This place is all about the beer. I live in Portland and I would say they make the best beer in the Pacific Northwest. The building is small and comfortable with some cool outdoor seating. Pretty small menu is just enough to satisfy while keeping the focus where it belongs. Every single beer they make is in my top 3 beers in that category. Well worth the 45 minute trip from PDX!
This is a great place. Well worth the trip from Portland. Take the scenic route, out Hwy. 14, on the WA side of the Columbia. 10 beers on tap, most very good. Homo Rocks!! The brewer, Bob, is usually around in the afternoon. Food is ok, but not spectacular. This in combination with the Gorge and Full Sail, in Hood River, makes for one hell of a fine day. I’d suggest calling before visiting to verify hours.
Built in a 2-story building, the pub is downstairs so you you park on the street and walk down some wooden stairs that passes by a large growth of hop bines they use to shade the patio (and probably make beer), they were grown about 25 feet when I was there. Small patio on the outside. Inside there’s a small bar with about 10 tables for eating. Beer cans, coaster, memorabilia covers the walls. The beermenu is written on a chalk board and they have a what’s on tap list on every table. The service was prompt, quick, friendly and informative. Very ratebeer friendly and helpfull. The beer selection was full with about 10 beers on tap, no guests and no macro. Food was good. Interesting pizza choices and good looking sandwiches. I had the wurst pizza. Stone ground mustard spread on pizza crust topped with sour kraut, bratwurst that was cooked in their bitter and mozarella cheese. Very tasty! The beers they did have on tap were amazing. All of their stouts were mind blowing, especially the Black Cherry Stout and Jaywalker Russian Imperial Stout. If you do drive here, take highway 14 there from Portland, it’s a beautiful drive, especially in the early summer. It’s $1 to cross the bridge of the gods to get to I-84 which will take you to hood river or portland whichever direction you go. This is a must visit place, one of the best in the outskirt Portland area.
It’s all been said before. Very nice place in Stevenson. Prompt and friendly service. Ten selections of house beer on tap. Brewer/owner was OK with opening bottles brought in. Food is good. Beer is better. It is a beautiful drive getting there also.
Visiting some family in the pacific northwest and my sister has been here before and recommended it. Great little bar along with some really kick ass foot. Small whole in the wall in the basement of a building. Nice patio that overlooks the Columbia River too. Great people.
Couldn’t drive past on the way to Portland and not stop here! I recommend the Skamania gold course as well. Big sample tray. Amazingly they had run out of pizza on a Saturday night! The appetizers and other items were very good.
