun place to chill.

A quite cozy place, looking ofd-fashioned with several rooms and wooden panels. The beers are rather dull seen from a beer enthusiast point of view, but clean and honest. They are honest about their selection as well, and told us that they had chosen to go for beers that wouldn’t frighten anyone as they were situated in the tourist area. I think they’re wrong doing so, but it’s of course up to them.

Old cozy brown brewpub. Friendly service and there are nothing wrong with the beers here they are just really boring. Would probably not go here again.
