In my opinion, the best brewery/brewpub in the Portland city limits.
Every beer is excellent. You can’t really go wrong. Standouts would be:
Ace of Spades Imperial IPA
Galactic Imperial Red
Plus any from the standard line up!
The food is also top notch pub fare and locally/sustainably made! Pretty extensive menu including salads, sandwiches, wings and pizza.
Hopworks is one of my favorite breweries, they have an amazing happy hour with great food at crazy low prices. Most of their beer is wonderful, the service is ALWAYS fast and friendly. It feels like home. If you’re an IPA fan, try their IPA.
This was one of my favorite brewpubs to visit in Portland, maybe even my most favorite. The atmosphere is lively and hippie. It really makes one feel like he is in Portland. Service was very attentive and the beer, affordable anyway, was a super deal at happy hour. The menu looked very attractive but we had all just eaten and couldn’t partake of any more food. The beers I tried were all very solid and representative of the PNW beer scene. I enjoyed the vibe and the brews immensely.
Came by here on a weekday afternoon for lunch and beers and was not disappointed. The beer sampler platter had a good mix of seasonal and year-round brews to try. My favorites were the Lager, Pale Ale, IPA and Black IPA. Definitely the best Organic beer that I’ve tried up to this point. Also ordered a brat sandwich and cajun fries that were quite good. I would definitely frequent this place often if I lived in the area as it’s one of the few brewpubs that offers lots of healthy food options (salads, vegan pizzas, etc) as opposed to nothing but greasy meat and fried stuff.

I give HUB props for being environmentally conscious ie: using windpower, recycling, creating organic beers and using local ingredients. Plus their beers are wonderfully crafted with great variety. They are also one of the only breweries to slip into the SE quadrant of PDX. Biketobeer fest was a great event here promoting biking in PDX. There were 1000’s of bikes throughout the day. They had a wide selection of 15 different beers on hand for this event.
We went here for lunch with our infant son, they were very happy to give us a nice quiet spot. Food was excellent and the portions were huge. We ordered a sample tray of beer and the waiter had no description for any of them "ummm it’s good." Luckily most were self descriptive and I just looked up the others on my phone. Almost every beer was top notch. This would probably be a regular stop for me if I lived anywhere nearby.
