Went on a Sunday afternoon, and it was great. In the basement of the Left Bank building, this small, but roomy tasting room, was a lovely time. The beer was wonderful, with #6 standing out, and diverse. Everything from hoppy, to funky, to malty, to smokey. No food, but bread was made available at all tables. There was old jazz playing from an old record player that set the mood, and barrels all around that remind you of the creativity of Uprightís beers. A great place to go if you want to enjoy some interesting, and creative beers.

Fantastic new brewery located in the basement of an office building not far from the Rose Garden. There are just a couple of tables as most of the space is dedicated to making their Belgian Farmhouse style beers. The staff are also very knowledgeable and helpful. The beer sampler plate was $6.50 and included 6 different brews. My personal favorites were the Four, Seven and the Late Harvest. Overall, itís a great place to hang out and spend the afternoon sampling quality beers. Hopefully theyíll continue to expand and distribute their beers outside of the Pacific Northwest as they make extremely flavorful and original brews.

Basement level brewery where you drink among the casks and brightening tanks. Great vibe, mostly locals and some dude playing blues on a guitar. Outstanding beers. Our favorite of 9 places we tried in Portland. Nice selection of bottles to go.

This was one of the coolest brewery experiences Iíve ever had. You walk into a coffee shop in an industrial building, and thereís a sign pointing the elevator that says "Upright, basement". You literally walk into the brewery. There are 6 taps with amazing things to try. You hang out and drink by all the barrels. Go here!!

Visited before the Blazers game on a Thursday. Located in the basement, not super easy to find, though I followed the signs on the sidewalk and found it pretty easily. The layout is low frills, with benches and tables spread out throughout the active brewing and barrel rooms. There isnít even really a bar, they serve you straight from the taps in the corner. 9 total beers on draft, 3 of which were special or seasonal. Several sizes of pour available. Turntable was spinning soul and jazz, which really worked or the space. The crowd was really great, had several good beer and basketball conversations. I can certainly understand this space could get overcrowded, and perhaps the beer range is not as vast as other places in town, but this is really my kind of place.

94 = ★★★★Ĺ (World class)

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

In the basement of its building which makes it difficult to find when the sign isnít outside yet. But once inside, you find the cozy comfort of a very tiny taproom/brewery. $3 12 ounce pours! Amazing deal for the quality of beer. Cheap tasters as well. All cash only. Well worth the visit. Bottles also available for purchase.

One of my favorite stops in Portland during our trip. Not the easiest to find and parking is horrible, but worth the search. Bare bones taproom in the basement of the building, but I dig the tables and drinking amongst their barrels and brewing equipment. Beers are super cheap and all very delicious. People were friendly and the selection was great. You cannot come to Portland and not make it to Upright.

I absolutely loved my time at Upright. The kind of environment I always feel extremely comfortable drinking in, surrounded by brewing equipment, oak casks, the sight of open fermentation vessels quietly bubbling away. The tap room is basic, a few tables, chairs etc. Whatever, itís all about sampling wonderfully delicious beer. Impressed with the diversity too, not just a fantastic selection of farmhouse ales but there was also a pilsner, bitter and smoked available...all very good. The record player drifting out some killer tunes on vinyl completes it. Perhaps the basement feel would not make you linger for long if you came here regularly but if you havenít sampled Upright wares before itís a must.

Of all the places n Portland we went, this was the most Portlandy. Located in a basement, cash only, seating amongst the fermenters, and music provided by a vinyl record player (of course). Going to the bathroom was like stumbling in to a David Lynch Movie if you make a wrong turn. Oh, and of course plenty of great beer to be had...
