The Brass used to be my favorite pub in Portland. Since the January 1, 2009 Oregon Smoking Ban went into effect the pub has completely changed. The crowd is now louder and more intent on getting drunk than enjoying a few great pints. The staff has also gone down hill, they are harder to get service from, less friendly, and know less about the beers they are pouring. The food however hasn’t changed, you can still get the best fish and chips in Portland and a scotch egg. The beer list is as great as ever, it just can’t be beat. Even though I can’t find a place to beat the beer selection I still don’t find myself going here anymore. I used to head in once a week if I could I now find myself going once every few months, and only during lunch hours.

Without a doubt, one of the top three pubs in Portland. Dark, cozy, festive: a place to cool down on a hot summer day or warm up in the rainy winter. Fantastic rotation of "guest" beers in addition to a strong core befitting a British-style pub. Surprisingly good food, if you pick right - the fish and chips for instance are fantastic.

No matter how many times, I visit Portland, the world renown Horse Brass Pub is always on my list. It is a classic venue to quaff some excellent beers. Opened as a traditional English pub, with a rambling and woody interior, serving over 50 local, national and international beers (in a proper imperial pint glass), Horse Brass offers a wonderful experience. In addition to the beer, there is the pub grub, such as Scottish Eggs, fish and chips and (my favorite) bangers and mash - with peas. But the beers are the thing; in my case, an IPA from Breakside (see my review), Modern Times pilsner, a brew from Laurelwood and (my favorite English beer), Old Speckled Hen. Though a bit out of the city in the Belmont district, you can easily get there on bus 15, which stops in front. Enjoy and Cheers

I made it a point to visit this place while we were in Portland a while back and I wasn’t disspointed. Great tap list, great atmosphere, great service. One of those bars that you go in for a pint and end up slowly sipping multiple ones becuase it’s just a such a good place to imbibe. Tops.

Impressive list of some 50 taps with some forreign boring ones (Guiness etc) but also a lot of locals including some real exciting ones. Service at the bar was fine but I have to deduct a point for not having wifi. It’s a large british style pub

A great English feel with exceptional service. The beer list was a definite plus too. The food was pub food - I ordered the bangers and mash that was okay (but kinda plain). My friend got the chicken pot pie and liked it. Overall worth the trip if you want to hit the top historical craft beer places in Portland but I don’t really see the need to visit here or Belmont Station again as the brewpubs in town are more interesting.

You have to love the look and feel of this place...not to mention the history. Feels like a classic British Pub...only bigger. although the beer list is not quite what I’d call amazing...it’s pretty darn good. Add to that some really good pub food...with the cool vibe and you have a great night out...even better with a large group.

Visited on a Monday afternoon in November 2015. The exterior hides the old traditional English Pub Interior. It’s dark with lots of wood panels and beer memorabilia adorning the walls. Service was good. Snacked on a scotch egg with proper hand cut chips that tasted great. Interesting beer range at decent prices. Really like this place.

Visited around dinner time on a Wednesday. Located in a neighborhood, very much a local pub feeling to the entryway. Inside, it’s a wark wood well-worn pub. Larger space, big wraparound bar, with restaurant tables up front and more communal areas around each side of the bar. 2 dart lanes. The tap selection is vast, around 60 beers on offer when I visited, and the quality was super high. Focus appeared to be on Oregon and Washington brewers, though there were a number of well chosen national craft beers. 4 casks. During my visit, there were also 15 speciality taps from the cellar including a 2009 Alaskan Smoked Porter and the 2009 Deschutes Abyss. 10 oz pours available. Solid service.

82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Went here with Ferris for brunch, and to kick-start RBSG 2015 Day 2. Tasty scotch egg! Pretty good incarnation of a "classic" English style pub, and this place has the age behind it to make it legit. Great service, excellent selection, great prices. Very uncrowded early in the day. I’d come again.

I’ve been here a few times now, and have loved it every time. I’d call it a must stop if you are visiting Portland, especially since it is just a few minutes walking from the Belmont Station. Great food, great beer. A ton of taps. They offer half pours of everything. They have a full bar if that’s your fancy. Has a total Irish or British Pub feel, and this was agreed upon by my buddy who has toured around Europe visiting them. Love my visits here, and will continue going here when I visit Portland. I just wish I had my own place like this at home. Love it.
