This brewpub, one of the earlier beer venues in the city known as "Beervana", will close forever at the end of August, 2017. It's a small, quiet, even contemplative bar better suited for a beer with a book than a rowdy evening. Prices are low,...More

This was the last stop on a 4 brewery beer crawl. The crowd was thin for late on a Friday. Probably because they were out most of their beer options. Should a brew pub every run out!!!! NOT..I was quite disappointed.

This venue was more than perfect for the taste we were searching for on a Saturday night in downtown Portland. Coming from Albuquerque, New Mexico, we're used to the nitty gritty but also a fan of well produced craft brews. The atmosphere and honesty did...More

This is a small place on a less desirable block of the Pearl District. We walked here after some oysters nearby and almost changed our mind when we got here. The door is black, the windows are dark and the buildings on the same block...More
