Another legendary American beer bar. The beer list and crabmeat grilled cheese will alter your world. Be warned. Owned by the Liquid Riot peeps and THEY are the pulse of Portland

Kind of a dungeon cellar vibe, so it plays well at night. Lots of young people hang out there so it can get kind of loud but they have an awesome bottle selection as well as some well-curated taps. Definitely a cool hang on a Saturday night.

Came here on a Tuesday around the dinner hour. Cool vibe, like a stone cellar. Some good stuff on tap including hod Fred Flanders and other sour goodies. I also ate here too which does not seem like the norm, but my charcuterie was excellent. Awesome place.

Went late Wednesday evening. Not that many people but still loud. Really nice selection with local beer. Bit of a cellar feel to the place.

Novare Res should be at the top of any self-respecting beer lover’s tour of Portland. It is hidden away in the centre of Portland off a backstreet from Exchange Street. Out front there is large patio area with plenty of tables. Indoor feels like a Belgian cellar bar - dark & moody. They have some 25 taps on offer as well as a large bottles list (quoted as being over 500). Beer selection is varied, high-quality and interesting. They have a great mix of local and international beers. Lots of obscure sour beers and obtuse adjunct stouts. Couple that with good service and you have yourself a grade A beer joint. A must-visit.

A little pricey for the area but one of the best beer lists on the East Coast, period. You want vintages going back, come here. You want Belgian and Italian beer, come here. World-class. New breweries on tap. Superb staff. Great place.

Went in on a Friday night, maybe around 10PM. Place was pretty packed, but it was nice out so most people were outside. Service was really slow, but the selection was insane. Prices were pretty reasonable. Definitely a must-try if you’re in Portland.

Huge expectations, but in the end didn’t live up to them. Very cool location, love the beer garden, decor inside a bit boring. Service was too busy to be helpful or personable, had 3 different servers in roughly 2 hours. The draft list gets a big do-over. Half the list was Sierra Nevada due to an event the night before. A couple nice locals, but I feel like I missed out big time. Bottle list was great, Cantillon available, decent pricing. A nice touch was the beer program for ticking specific beers. Food was supremely disappointing. Gross pate, and horrendous sausage. Did have some outstanding rosemary ham. Not a destination bar as I was lead to believe. If in town check it out, but not our of your way. ******* Re-visit. I gave it a second chance and was just as average as my first visit. The draft list was pedestrian. The bottle list was just as a bad. Their vintage list was nothing I couldn’t go to my local store and get. This place is a skip.
